|Most children love all things Halloween. As adults, we assume it's because Halloween means candy and children generally love candy. But many children love more than exactly the abundance of candy at Halloween time. They really get into the ghoulish aspect of the holiday and delight inside the displays of goopy brains and squishy body parts.
Halloween games, therefore, could be really fun and goopy, if you wish. The kids will go from it, don't worry.
First up, a brain game. There's a fun game on store shelves in which you pick through a rubber "brain" to figure out what's in it. You are able to create this easily yourself. Have jello and fill it having a variety of items, like gummy worms and other gummy candies, some small candy and trinkets along with other items. Tell the children to root around inside the bowl of jello (call it a "brain" if this type of will get the kids more interested) to figure out what's in it. It's goopy and messy and kids love it. Best yet, color the jello black so it's too dark to determine what's inside plus it looks more like goopy brain matter (the way kids see it, anyway).
In that same, or similar vein, kids love the spaghetti game. Be sure they are wearing a smock over their clothes or are wearing play clothes before playing this game. Make a big bowl of spaghetti and fill it with all forms of items, like plastic bugs, gummy worms and other items that might feel a bit strange. Make the children feel around inside the bowl of spaghetti and identify the items they feel. Once they are done and cleaned up, have them list as many items as they could remember. Whoever gets probably the most items listed (and right) gets a prize. Spaghetti, anyone?
Another similar game that's always popular is always to take a cardboard box and paint it black, both the inside and outside. Carve a small hole in the top, really just large enough for the children to obtain their hands into, and fill the box using a variety of items. They can be related to Halloween (being a small pumpkin) or otherwise (wrapped Tootsie rolls or a tiny toy Hummer car). Have the children guess what's inside the box and award the box itself to the child who guesses probably the most number of items correctly. To create this goopy and silly, be sure to include some items which might feel like body parts or brain matter.
Kids love creating silly fictional stories, often with absurd plotlines. Halloween is the optimum time and energy to let them run wild using their imaginations. Have them spend a bit of time writing out the scariest story they could think of. Some children might need some direction not to produce it ridiculously grotesque, so use caution with one of these children in your clarification of the assignment. Once the stories are written, have the children hand them in then have a guest reader for each one of these of them. Each child will come for the front of the class and see the story with as much dramatization as they can muster. Once the story is read, everyone must guess who wrote the story. The writer should play along, otherwise everyone will know it was their story! The winner is the child who wrote a story so intriguing and unusual that nobody knew it had been his or hers!
Kids love the word find games whenever you give them a word or words concerning a holiday or something else and have them find words within those words. In this case, give them Halloween-related words and get them to locate as many scary words as they could. As an example, you might give them the word "Halloween" to see how many scary words they will make in the letters. Or you could give them a series of words and let them rearrange the letters in all of the words to create scary words, and even create a story from the scary words. Put a time limit with this game and award a prize for the child who creates the most words in the least amount of time.
