    Hello everyone! I am looking for fun games or activities for a school Halloween party for 3rd graders.

    I was thinking that we'd play the mummy game (each team of 2 gets a roll of toilet paper and you see which team can "wrap" someone the fastest.

    What else?

    I am desperate...the teacher has declared NO FOOD ALLOWED, so the kids are already disappointed and disgruntled parents are emailing me, "Why bother?" Seriously, I might have to smack some of them. I know we can have fun without goodies!

    Thank you in advance for you help!

    You could do pumpkin bowling. You arrange empty 2 liter bottles (or you could put a little sand in the bottom) and then use a small pumpkin to roll down the lane to knock them over. Touchy feely station, cooked spaghetti for brains, peeled grapes for eyeballs, raisins for witches warts, etc.

    From our class party:

    Pin the head on Mr. Bones (skeleton)
    We did the bowling ghosts with 2 litre bottles, foam pumpkin
    Painting pumpkins
    Witch hat ring toss
    Musical chairs (we used straw bales but could be regular chairs)
    Toss the bean bag into the monsters mouth (Frankenstien head - box)
    Mask decorating (this was a hit with the girls)
    Spider stomp (string tied to a balloon then to childs ankle - balloon with streamers)
    Witch relay race (race down to end - put on dress and hat, ride broom back and switch)
    Cursed Pumpkin (like hot potato)
