You've Been Ghosted!
This is a fun game to play before Halloween. Have children help you fill up a gift bag or small paper lunch bag with Halloween treats. Add anything related to Halloween into the bags including: Halloween candy, little plastic spiders, and/or rubber Halloween characters. Each bag must include a paper ghost, so have your charges cut out the paper ghost to put in each bag.
Attach a letter on the outside of the paper bag or gift bag that reads:
Late last night, we left you a treat.
The tradition is fun, one we hope you'll repeat.
Take the ghost and pin it on your door,
to let others know, need ghosted no more.
Now it's your duty to pass on this surprise,
to two more families, we must advise.
Gather some treats and deliver them soon,
within two nights, under the light of the moon.
Include a ghost with each package you give,
along with this poem for the tradition to live.
Have you ever tried this cute game with the children's friends or neighbors? Do you have other games to play with children before Halloween?
