When you throw a Halloween party, games are the center of attention. However, sometimes you want the fun of a Halloween party with just your close friends and family.

Kids will love these super fun games throughout the scary season. Each game is Halloween themed for so much fun. Everyone will have a blast.
If you are looking for something else to do besides trick or treat, try some of these really easy ideas. You do not have to spend a ton of time or money to have fun.
Everyone will enjoy these games and make lots of great memories. There will definitely be lots of laughter involved.
Let’s get started with these fun and easy games.
1. Sweep the Pumpkin
This is one extremely fun Halloween party game that is fun at any age. Simply buy some cheap orange balloons and paint some fun pumpkin faces on them.
Each person takes one balloon and a broom or mop and tries to maneuver it through a backyard obstacle course of your choosing. This is fun because it is tougher than it looks and a popped balloon is always a possibility.
This is one of the easiest Halloween games for kids. It is so fun to race to the finish line in this fast paced relay race.
Kids love a fast paced game and it definitely keeps everyone on their toes. This game is hilarious to play and watch.
2. Make Your Own Horror Movie/Play
What is more fun than writing and acting out a play or movie as a family? Have one person in charge of each area of the movie or play and have fun with it!
You can easily video the production with a basic phone and watch it later. Grab a witch hat and a jack o lantern and get creative.
You probably have props and items you can use around the house making this frugal but fun. I definitely suggest shopping your home first.
Take a look at your Halloween box and see what all you have. You might just be surprised at your supplies that have collected over the years.
3. Make Me a Scarecrow
This frugal game is the perfect Halloween party game for families because it uses things already found in the home. Gather up all the things needed to build a scarecrow.
This includes: newspaper, old clothes, pillowcases and stuffing of any kind. Take some magic markers and various other items to jazz it up.
Compete in teams to make the best scarecrow or witch or anything you choose. Feel free to choose the one you prefer.
In fact, it is so fun that you might want to play several rounds. Everyone can take a turn dressing as a scarecrow first and then a witch and so on. This definitely is tons of fun.
4. Wrap That Mummy
Toilet paper is not ultra cheap but it is cheap enough when you buy the inexpensive variety. Give teams of two toilet paper rolls. They will need 2 per team.
Race to see who can cover their mummy first. Nothing can show except the eyes, nose and mouth in the end to win.
To make it particularly challenging, you can cover both people. The person that covers the second person has to do it while draped in toilet paper making it especially fun and challenging.
This is hilarious and provides so much fun and laughter. Plus, it is very easy and budget friendly. You definitely want to take lots of pictures during this silly and fun game.
5. Zombie Races
Everyone has a zombie walk. You know the one… straight legs, scary sounds and arms reaching forward.
Determine ahead of time what qualifies as a zombie walk and then race doing exactly that. Trust me when I tell you that you need to video the ensuing fun.
There are bound to be plenty of funny moments. Let everyone compete to see who has the best zombie race. This is hilarious to watch.
6. Pumpkin Ring Toss
Scatter mini pumpkins and use them for a ring toss game. It will be so festive using the pumpkins and a lot of fun as well.
You can often pick up a bag of these small pumpkins very inexpensively at the grocery store or local farm. After the party, you can use the pumpkins for décor around the house.
Another idea is to let the kids paint the pumpkins after your are finished playing the ring toss game. This is a great way to reuse them and doubles as another fun activity.
I love ideas that save money and I bet you do too.
7. Halloween Scavenger Hunt
Make a Halloween themed scavenger hunt for the kids to do. You can make this inside the house, in the yard or even around the neighborhood.
Make a list of Halloween items they need to find and whoever finds them first wins. Candy corn makes a great prize.
Children can work in teams or alone. This might just depend on how many people are participating and where the scavenger hunt is.
8. Poke a Pumpkin
Place candy or other fun items inside plastic cups. Just make sure these items are small and light. You do not want to place anything too heavy in these cups. Light items will make it easy to glue these cups later to the poster board.
Then cover the cups with orange tissue paper. Use a rubber band to secure the paper to the cup.
Hot glue the bottom of the cups to a poster board. Arrange the cups to look like a pumpkin.
Finally, make a stem using construction paper and place on top of the pumpkin. Children can take turns poking the pumpkin.
It is so fun to see what is inside and everyone gets a prize. Kids love finding candy and other small trinkets inside the cups.
