Halloween Riddles in a caldron!

If he gets a right match, everyone else in the group has to give him a treat = sweet and if he doesn't get he can choose between giving all students a treat or go for the TRICK!!!

Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe
Add a ghoulish touch to a classic game with these ideas for Halloween tic-tac-toe games. It's always a thrill to cut out scary Halloween shapes to use as the playing pieces. Check out the illustration below.

Spider Web

Ask the kids to stand in a circle and give a ball of yarn to a player. He should take a piece of the yarn and throw it to someone else in the circle. This cycle continues until a spider web is created. This is amongst the popular fun Halloween games for kids. Variation: to make the activity more challenging the teacher can play a song while they are throwing the yarn to make the spider web and every time the song stops they have to say a word related to Halloween or make a witch scary laughter!!
