Tomorrow I’m hosting a Halloween party/play group for my daughter and her friends and I wanted to quickly share the activities we are going to do. These would be perfect for a family Halloween party, a preschool Halloween party or even a younger Elementary school Halloween party. They are easy to put together, don’t cost much at all and will keep the kids so happy! I think they would be perfect to do as a family after school so your kids aren’t itching to go Trick-or-Treating at 4:00 pm. 🙂
So, here we go – some really EASY HALLOWEEN GAMES to add to your weekend festivities!
EASY HALLOWEEN GAMES
I’m excited to share with you my Halloween porch decorations this year. In years past, I’ve just focused on my front door (see my Skeleton, Frankenstein and Spider’s Web doors that are super easy DIY projects), but this year I wanted to decorate my entire front porch. I was inspired by the severed fingers I made last year to do a Witches theme and I think it turned out awesome!
I got a few new pieces to amp up my decor from the Halloween section of Oriental Trading and they were perfect! I still got to do a little bit of DIY crafting, but these pieces saved me a ton of time and look great!

With just a few dollars and a few supplies, I turned a “Cousin It” looking bush/tree in my front yard into a Halloween MONSTER! Let me explain how you can DIY your own Monster Tree Eyes to spookifiy (or add hilarity) to your yard for Halloween!
Each year we like to get things started in our neighborhood by BOO’ing a few of our neighbors. I love when a week later there are You’ve Been Boo’d signs in the windows of each house on our street. When Collective Bias Inc. and it’s advertiser offered to sponsor the fun I jumped right in! This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small commission when purchases are made through these.
Typically I’m the one in our neighborhood that jumps into Halloween in September. I get out all of my decorations Labor Day weekend and have to exercise great will power to wait to decorate my porch until the beginning of October. One of my favorite parts of the Halloween fun is BOO’ing my neighbors.

Each Christmas we decorate a traditional gingerbread house, for Valentines Day we turn it into a Love Shack, and this year we are making a Halloween Haunted House! When I saw the Halloween themed PEEPS® Brand Marshmallows at Target they practically begged me to use them on a Halloween Gingerbread house. As you know, we host a family Halloween party each year and each family brings a craft, game or activity. Well, these are going to be our craft this year! I’ll make one for each family to decorate together.
Along with the perfect PEEPS® I made life super simple by using a Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie Mix to create the house. Let me walk you through it:
If you follow me on Instagram (please do!) you’ve seen me tease about my Halloween front door this year. I took my inspiration from these Elmers Glue Spider Webs I used to decorate my Halloween party a couple of years ago.
Easy Halloween Door Spider Web
Halloween is my favorite holiday and it is almost here! Each year I try to come up with a Halloween door decoration. Last year I made Frankenstein and the year before that I tried out Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas. I’ll be revealing the full door decoration in a couple of weeks, but today I’m sharing the Halloween doorbell decoration I made this week.
I hate when people ring my doorbell because it wakes up my baby, and thought I’d make this creepy set of plaster cast fingers to deter any doorbell ringers this year. Let me show you how I did it.
For $2 I turned a foam pumpkin from Dollar Tree into a tissue holder that fits right in with my fall decor! It literally took me 5 minutes and I love that it can stay out through October and November. I was originally going to make it out of a skull, but couldn’t find the right type of foam for it.
