Spooky Halloween Games for Kids of All Ages
If you’re planning a Halloween party, you’ll want to entertain your guests with some appropriately themed games that are kid and adult-friendly. There are some traditional games like bobbing for apples and smashing a piñata that can easily be themed for the event, as well as some classics like bowling and scavenger hunting that will make for a ‘spooktacular’ time for you and your guests. Both indoor and outdoor games are needed for this type of party because of the time of year it takes place so why not make sure you have some scary online games as a backup too?
Scary Outdoors Games
Halloween can be a scary time for children but playing games with them is a great way of directing that nervous energy into something constructive and fun. Why not start with a spooky piñata, perhaps shaped as a coffin or a jack-o-lantern, and then organize them into teams and send them to play the pumpkin patch stomp. Inflate and fill orange balloons with treats or messy goo and then send the children to stomp on them. They’ll either be treated to a sweet or tricked into smashing a balloon full of mess all over their feet.
Spooky Fun Indoors
Back in the house, you could have a game of pin the spider on the web set up for the littlest children to play. They’ll enjoy wearing a blindfold and trying to win a prize for getting the spider closest to the web. If the kids are scared of spiders, you could set up a game of pin the nose on the witch. A pumpkin patch memory game with paper plates designed with various different pumpkin faces would entertain the pre-school kids too. This game gets them to sit down and concentrate so it’s a good one when you need the children to calm down, perhaps before offering them food.
Spooky Online Games
The older kids at a party normally appreciate a video game to play and there are so many free Halloween themed games online so you’re spoilt for choice. Check them out and find the ones that are appropriate for the crowd arriving at your door for Halloween. Once you’ve picked some that look ideal, make sure you play the games yourself so you can work out which age group they’re appropriate for. Don’t necessarily trust the age ranges advertised on the site. You’re the best judge of what’s appropriate for your kids and their friends.
As well as games, why not offer the children crafts to play? There’s nothing better at Halloween than slime, which you can buy or make yourself. If you’re making it yourself, you get to personalize it a little for your children and maximize the scary theme. You might want to make a green gooey slime, an orange pumpkin mess, or a red vampire slime complete with plastic fangs left over from a Dracula costume. What about making a white slime and then filling it with plastic spiders and bats as that would make a great sensory game for little ones?
Other Craft Ideas
Before the party begins, you can get your kids involved with crafts by asking for their help to create the decorations needed for the party. Skeletons made from Pretzels are a favorite for most kids to make and broomsticks made from licorice are another. Paper princess crowns are always popular and easy to make ahead of the big night. When the party begins, why not set out a table with glue, paper, sticks, fluff balls and pipe cleaners so the kids can make their own fluffy, colorful spiders, witches, vampires or mummies.

