Halloween games with your kids.
A really fun game to get Halloween started is a dancing contest. Gather all the kids into a big room. Make sure you remove all the furniture out of the room so it won’t get into the way of the festivities. Tell the kids that they are going to have a dance off. They have to show you their best moves to fun and scary Halloween music. You can find kid friendly Halloween music at your local Wal-Mart. You can make them really excited by telling them that the kid with all the best moves will win a prize. The kids who don’t win will still have a good time wiggling around the room to Monster Mash. This is a great game for Halloween because it’s really simple to play and it can start of the evening for your kids. Kids love to dance and they can show off their moves in this contest.
Another fun musical game is musical chairs but the Halloween version. It’s the same as the original game but with Halloween music. If you don’t know how to play the game, then all you have to do is buy some scary and fun Halloween music. Then you have to line up several chairs. The number of chairs you get is according to how many children are playing the game. If you have six children playing the game, then you line up only five chairs. You make all the kids line up by the chairs. Then you play the music and have them walk around the chairs. Then you stop the music without giving any warning and the kids have to sit down in one of the chairs. Whichever kid is not sitting in one of the chairs are out of the game. That you continue doing the same thing until only one kid is left sitting. That kid is the winner. Tell the kids that whoever wins gets a prize. Musical chairs is a game you can play at anytime of the year.
