1. Mummy Bowling: Transform plain bowling pins into something spooky with something we all have in our house — toilet paper! Add googly eyes and a few bows for a finishing touch and you’re ready to roll. (via Giggles Galore)


2. Spider Corn Hole: This is not your average backyard game of corn hole. Double-sided tape and silver glitter make spider webs that are the perfect backdrop for tossing plush spiders at. (via Crafts Unleashed)


3. Pin the Spider on the Web: Have the free file printed out at your local office supply store and attach it to your wall with festive washi tape. Blindfold the kids and let the fun ensue. (via Ella Claire)


4. Spooky Tic-Tac-Toe: This is one game your little monster will love making just as must as they love playing. Color the rocks with paint markers instead of regular paint to make the process even more kid-friendly. (via Smashed Peas and Carrots)


5. Tin Can Bowling: Grab a couple of cans out of the recycling bin and paint each one as a different spooky creature. Then just stack ’em up and knock ’em down. (via Red Ted Art)


6. Skeleton Scavenger Hunt: Grab a couple plastic skeletons from the dollar store, disassemble them and hide the pieces around your house. Divide the kids into teams and have them race to see who can put their skeleton back together first. (via Happy Go Lucky Blog)


7. Mummy Sack Race: Wrap each contestant’s legs together with white streamers (or toilet paper!) and race towards the finish line. Whoever makes it there first, without tearing through the paper, wins. (via Delia Creates)


8. Pumpkin Toss: Using craft pumpkins to put this game together means you’ll be able to pull it out for years to come. Attach the whole thing to a piece of foam board to keep the pumpkins from falling over. (via A Pumpkin and a Princess)


9. Halloween Bingo: If you’ve got a group of kids and want them to sit still, this printable bingo game is the ticket. Play with candy corn markers, but make sure you set out extra because there’s bound to be few casualties. (via Crazy Little Projects)
