Enjoy these free printable Halloween Games for kids this week.
Only a few more weeks until Halloween, trick or treats, dressing up and bags of candy 😉
Kids get so excited about holidays so I always like to round up some FREE & fun Halloween printable activities and games to play that keep with the holiday theme. These are perfect to use at home, at school parties or as a trick or treat alternative just in case it rains on Halloween night.
21 FREE Printable Halloween Games
I remember the first year we couldn’t go trick or treating due to the weather 🙁
It was not a happy evening at first — kids constantly looking out the window asking “Do you think it will stop?”
It did not. And it wasn’t just a light rain — it was one of those cold, icy, below-40-degrees-with-rain type of nights.
So we decided to make it an alternative Halloween that year — watch a few of their favorite Halloween movies and play some fun games as a family help to soften the blow of missing out on trick or treating.
Now I look for some new printable Halloween activities and games each year — easy activities to keep kids thinking (like word searches or cypher-codes) or fun family games we can play together. Sometimes we’ll do a few after school or on the weekends. And I always have something on hand for easy, quick ideas when I’m prepping dinner or we just want a fun activity to do.
Here are a few Halloween items we LOVE to have on hand for these games along with affiliate links to each —
- pieces of candy corn or small things like spider rings to use as game markers with BINGO or similar games
- Halloween themed pencils for the word games & thinking games
- White cardstock paper for printing
- and colorful plastic clipboards to hold papers in place!
Just in case you need some last minute party games this month or find yourself in the same predicament with bad weather on Halloween night, browse this list of super fun activities that are sure to please!
