Simple Halloween Games for Family Night

It's the beginning of October, so for family night this week I've gathered a few simple games with minimal supplies for a festive family night to kick of the Halloween season!

The first game we played was this adorable Roll a Pumpkin game I found over on the Happy Home Fairy blog. Click here to visit her site and get a free printable for your family night.

I love how easy this is to get going. All it takes are a few dice that you probably have in a game, paper, and pencil. We started playing while we waited for our pizza to cook, and I was surprised at how long it took to play. One game lasted a while

The game was a big hit-the kids got up the next morning asking to play it again!

We also played this cute pumpkin bowling game I found over on who-arted? Another games that's easy to put together with minimal supplies. Our local pumpkin patch just opened so we had a few mini pumpkins on hand to use as our bowling "ball."

This can also be done with toilet paper rolls (via idigPinterest). It's totally versatile and easy to do with whatever you've got on hand!

The last game I had for us to do was a fun game of Halloween charades. My kids are younger, so I decided to give them each a printable of the different choices to help them try to figure out what we might be acting out. You can get a free printable for the charades game here.

This was actually more than we could do in one night! Each game took longer than I anticipated because the kids wanted to play again and again, so these could easily be used for two family nights instead of one. 

Our family night snack this week was these Pumpkin Spice snowball cookies. One of my daughters doesn't love pumpkin spice, but I told her she needs to get ready because it is pumpkin spice and everything nice season! I'm planning to enjoy all the pumpkin spice desserts I can get away with this month!

Did you try any of these games? If so comment below and let me know what was your family's favorite!
