Here is what you’ll need for this game…

(teams of 4 or more) 

  • A ball of yarn
  • A skeleton bone – short skeleton bones will make the level of the game more difficult. I used a 2 foot long plastic skeleton bone

Here’s how you’ll need to set up for this game…

Halloween Game for kids

  • You can choose whether or not to have the teams stand in a row or sit down
  • *if you want them to sit, you’ll have to line up chairs for the teams in rows
  • For each team – attach a plastic skeleton bone to a ball of yarn by tying a knot on one end of the bone
  • Set the ball of yarn and bone next to the beginning player, or if they are standing up, hand the bone to the first player
  • When you are ready for the players to go, yell go and the kids on both teams should…

Halloween Game for teens

  • starting with the first player, slide the skeleton bone up one sleeve of their arm, across and down their other sleeve
  • Then hand it off to the next player to do the same until all kids or teens are connected by yarn 

Winning the Halloween Game!

  • The first team successfully connected with the yarn with the last player holding the skeleton bone is the winner


How long will the game last?

  • The more kids you have on a team, the longer the game will take to complete. It took my 4 kids roughly 55 seconds {the perfect amount of time for a Minute to Win It Game} to connect everyone with the yarn. If they had long sleeves on or a shorter bone, it would probably take a little longer.
