Another fun game is Halloween Concentration, in which children take turns trying to match pairs of Halloween shapes, such as witches, spider webs and haunted houses, hidden on the backs of cards. A child turns two cards over revealing the pictures on the other side. If they match, she keeps them and turns over two more. If they do not match, she turns them back over and tries to remember where the pictures are located. The game continues until the board is clear, and the child with the most cards wins a prize.

Pass the Pumpkin is similar to Musical Chairs or Hot Potato. Children sit in a circle and pass a pumpkin around while an adult plays music. When the grownup stops the music, the child holding the pumpkin is out. The game continues until there is one child left who wins a prize.
