Minute to Win It Halloween Games
I’m a huge fan of minute to win it games – I’ve created over 200 for every party, season, and occasion! One of my favorite things to do for Halloween is a challenge race full of minute to win it games and any of the ones listed below or these fall party games would be perfect!
Don’t know anything about minute to win it games? Start with my minute to win it games page.
Have two team members work together to wrap up one of the team members like a mummy in toilet paper. Whoever is “the mummy” must be completely wrapped (other than face).
You could use leftover toilet paper for one of these fun Halloween party ideas!
Choose the Candy
Open a large bag of candy and put stickers on the bottom on some of the candy (at least equal to the number of teams you have).
One team member must pick a piece of candy, check for a sticker, and if there isn’t a sticker eat the piece of candy. They must keep picking candy pieces until they’ve found a sticker.
Fear Factor (entire team)
Put out a plate of food that the team must eat without using their hands. If you’re doing an adult game night, you can do things that might be tougher and grosser to eat (tofu, blue cheese, octopus, etc.).
For kids try a plate full of Halloween themed goodies (cup of dirt, gummy worms, gummy brains, peeled grapes for eyeballs, etc.).
You could also switch it up and do the same thing but make people actually name what they’re eating in this guess the food game.
Tape danger zone tape across the table and give teams a handful of Halloween Oreos. Teams have to slide the Oreos across the table and get them to land inside of the different danger zones to win.
Place plastic eyeballs (ping-pong balls with eyeballs on them) on top of Red Solo cups then have players try to toss paper airplanes at the eyeballs to knock them off. First team to knock all three off wins. This one is loads of fun for any age!
Hang plastic pumpkins, cauldrons, and other Halloweenish containers from the edge of a table. Teams have to slide candy pumpkins across the table and get them to land in the containers to win. Win money, prizes, or Halloween candy for getting the pumpkin in!
This game is one of my favorites because it seems like it should be so easy. And it’s not. Not at all.
Players have to bounce ping pong balls to get them to try to bounce into plastic pumpkins! This pumpkin game is one of my personal favorites for this time of year!
Using either toilet paper with faces like ghosts or cans like this example, have a pumpkin and “pins” setup.
Team member must bowl a strike before they can move on. After they bowl, they must reset the pins (recommend having x’s where pins go). If another team is also at the pumpkin bowling, they must take turns trying to bowl a strike. It’s extra fun if you use little pumpkins to bowl!
Trick or Treat Balloon Pop
Fill balloons with either candy or little silly Halloween inspired challenges. Teams have to pick a balloon from a bag, blow it up, and then they either get the treat (and win the round) or have to do the trick!
Teams have to just grab one balloon, no rustling around to figure out which balloons are treats vs tricks. This is one of those easy Halloween games that takes very little prep and is hilarious to watch!
Spread spiderwebs (the white stretchy kind) in a space (doorway, corner of the room, etc.). Have players stand behind a line and toss little plastic spiders at the spider web until they can get three spiders stuck in the web.
Face the Cookie
Play: Players have to put a cookie on their forehead and using only their face muscles (no hands!), get the cookie from their forehead into their mouth.
If the cookie falls to the ground, they must either pick up the cookie from the ground or get a new cookie and start over. This is one of those perfect games when you want something that’s low prep!
Play: Set up a short obstacle course (go around, over, and under things) and make the team member complete the obstacle course while walking like a zombie (or Frankenstein).
Fill up three balloons per person and put some sort of light weight items in them (feather, cereal, etc) that will weigh them down a bit. To play, players have to keep all three balloons in the air. Person who keeps them up the longest wins.
If you have enough space, make it a friendly competition and have players competing against each other at once!
Halloween Carnival Games
Hosting a Halloween carnival? Try one of these fun Halloween game ideas that are designed just for a carnival! They could also be played as regular Halloween party games too but are much more fun as carnival games! These fall festival games would be great as well!
Spider Ring Toss
Setup a Halloween tree and a bucket with those cute plastic spider rings. To play, players have to toss spider rings and try to get them to land on the Halloween tree! Make it easier by covering the tree with the stretchy spider webs so they just have to land it in the web instead of ringing the tree!
Trick or Treat Tree
Place either a trick or a treat inside small plastic pumpkins and hang them on a tree. Let kids (or seniors) pick out a one of the mini pumpkins from a tree and open up what’s inside. If they get a treat, they eat the treat. If they get a trick, they do the trick! Get full instructions and printable tricks here.
You could also skip the tree and do this with face down plastic cups that have tricks or treats inside! It’s fantastic fun watching people try to see what’s inside very not transparent cups before they choose one.
Shoot the Skeleton
Hang fake skeletons on a board and let kids shoot them with slime to win a prize. Full DIY instructions and rules for the game from Brandy’s Happy Home here. If you like DIY Halloween party games, this one’s for you!
Using just popsicle sticks, plastic spiders, and plastic cups – see who can launch spiders into a web or a bucket. Full instructions and DIY directions for making the launchers from Frugal Fun 4 Boys here. You could even make this as one of your Halloween crafts first then play!
Halloween Games for Seniors
I get emails from my readers often asking about games for seniors, so I thought I’d put together a little section here with Halloween games that would work well for senior citizens! Any of the printable Halloween games (Scattergories, Movie Trivia, etc.) above would work as well!
And of course, all of these fun ideas would work for kids, teens, and adults as well!
Guess How Many Candy Corn?
Put a bunch of candy corn in a bowl and give a prize to whoever can guess the closest to the actual number. Get a free printable game sign from Better Homes and Gardens here.
Full Size Pumpkin Memory
This is a simplified version of pumpkin memory here but make it a little more challenging for seniors by adding in various types of Halloween characters such as bats, cats, and witches! Add this to your other outdoor Halloween crafts as a low key option.
