Halloween Games

Devil's Gate Game

Kids love this fast-paced game. This game is also a great way to include a large number of children.

Play this game outside. Divide the players into two teams, and have each team stand about 50 feet apart, arms linked.

The first team starts the game by yelling, "Devil, Devil, get me out of this place!" The second team picks a child from the first team by yelling, for example, "Billy, Billy, it's your turn to run the race!" Billy must then run across the field and try to break the second team's chain. If he breaks through, he can go back to his team. If he doesn't, he must join the other team. The last person to join a chain is the winner.

In our next section, we'll show you our Halloween twist on the classic Wheelbarrow game.
