Kid Friendly Halloween Mystery Bag

| | |

Some of my earliest memories from Halloween include attending a church Halloween party and sticking my hand into a Halloween Mystery Bags and feeling peeled grapes, cooked pasta and pumpkin guts.

Each year we have a family Halloween party and this year I wanted to create some Halloween Mystery Bags without the mess and gore of the ones from my childhood. You probably have most of these items in your home already which makes this game super easy! Plus their hands won’t get all goopy from peeled tomatoes and raisins covered in jelly.

To make it even easier, I’ve created a free printable Halloween Mystery Bag document. They print in black and white and 2-per page which means you don’t need a fancy printer. If you did want to get fancy, you could print them onto orange paper which would make them really cute!

I placed each item in a brown paper lunch sack and then added a number backed by some cute Halloween scrapbook paper.

The instructions are simple. Have each child place their hand inside each bag without looking. Then they write the bag number next to the item they think it matches with. For our party, I’m going to give them a small piece of candy for each one they get correct.
