Once one player gets to the end of the garden and back, the second player must take the balloon from them without letting it drop to the floor. The winning team is the one who gets all their players back to the finish line in the quickest time!

The Ultimate Halloween Obstacle Course

What you need: Cooked spaghetti, jelly, garden toys & Halloween decorations. 

This Halloween game is a great way to get the most out of all those Halloween decorations you’ve been hoarding over the years. If you don’t have any, a quick trip to a discount store or supermarket should be all you need. The only limit to this obstacle course is your imagination!

Create an obstacle course in your back garden using your garden toys, slides, swingsets, mud kitchens and paddling pools can all be used. The aim of this Halloween game is to create a spooky course where little ones get to take part in Halloween activities at each stage, here are some of out favourite ideas.

Buried Bones

Sandpits aren’t just for summer and this game proves it! Take apart a plastic skeleton and bury the bones in the sand. Your little ones need to dig for the bones and find their pieces before moving on to the next activity. For added educational fun, ask players to find certain bones and identify them as they go.

Ghoulish Pool

Dust off the paddling pool and get ready for some messy play! Place Halloween decorations such as rubber spiders at the bottom of the pool then fill the pool with cooked spaghetti and jelly (you can even add some fake blood to really amp up the spooky). Get players to take their shoes off and hunt for the spiders using their feet, they must collect them all before heading to the next challenge!

Shriek & Slide

If you have a slide in your garden, this is a great way to get it involved. Place jelly, cooked spaghetti and fake blood along the slide and get your players to slide down it, the messier they get – the better! You can even use the slide for the Ghoulish Pool game to add even more excitement.

Egg & Spooooooon Race

Everyone loves an egg & spoon race, but with a little twist, you can turn it into an extra spooky game. Paint eyeballs onto plain ping pong balls, if you don’t have these, why not use hard-boiled eggs instead? Play individually or in teams to create a relay tournament. The winner of this Halloween game is the person who gets back to the finish line without losing (or breaking) their eyeball.

Scarecrow Runway

What you need: Pumpkins, old clothes, newspaper & marker pens.

This Halloween game is a fantastic way to get your little ones to show off their creative sides! Give each child, or team, a bundle of old clothes, a pumpkin and plenty of newspaper and ask them to make their own scarecrow. Marker pens can be used to draw faces on the pumpkin if your little ones aren’t old enough to carve their own! Once the scarecrows are complete, get the players to parade their creations along the garden to spooky Halloween songs. There doesn’t have to be just one winner for this game, awards can be handed out to the scariest scarecrow, the biggest or even the worst!
