Are you in charge of your child's Halloween Classroom Party Games this year and need a few ideas? Below are 10 fun games you might want to try with your class.

 1) Pumpkin Bowling 
Decorate six full toilet paper rolls with little black eyes to resemble ghosts. Place the toilet paper rolls either in typical bowling formation on the ground or upward in a pyramid fashion and have the kids bowl with mini pumpkins.

 2) Candy Corn Bingo 
Create a small 16-square Bingo Board with printed Halloween images, letters, or words. Call out those images, letters, or words and have the kids keep score with Candy Corn.

 3) Witch Hat Ring Toss 
Get a decorated witch hat and pool rings or make rings out of paper and pipe cleaners. At the party, place the hat 10-25 feet away (depending on kids' ages) and have them try to toss the ring on the witch hat's pointy top.

 4) Skeleton Bones Puzzle 
Get or make two skeletons out of paper or cardboard (you can find them at a party store like Parker Party America). Take them apart, then have the kids race to see who can put the skeleton back together the fastest. This can be done one on one or group against group.

 5) Pin the Face on the Pumpkin 
Get a big poster of a Halloween Character and then cut out a mouth (or entire face) out of anything you have at home: paper, cardboard, felt, etc. At the party, blindfold the kiddos and tell them to try to tape the mouth/face in the right place on your character.

 6) Musical Chairs with Halloween Cutouts 
Instead of chairs, print out as many Halloween pictures as the number of kids in the class. At the party, place the pictures on the floor, in a circle (as you would with chairs in the game Musical Chairs). Start the music and have the kids walk on the outside of the pictures. When the music stops, the kids must jump/step on a picture. Every round, take a picture away until only the winning child is left!

 7) Guessing Game 
Fill a large jar with items like candy corn, plastic spiders, or other toys and have the kids guess how many there are. You can offer a prize for the child who guesses most accurately.

 8) Tic-Tac-Toe Game 
Make a large Tic-Tac-Toe board with ropes on the classroom floor and have the kids play with orange and white pumpkins.

 9) Dress the Scarecrow Relay Race 
Gather two pairs of pants, two shirts, two hats, two pairs of gloves, two pairs of boots, two scarves, and anything else you want your little scarecrows to wear. At the party, divide the class in half. Place the clothes for each team at the other end of the room. The goal of the game is to be the first team to have all their members, each in turn, get dressed as a scarecrow, run to the other side, get undressed again, and run back to the finish line.

 10) Witch Pitch 
Design a large witch's hat out of black paper and place six mini plastic cauldrons (from the dollar store or party store) strategically on the paper hat. Kids can each take turns throwing candy corn into the cauldrons. You can make each cauldron be a different point value if you are keeping score or just give the kids a certain amount of candy corn and see how many they can get into a tiny cauldron.
