Every once in a while, I like to get crafty – usually because, as a parent, I am required to get crafty. Sure, I have walked away from a few volunteer events with battle wounds like back pain from spending way too long painting props, and a permanent scar on my hand from that time I opened a container of glitter with a flat head screwdriver. (Ouch!) Luckily for you, no glitter is required to put together any of the following fun DIY Halloween games for kids.

One of my favorite forced volunteer events is Halloween. If our school isn’t doing a Fall Festival, I typically host a Halloween party for the kids.
So, today I’m sharing a few of my favorite fun DIY Halloween games for kids.
