Halloween Party Ideas for Preschool and Kindergarten

One week till Halloween.
Wooooo...and it's time to plan the Halloween party.  

I thought I'd repost some ideas that have worked for our parties in the past. 

Before I show you some pics and ideas for Halloween,
 I want to let you know that for the next two days (October 25th and 26th), I am offering a 20% OFF SALE on my favourite Fall Resource below.

I use this set of songs with magnet/felt board images
 every year.

Why?  Because the kids love it and the songs are catchy and easy to remember!

Take a look at the contents below!

Check it out HERE!

Next, on to Halloween Party Ideas!

One game that is always really popular with our class is GHOST CATCHER.  

I was introduced to this game by my co-teacher.  

It's easy to set-up, and super fun for the kids to play. 

All you need is a few empty, clean 4L milk jugs (cut off the bottoms) and some white paper towel ghosts on a string.

One or two children pull the ghosts around on the table.  

The other children hold a milk jug by the handle and try to catch the ghosts.  

Through the course of playing, the milk jug can get banged kind of hard on the table, so you might want a backup jug or two in case one of them gets bent.  

Another stand-by at our parties is PUMPKIN GOLF. 


All you do is carve a pumpkin with a nice big, low mouth and insert the end of a paper ramp right into it.  

To keep the ball from rolling off, make sure that you bend the bristol board ramp along the edges!  

we have a couple of different options.

Here the kids are drawing faces and colouring the pumpkins with markers.

We leave out a supply of Halloween stickers that they can add, too.

They can also use a hammer to pound in some golf pegs.
For another twist, give the kids some elastics to attach around the pegs to create a geo board!

For a group activity, I'd recommend trying the
"Looking for Dracula" by Charlotte Diamond

"Looking for Dracula" is similar to the 
"Going on a Bear Hunt song," 
but it has a Halloween theme. 

You can find it on her 10 Carrot Diamonds CD.
In the mix, we also have:
 BOWLING with the pins decorated like ghosts,

BALLOON TENNIS using balloons and paper plates
(check in another party post HERE for details)

COSTUME PARADE through our building

and then a POTLUCK LUNCH with parents.

Hope that gives you some new ideas!