12 Not-Too-Spooky Halloween Movies for the Whole Family
Halloween is always a night of creative costumes, delicious candy and fun frights. Of course, kids love the opportunity to challenge their courage by entering haunted houses, swapping spine-chilling stories and watching scary movies . That’s a lot of spookiness for one day, though, and with the wrong film, they may be too frightened to fall asleep at bedtime. (And of course, getting them to bed in time for you to enjoy a proper horror film , like a Stephen King adaptation or classic vampire flick might be an important part of your grown-up Halloween experience!)
Fortunately, there are lots of wonderfully fun — and only slightly creepy — movies out there that kids will enjoy this year. From oldies like Hocus Pocus to newer films like a stellar remake of The Witches , this list has plenty of options that’ll delight much more than they’ll scare. Check out 12 of the best kid-friendly Halloween flicks that make not-too-spooky treats for the entire family!
The Goosebumps book series by R.L. Stine has thrilled kids across the world since the 1990s. The series has been adapted for both TV and film, including a newer franchise for younger generations who aren’t familiar with these classics.
The 2015 flick, aptly titled Goosebumps , stars Jack Black as a fictionalized version of Stine alongside Dylan Minnette, who plays his teenage neighbor. The two team up to take down monsters from the Goosebumps series that have managed to escape from the books and cause chaos in the real world. The film is frightening fun for kids, and there’s enough action to keep parents entertained — especially if they’re former fans of the series.
Hocus Pocus (1993)
A trio of 300-year-old witches (Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker) conjures up a little bit of hocus pocus in this Halloween classic. The 1993 film centers on what happens when the Sanderson sisters are accidentally brought back from the dead on All Hallow’s Eve.
Attempting to recapture their youth, the witches plan to steal the souls of the children of Salem, Massachusetts, so they can live for eternity. Three kids, a talking black cat and, eventually, a friendly zombie have to work together to stop the sinister sisters before it’s too late. Hocus Pocus is certain to put a spell on you this Halloween.
Spirited Away (2001)
If you’re new to the world of Miyazaki , Spirited Away is a great place to start. This classic film from Studio Ghibli follows our protagonist Chihiro, just as she and her parents move to a new town. As they explore, they find what appears to be an abandoned theme park, but Chihiro quickly realizes that she has somehow crossed into the realm of spirits. Oh, and her parents have been turned into pigs. As she learns to navigate the spirit world, and ultimately free herself and her parents, she meets many memorable characters along the way.
The film won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film and became the top-grossing film in Japanese history. Don’t let the strange plot deter you. This film has won the hearts of many, and is a perfect addition to a Halloween lineup for the whole family.
These guys ain’t afraid of no ghosts, probably because the ghosts in this film aren’t too scary. This family-friendly comedy-horror was a smash at the box office in the 80s and has retained its appeal in the decades to follow. Sequels and remakes have attempted to capitalize on the success of the original, but have repeatedly fallen short.
Pop some popcorn and prepare to be entertained as a trio of paranormal exterminators face off against a gluttonous ghost, a pack of demonic dogs, and the iconic Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
Monsters, Inc . is a fun comedy about — what else? — two monsters, Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman), who are the number-one scare team at the scream-processing factory in the town of Monstropolis. The film, released in 2001, follows their misadventures after a human girl named Boo makes her way into their world.
Together, the two have to figure out a way to get Boo home before anyone discovers this unimaginable mistake. Despite their best efforts, which include dressing Boo up as a baby monster, they run into plenty of roadblocks along the way. Kids will probably fall in love with the cuddly Sulley before they feel an ounce of fear during this film!
The Witches (2020)
The Witches (2020) is a fantasy-comedy film based on Roald Dahl’s novel of the same name. This reimagining of the original 1990 film follows an orphaned boy who goes to live with his grandmother in Alabama. After coming across a witch, the boy and his grandmother flee to a hotel to escape her evil clutches. However, the world’s Grand High Witch happens to be staying there — along with disguised, diabolical witches from all over the world who are helping her turn children into mice.
This remake of The Witches is an HBO Max original starring Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer and Stanley Tucci — and it’s certainly a top choice for your family’s Halloween movie marathon.
The 2009 animated film Coraline is based on a dark fantasy novella of the same name. With Dakota Fanning voicing the titular character, the movie follows a young girl who discovers an alternate world that closely mirrors her own — but seemingly much happier. It’s complete with a parallel family that appears, at first sight, to be much better than the one she has.
However, when Coraline’s Other Mother (Teri Hatcher) and the rest of this parallel family try to keep her in their new world forever, she has to fight to make it back home. Kids are sure to find the stop-motion animation and colorful sets of Coraline enchanting.
In the 1988 film, Beetlejuice , a couple dies in a car accident and finds themselves stuck in their former country home instead of a pleasant afterlife. When a new family moves in to the farmhouse, the dead couple tries to scare them away, but to no avail. They enlist the help of the troublemaking poltergeist Beetlejuice, who turns out to be a hazard to everyone involved.
The classic film has an all-star cast that includes Michael Keaton, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin and Winona Ryder. Directed by Tim Burton, the movie offers a comedic twist on a supernatural tale that families will enjoy. Just don’t be surprised if the film’s soundtrack sparks an impromptu dance party.
Starring Kimberly J. Brown and the late, great Debbie Reynolds, Halloweentown is a Disney Channel original movie that premiered in 1998. Today, it’s revered as a classic Halloween film among the now-adults who grew up watching it every year decades ago.
On her 13th birthday, Marnie Cromwell discovers that she’s a witch, as is everyone else in her family. She and her younger siblings sneak off to Halloweentown, where her grandmother lives, to learn more about their family’s history and so Marnie can begin her witch training before it’s too late. The visit goes awry when they discover that an evil force is attempting to take over the town — but with a little magic, Marnie and her siblings can save the day.
The Addams Family (2019)
There have been several reimaginings of the original Addams Family over the years — did you know the first cartoons were created in 1938? — but this animated film from 2019 is an especially fun version for kids. In the movie, Gomez, Morticia and the rest of the Addams clan prepare to welcome relatives for a visit. But when a TV personality attempts to get rid of them, the family has to prove that their creepy and kooky ways are no threat to their idyllic neighborhood.
The Addams Family features the voiceover talents of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Alison Janney, Chloë Grace Moretz and others. If your family can’t get enough of this endearingly macabre group, you’ll be happy to know a sequel was just released — and it’s available to rent on streaming .
It’s time to pass this cornerstone of Halloween weirdness to a new generation! The 1986 film Labyrinth is a cult classic for so many reasons, from its fantastical setting to its magical plot to the fact that it stars the one and only David Bowie — and includes danceworthy original songs from the Starman himself.
The story follows teenager Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) as she travels through an otherworldly maze, solving riddles to rescue her baby brother from Bowie’s Jareth the Goblin King. Most of the film’s main characters are played by puppets from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, which is sure to delight kids (and deliver you an enjoyable dose of nostalgia).
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
You can’t have a kid-approved Halloween movie fest without watching 1993’s The Nightmare Before Christmas . The story follows Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who’s grown bored with the same old scare routine of Halloween each year. When he stumbles upon a door to Christmas Town, he decides to put his own twist on the holiday, causing complete havoc in the process.
The spooky-but-fun Tim Burton film stars Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara and Ken Page. What’s even better about this classic is that it doubles as a Halloween and Christmas movie — and there’s no better time of year to get into the holiday spirit!

