Halloween and Fall Games

Published May 12, 2013 by sunhealersblog

I love everything about Fall.  This year I want to have a Harvest festival.  I have a list of games and activities to do with the kids.  Hope you guys enjoy!

Fall Festival 005

  1. Pumpkin painting:  For all the little ones and the not so little ones.  Now that you have finished picking out your pumpkins from the pumpkin patch, you can paint the pumpkins.  All you need is paint to either paint on a face instead of carving one out or you can paint on any Halloween theme like a moon or a cat.
  2. Harvest Bowl:  Draw ghost faces on the toilet paper with a black marker and use a small pumpkin to use as the ball.  Roll it to knock down the toilet paper rolls.  Try stacking some to make it more fun.
  3. Pin the nose on a jack-o-lantern or Pin the tail on the cat .
  4. Bobbing for apples.
  5. Pumpkin passing:  Similar to musical chairs.  Once the music stops the person left holding the pumpkin is out until last person who is left will be the winner.
  6. Apple-apple-pumpkin:  Similar to duck-duck-goose but instead it’s Apple-apple-pumpkin.
  7. Costume contest
  8. Harvest dash:  Fill up containers with candy corn and see who or which team can empty it the fastest.
  9. Relay Race:  Pass the corn instead of a baton.
  10. Hot Potatoe
  11. Pumpkin Pie or Sweet Potato Pie eating contest.
  12. Pumpkin Foot race:  See who can kick their pumpkin across the finish line first.
  13. Guess the Pumpkin’s weight
  14. Throw pennies in a carved out pumpkin
  15. Pumpkin seed toss:  Line up a couple containers in a row and have the children take turns throwing seeds into them in seqeunce.
  16. Pumpkin Ring Toss:  Line up the pumpkins and toss a ring to see if you can get it through the stem.
  17. Mummy Wrap:  This game calls for 2 person teams.  Using a roll of toilet paper see who can wrap their team member as a mummy the fastest.
  18. Cauldron Guess:  You can buy small cauldrons at a Dollar Store and fill them up with icky and creepy food and have the players guess what is in it. ( ex:  noodles for the brain or worms, boiled quail eggs or olives for eyeballs, peeled grapes, corn husk for hair, string cheese cut in half as fingers, spiderwebs, almond slithers as fingernails,  loose corn as teeth, fake fur, red jello mixed with small sausages as guts)
  19. Cauldron and Jack-O-Lantern toss: Line up small cauldrons and jack-o-lanterns in a row and have the players toss a small creepy rubber objects like eyeballs or animals in them.
  20. Candy Corn guess:  Fill a jar with candy corn and have the players guess how many are in the jar.
  21. Pumpkin Carving contest
  22. Witch’s Brew:  Cut out creepy shapes about the size of a silver dollar using construction paper (apples, pumpkins, eyeballs, fingers, newt, frog legs, candy corn, tongue.)  Using a straw as a vacuum, each contestant tries to pick up the shapes and place it into a bowl.  Time the players to see who can do it the fastest.
  23. See who can dress a Scarecrow the fastest
  24. Find an object in a haystack

Witch Hat

Published May 8, 2013 by sunhealersblog

I just Love witchy stuff…  This is a very simple activity to do with your children for arts and craft time.  You may need to help making the cone, depending on how old the child is.

Witch's hat

You will need:

  • construction paper ( 2 black, 1 purple)
  • scissors
  • tape
  • yellow  marker
  • glue

What to do:

  1. Use one of the black piece of construction paper to make the hat by rolling it into a cone and gluing or taping together.
  2. Cut an inch strip out of the purple construction paper.
  3. Draw a buckle in the middle of this strip and color it in with the yellow  marker.
  4. Glue this around the larger end of the cone.
  5. Use the other black piece of construction paper to trace around the larger end of the cone.
  6. Then draw a bigger circle around that smaller circle.
  7. Cut them out.  This will be the bottom end of the hat. You will have a hole in the middle.
  8.  Tape it together  to the cone from the inside.  Gluing it will be too hard and sloppy.

Witch’s Lantern

Published May 3, 2013 by sunhealersblog

There are many different types of lanterns one can make for Halloween.  This is my interpretation of what a witch’s lantern would look like….Just for fun.

witch's lantern

You will need:

  • 1 black  construction paper
  • 1 purple construction paper
  • 1 green construction paper
  • orange and white  paint
  • craft eyes
  • glue
  • scissors

What to do:

  1. Take the black and purple construction paper and place it in front of you horizontally.
  2. Cut an inch strip vertically across from one of the sides on both sheets.  The black strip will be the handle.
  3. Fold the paper in half, long ways. (like a hot dog, not a hamburger)
  4. Then cut  lines, 1 centimeter wide, an inch apart from the middle where it’s folded, leaving an inch border at the end of the paper on both sides not cut. (Do not cut all the way through.)
  5. Glue the papers together at the borders.
  6. Roll the paper in the shape of a cylinder and glue it together.  (This is the lantern)
  7. Glue on or tape on the handle for the lantern.
  8. Paint on a spider web with spiders with the white and orange paint.
  9. Trace or draw a frog with the green construction paper and cut it out.  Also cut slit on the bottom middle of the frog at an angle about 1 inch long.
  10. Glue on the craft eyes to the frog.
  11. slide the frog in on top of lantern in front of the handle.
  12. Glue it on to make sure it stays.

DIY Bats

DIY bats

Amazing what you can make out of egg cartons.  I made these bats out of recycled material.  I painted blood dripping down from their mouths as they just finished feeding.

To make these scary bats you will need:

  • egg carton
  • paint
  • something sharp to punch a hole with
  • string or rubber band
  • (craft eyes and glue, optional)

What to do:

  1. Separate 3 cups from an egg carton.
  2. Cut out part of the bottoms of the 2 outside cups to resemble bat wings.
  3. Paint the bat. (black)
  4. Add eyes, a mouth, and decorate.
  5. Hang it from a string or a rubber band.
