Halloween Trick or Treat Game

Halloween Trick or Treat Game

This bright and colourful game is a real treat (or trick) for kids Halloween parties. The rules are super simple – each player takes it in turns to pull a Halloween character off the game board to reveal if they’ve won a Trick or a Treat…whatever the trick or treat is we shall leave up to you!

The game is made using different coloured papers cut and stuck together, accompanying these instructions are coloured versions of each character as well as the templates – so if you don’t have time to get super creative you can simply print the coloured versions out onto thin card and away you go!  Plus, the black and white out line templates are perfect for children to colour in so you could always use them as the game pieces.

To make the coloured card version like in the pictures you will need:

  • VELCRO® Brand Stick On Coins 16mm white (1 hook and loop coins set per template)
  • Various colours of thin card
  • Scissors or craft knife with a cutting mat
  • Glue
  • Sheet of thick card – roughly A2 in size
  • Optional – An old picture frame (if you do use a picture frame then make sure your thick card fits in it) 
  • A set of templates which you can download here

1. Print out the character templates. Take one of the characters and cut out all the template pieces. Draw around the templates on to the relevant colours of card and then cut out.
