DIY Halloween Party Games for Kids

Halloween is one of my kids favorite holidays – maybe because it’s the one time of year that they are allowed to take candy from strangers! Here at Fancy That we just have so many scary cute Halloween things – it’s hard not to get into the Halloween spirit!

I love the mini eyeball balloons we carry – and that’s what inspired this Eye Popping Fun Halloween game!

Eye popping fun for your Halloween party!

First things first! Stop into the our Hillsboro shop and grab a few packs of the mini eyeball balloons, a bag of confetti and some small treats from our favor bar. And maybe one of these super cute Meri Meri Halloween garlands.

Mini eye ball balloons, confetti and small treats!

Once you’ve got your loot, start filling the balloons with either a single treat or some confetti for a little trick.

Make your game board with a piece of cardboard, some construction paper and glue.

Next, make your game board. You’ll need a piece of cardboard and enough construction paper to cover it. I eyeballed it (get it – eyeballed hahahaha) and made my board about 18 inches on each side. I cut the construction paper into squares and glued it to the cardboard.

Puncture the cardboard with scissors.

Take your scissors, and using the sharp tip make enough holes, somewhat evenly spaced, on your game board for the balloons. The amount of holes will depend on how many balloons you’ve filled.

Use a pencil to help poke the end of the balloon through the hole.

I used the eraser side of a pencil to push the end of the balloon through the hole I made with the scissors. Once all the balloons are attached you can flip the board over and secure the balloons by placing a piece of painters tape over the ends of the balloons.

Hang the finished game board on the wall and decorate with spider webs!

You’re ready to hang the finished game board on the wall! I used tacks, but you can use tape if your board is not too heavy. I got creepy and covered my board with spider webs.

Check out the tutorial video below to see the game in action!

Now the fun begins! I gave each of the kids a sharpened pencil and had them take turns popping the balloons. They either got a trick balloon with confetti or a treat!
