Need a last minute Halloween game for your class party? This game can be adapted for kids of ALL ages.
How to Play Musical Ghosts & Ghost Cupcake Walk
Simply print out several ghost templates on cardstock, one for each child playing the game. Write a number on each ghost. Tape the ghosts to the floor in a circle. Play some Halloween music while the children walk around the ghosts. When the music stops, the children step on a ghost. Pick a number. The child standing on that number gets a prize. Repeat. (Laminate your ghosts for years of use).
This game works great for older children too. Use it as a cupcake walk. Instead of writing numbers on the ghosts, write a math problem. Draw out the answer to a problem when the music stops. The children then have to figure out if the math problem they are standing on is a match to the answer drawn. If they get it right they get a cupcake. Repeat.
This is a fun math game any time of year!
Cut out your ghosts. Write numbers or math problems on them. Laminate.
Make your calling cards with the same numbers or answers to the math problems. Place them in a basket or a box to draw from.
The kids love these games!! Have fun!
