Halloween CAN Be Fun for All Ages (Even Older Kids)
Looking for a simple Halloween activity that you can enjoy with your older kids?
These printable Halloween games is going to be a big hit!
Now that my boys are getting older, I’m thinking of new ways to make the holidays fun.
We still get out our Halloween playdough mats (I’m not sure if the boys are just trying to keep me happy because they know that I love playdough but I’ll take it!) and some other Halloween fun activities.
But, we love adding new activities to our holiday printable collection. Especially ones that are interactive and challenging!
Halloween Printable Activities That Are Fun & Build Skills
These Halloween printables (called Witches Dungeon Eyeball Hunt and Find the Spider at the Pumpkin Patch) are kind of like coordinate grid games. Except that each only has one quadrant and one side has letters 😉
These types of games are fantastic for:
- Interactive fun – players have to take turns asking questions and responding
- Practice using grids (for example, finding D6)
- Logic and reasoning
When I’ve played these printable Halloween games with my boys, we found them to be similar to Battleship.
I love that we can play these games again and again!
How Do You Play These Free Printable Halloween Games?
Both games are played the same.
I’ll use the Witches Dungeon Eyeball Hunt as an example to walk you through the steps. Suggested instructions are included on the page but you can totally tweak.
- It’s suggested that this game is for 2 players. If you have more than that (playing with a small group or class), you could have 2 teams.
- Print out 2 copies of the game page.
- Each player picks a square and secretly draws an eyeball somewhere in the bottom of it. (The boys and I have also written down our choice on a small sticky note to keep track.)
- Take turns asking questions to try to find out where your opponent’s eyeball is located. (My boys like to play “rock, paper, scissors” to sort out who goes first.)
- Use the other grid to make note of your opponent’s answers. For example, if they answer no to “Does the square have any spiders?”, you’d cross off all squares with spiders.
- The first person to find their opponent’s eyeball is the winner!
Creative Ideas for Using These 2 Free Halloween Games
A few ideas for places where you can use these printable Halloween games are:
- Homeschool (brain breaks)
- Boredom busters before the holiday
- Halloween party
- Library (other other community) event
I suggest that you laminate the games or put them in dry erase pocket sleeves. You can use dry erase markers to easily mark and wipe off your games (so you can use them again and again!).
You can take these games to the next level by having your kids write out their questions.
If learning a foreign language, practice vocabulary. (You might have to look up these words in your foreign language dictionary prior to playing but it will be awesome practice!).