The BEST Free Canva Fonts for Halloween
When choosing the best font for your project, you want to consider your purpose, space, and readability. Some Canva fonts are harder to read than others – while others are more “Halloween-esque” than the others. I like to curate lists that give a little bit of everything so you have a better chance of finding what you need and this list of Canva Fonts for Halloween is no different!
Looking for a different style or season of Canva or design fonts? Look through our full collection of fonts here.
Now, let’s take a look at the BEST free Canva fonts you can use for your craft or design projects this upcoming Halloween season:
Jeepers is probably the go-to Canva font when you want to design something spooky or Halloween-esque. It fits easily in most designs and has that traditional Halloween look. Personally, it has a great blogger aesthetic as a font that features all caps versus the ones with lowercase letters.
#2. IM Fell
IM Fell is a spooky Canva font that gives me “horror novel” vibes. I like that it’s a subtle spooky/creepy style rather than one as obvious as Jeepers or some of the others coming up on the list. This font does have both lowercase and uppercase letters in its’ design, which allows it to be more adaptable for different projects.
I truly love the painted feel of the Abys font. It makes me think of a haunted house, which is ideal for Halloween season. It’s not overdone or gaudy, nor is it hard to read which can be a common issue in display fonts. This font does lack lowercase letters, so keep it in mind before choosing it for your design.
#4. Max Somsin
It’s long letters make it perfect for small and tall design spaces , the font Max Somsin is a good choice for a not-so-obvious Halloween font. It’s more subtle than other display fonts, but it still give a spooky and chilling style. This Canva Halloween font does have both uppercase and lowercase letters, but has an awkward size which may need to be constantly adjusted during use.
Another font that has a painted look like Abys, the Kust free Canva font is another great option for Halloween. The Kust font is like a mix between Jeepers, Abys, and Max Somsin – a little messy, but thats what makes it work! It might be the perfect aesthetic that you’re looking for. This is another font that has all caps and it does have a few oddly sized letters that can make placement difficult.
Barriecito is a Canva font that I recently discovered and absolutely love for the fall holiday season. It resembles ransom note letters as seen in movies! It’s still a creepy font, but in a different way versus the others. It’s not a font that screams scary, but one that can be used to convey other spooky themes in your projects!
I almost skipped over the Kamorebi font on Canva, but I felt it perfectly suits the idea of “modern horror” as a font. I would picture this as a nice font to use for your subtle Halloween tee designs or even a Halloween printable for your personal use or for your little ones.
#8. Butcherman Caps
When I picture a font for horror movies, this is the one. The Butcherman Caps Canva font is another classically Halloween spooky font to use. While it does not have lowercase letters, all the uppercase letters are evenly sized. This makes it easier to create designs and space your words evenly.
The Canva font Moonlight almost doesn’t match our theme of spooky scary, but it stills feels very much classically cute Halloween. Since I like to strive for diversity, I didn’t want to skip over this perfect option for the entire fall season. This font has both uppercase and lowercase letters in its’ design.
#10. Distillery Display
To me, the Distillery Display font in Canva is a combination between The Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus. If you’re looking for a good font to use for quotes, this one is it. This is another font that is only all caps and does not have a lowercase letter option.
#11. Sensa Sans
Last, but not least on the list is Sansa Sans. This Canva font is a clean option for a spooky design. While it doesn’t have the same immediate effect as Jeepers or Butcherman Caps, the sketch style of the letters and all-caps design makes it a great option for scary ghost-like designs.

