Halloween Minute to Win It Games:
Here are a bunch of ideas, just pick and choose what works for you!
Spider Catch Minute to Win It Game:
- Plastic spiders or spider rings
- Bowls or plates
This game is super simple. Each player has a pile of spiders and a pair of chopsticks. Set up one bowl or plate with spiders on it and then another a little ways away (depending on how much space you have and how hard you want to make it).
Each player has 1 minute to move as many spiders as they can from one plate to the other using just the chopsticks. The player that moves the most spiders wins! (They may have to get creative with the chopsticks if they aren’t able to use them very well. This will add to the fun!)
Halloween Scramble Game:
- One Halloween Scramble Game Board for each player
- Pen or pencil for each player
This one is SUPER simple. Give the players one minute to make as many words as they can from the word Halloween by scrambling the letters in any order they want (for example, hello or we). The only rules are they’ve got to be real words and they can use only the letters in Halloween and can only use each letter as many times as it’s in the word Halloween (so 2 l’s and 2 e’s but 1 of each other letter). The person with the most words at the end of one minute wins.
Or, for another twist on this (particularly for older kids or adults), have them read their words aloud and they have to cross off any words that someone else in the group has. This way the person with the most creative words ends up winning!
Candy Corn Shuffle Minute to Win It Game:
- Straws (plastic are likely to work best)
- Candy corn
This one is similar to the spider one mentioned above. Fill a plate with candy corn (or just use a tabletop). Players have one minute to suck through the straw to pick up a candy corn and move it from one place to another specified place in one minute. The player who moves the most wins! (And gets to eat candy corn…yum!)
Witch Hat Toss:
- Witch hat (can be a real one that you’d wear or a decoration
- Rings (you could get glow sticks for this and put two together into a ring)
Place the witch hat on the floor and then make a line on the floor a ways from the hat (how far apart you put these is going to depend on how old your players are and how hard you want to make it). Players then toss the rings and try to loop them on the top of the witch hat. The player that gets the most around the witch hat in one minute wins!
For a more difficult twist, you could blindfold them or make them use their non-dominant hand.
I Want Candy Race:
- Bag of candy (or multiple depending on how many players you will have)
Players have 1 minute to unwrap as many candies as they can…but the trick is, they can only use one hand! The player who unwraps the most candy during that time wins!
Make a Mummy Minute to Win it Game:
- Toilet paper rolls
Divide the players into small teams of 2-3 people. Give them each 2 rolls of toilet paper. One person is the mummy and the others have to roll them up in the toilet paper as fast as possible. The first ones done win!
Stack the Gourds Game:
- Small pumpkins (you know-these tiny ones that are about hand-sized that you can find around Halloween. Or you can get fake ones like we did from the dollar store)
Give each player or team of players (2-3) people a pile of small pumpkins and they have 1 minute to stack as many as they can without having them fall over. The trick….they can’t use their hands! They will have to get creative to do this (feet, elbows) and it will get a little tricky! Whoever can stack the most wins!
Have FUN playing these Halloween minute to win it games!
