Boo-Ready Bingo: This simple do-it-yourself Halloween game can be sweet or spooky depending on your party's theme and children's ages. Use a computer to print cards that feature words or images in a 5x5 grid; remember to add, subtract, and rearrange what is in the grid on each child's card. The children can use crayons to mark off the various spaces as you draw the corresponding words or images from a hat.

Spook-tastic Scavenger Hunt: Start this Halloween-theme scavenger hunt with a riddle and lead kids through a series of clues that will help them find a hidden treasure. When coming up with clues, consider the ages of the kids -- a younger crowd will fare better with simple and direct clues, while older kids will love more challenging ones. If you're hosting a Halloween party for a mix of ages, pair younger kids with older ones and vary the difficulty of the clues.