Don’t limit yourself to the fonts just on Canva! Actually, if you’re a business owner,. you might not want to even use Canva fonts at all in your designs! I highly recommend adventuring out and looking at some of the Halloween and horror fonts available on Etsy.

Halloween parties are not complete without horror-themed designs or creations. I’m a horror enthusiast and have organized a lot of these projects in the past including a horror film festival.
One of the elements that usually make my creations stand out and have a supernatural undertone is the typography. And that’s one of the things you should pay attention to if you’re organizing a similar event.
You should use the right font to infuse an air of spookiness into your creations. For those of us who are not professional designers, we can always rely on Canva to design our works.
The best part is that this popular online design platform offers a treasure trove of hauntingly beautiful fonts that will give your project an eerie feeling. Spooky Fonts on Canva include Rubik Beastly, Jeepers, Balmy, Kawit, and Savage.

If you’re looking for a refined yet haunting Canva font for your next design, Balmy is a great option. Boris Garic noted that he created the font for everything crunchy. He aimed to have a font that was easy to read with a bold look and vintage feel.
At first glance, you’ll notice that this font is designed with a brush pen on paper giving it a home-made feel. I love the delicate balance between elegance and darkness.
You don’t get such a lovely combination often. Balmy’s elongated letterforms have intricate details and a Gothic aesthetic that makes them both captivating and spine-chilling.
That is to say, when you use this font in your Canva designs, it adds an air of mystery and sophistication to them, enthralling your audience.
Another beautiful feature I love about this font is that it is incredibly versatile. You can use it in different design scenarios whether you’re creating a Halloween party invitation, horror movie poster, or Gothic-themed social media graphics.

The Savage font on Canva surely embodies a sinister and distorted aesthetic which is perfect for conveying a supernatural feel. It’s a popular font among horror enthusiasts.
The first attribute that captured my attention when I stumbled on this font was its jagged edges, sharp corners, and uneven strokes. I love how it creates an unsettling visual impact which is basically what every horror-themed event should do.
You want your audience to shiver at the sight of the designs. Savage perfectly mirrors the disarray and chaos often associated with horror.
This font will particularly work well for horror film posters, book covers, film festivals, or other promotional materials in the genre. Also, Savage only comes in caps and has an eerie visual hierarchy and emphasis.
You can use the font to draw the audience’s eye to the headline, title, or any text that requires a sinister emphasis. Its distorted look will heighten the sense of dread.
Additionally, you should consider pairing this font with other dark but Gothic typefaces. I do this in my designs and the outcome is usually beautiful. It’s interesting to juxtapose terror and beauty.
Overall, aside from designing horror-themed projects, you can use the Savage font to design creepy quotes or graphics to entice and intrigue your viewers on social media. Because of the font’s sense of dread, your audience will be compelled to engage with your posts.

