Tomorrow will be fun and healthy snacks; Friday will be decor!
Here are some ideas....
Candy Corn Guessing Games
This is an all time favorite...how many candy corns are in the jar? Shake it, roll it around, and hope you guess right! This is super easy.........find a clear jar and fill it with candy corn. Empty the jar out into a bowl and count the candy corn., refill the jar with the counted candy corn. The child who guesses the closest number wins the jar and get to take it home. A plastic jar is best for little hands!
Unfold and lay out a single sheet of tissue on a table. Place the balloon in the center of the tissue wrapping paper.Create balloon ghosts. You'll need small balloons (like water balloons) and white tissue wrapping paper or large white paper napkins. Blow up an entire bag of balloons.Gather the tissue around the balloon and tie a ribbon around the base of the balloon to create a head and body of a ghost.
Line up two chairs so that the children can burst their ghosts. Place all the ghosts you created in a large box or tub about 30 feet from where the kids' chairs are. Then create a "dead ghost" box for each team. You can place them where you like, but make sure that the distance between this box and where the "live ghost" box is the same for each team.
Divide the players into two teams. Each team lines up behind the respective chairs. Then you start the relay race.
The first player runs to grab a ghost from the box. He or she must run back to the chair and burst the ghost by sitting on it.
After the player has burst the ghost, the next player takes the ghost and puts it in the team's box, then runs to get his or her ghost. He or she brings it back to the chair and bursts it. This continues until all of the ghosts are burst.
The team who bursts the most ghosts wins the race!
Donuts on A String
What kids doesn't like donuts?! This is one fun game and I'm giving you two options depending on your class set up.
Option #1Tie a very long string around a donut and fasten the other end of the string to a very sturdy ceiling hook or fixture. The donut needs to be just above the contestant's head. The object is for the player to eat the donut using his or her teeth only (no hands). The player must jump for the donut.
Here's a game for the that the pre-school set can also enjoy!
Pin the Nose on the Pumpkin
Much like pin the tail on the donkey, except this time it's a nose and a pumpkin! Choose a very large pumpkin; you can make it out of cardstock or just buy one. Make sure the eyes nose and mouth are large and clear.
Give each player a triangle shaped nose with their names written on it. Blind-fold each kid, spin them around , point them towards the pumpkin and have them "pin" the nose. The child who gets closest to the nose wins.
I'd love to know what games you played and how your party went, so please leave a comment!
