Physical Games for a School Halloween Party in the Classroom

When planning a party in the classroom, Halloween party coordinators will want to keep everything orderly so things don’t get out of hand! Run your ideas by the teacher first, in case she has any other ideas or doesn’t want you to include one of the activities.

    Pumpkin Patch

    Now, if you are looking for Halloween party planning ideas for a Halloween school carnival, I’ll tell you about ours. It is a highlight of the school year, and not only for the school, but an anticipated event without our community.

    At our school, each grade hosts a particular activity, providing the volunteers to run it. For example, the first grade provides volunteers for the bouncy house, the 2nd grade provides volunteers for the face-painting station, etc. Families pay admission (either thru tickets, or a one-time fee to cover all activities) and the admissions proceeds cover the cost of any activities that must be rented. In addition we offer a bake sale and concessions.

    Every year we have the same things at our carnival, but that is OK. Why change a good thing? Some of the favorite things at our school carnival are...

  • Game booths (scroll down for more details)
  • Bouncy House
  • Inflatable Obstacle Course
  • Rock Climbing Wall
  • Silly String fight area
  • Tattoo Station and/or face painting station
  • Cake Walk (see “Spooky Walk” below)
  • Photo booths
  • Hair Spray station – where your hair can get sprayed with purple, blue, yellow (any color you can imagine) hair spray
  • Bake sale booth
  • Cotton Candy booth
  • Snow Cone booth
  • And many more!