If you want a font that will convey a sense of horror, fear, or suspense to your audience while still leaving a lasting impression, then you should try out the Kawit font on Canva. At first glance, you’ll notice that this font was intentionally crafted to create an unsettling and eerie atmosphere.
I love that the letters have jagged edges and distorted forms. This irregularity adds an extra layer of chaos, creepiness, and instability. Your audience will surely feel unsettled viewing a design created with this font.
Another great thing about Kawit font is that it is highly eligible and it’s also suitable for headlines, titles, and even the body of the text. I love that the font captures the essence of darkness as it draws influence from elements like haunted houses and Gothic imagery.

You should use this font for your next Halloween-themed projects or haunted house event promotions. As long as you want a design with a chilling and spooky touch, the Jingleberry font is a perfect option.
However, I really love the font’s versatility. You can use it for other designs that are not horror-themed. Interestingly, the font doesn’t come in all caps meaning that you can confidently use it in the body of your text.
All in all, make sure that you choose a background color that complements the font’s horror aesthetic. You can go for darker colors such as black or gray. Also, feel free to pair it with other fonts and see the result you’ll arrive at.

From the name alone, you can already guess how the font looks. The “Blood Drip” attached to the name signifies that the font appears as though it’s formed by blood oozing and dripping down the letters.
Designed by Chandan Acharja, the visual appearance of the font deliberately mimics the gruesome and horrifying effects of bloodstains. So, if the theme of your next horror party is vampire or zombie-themed, don’t hesitate to use this font.
At first glance, your audience is going to be terrified and unsettled. But the most important thing is that they will be immersed in the design.
Another important fact to note is that because of the font’s blood-dripping aesthetic, it’s best to use it against a red background if the text color is black or a black background if the text color is red.
This will help to bring your gory and terrifying vision to life.

The Abys font looks like it’s handpainted. It was developed by Ioan J. Ajalfa and is characterized by intricate and ornate letterforms.
Though this font is a great brush typeface, it also creates an unsettling and chaotic visual effect. And that’s because the letters are irregular and distorted.
Aside from that, its exaggerated curves and elaborate details give it a spooky and macabre appearance. This font is highly legible and can be used for short headlines, titles, or text that doesn’t require much reading.
That is to say, the font’s primary aim is to capture attention and convey a sense of fear and unease.

Inlander Texture is so popular on Canva even though you’re not using the paid version of the platform. In using this font, you’re free to customize the size, and color to suit your text needs.
Since the font comes in all caps, it’s best to apply it to headings and titles. Finally, don’t forget to use it on a dark or spooky background.

I like to believe that the Edo font on Canva was inspired by traditional Japanese horror or supernatural themes, especially during the Edo period between 1603 – 1868.
If it inclines the traditional horror elements from that period, it only makes sense that the font is named Edo and that it can be used for spooky designs.
What I find most interesting about this font is that it draws its aesthetic from the art and culture of that era. I also love that the font is super legible and also creates a sense of unease, adding a bit of spookiness and mystery to the atmosphere of any design or project.
Overall, you should go for this font if you want to create an event that captures Japanese folklore and horror traditions.

Butcherman is another spooky font on Canva you should try out. The name alone already conveys a horrific and gruesome feel. For clearer emphasis, I’d say that this font is zombified.
Like a butcher, the font has been hacked, chopped, and left for dead but still crawling nevertheless. If your next Halloween party is zombie-themed, then this font is the perfect fit for your designs.
Also, note that it is an all-caps font meaning that it can only be used as headings and titles. Finally, you should consider combining the font with other elements like blood splatters, creepy illustrations, or dripping textures, and you are on your way to creating a chilling, spooky experience for your audience.
Will they enjoy the thrill of this frightful and mysterious design? Most definitely!

Want to evoke a sense of horror and creepiness in your audience? The Jeepers font is your best bet. At first glance, it’s very obvious that the font was primarily designed for wild occasions and one of them is a horror-themed party, book, or movie poster.
A lot of designers use this font to create an eerie and chilling atmosphere. Looking at how the letters are uneven and have varying line thickness and irregular shapes says a lot about its unsettling and spooky feel.
I really love that the font has a strong visual impact because of its unique and unsettling aesthetic. It will surely add a layer of darkness and edginess to your work.

The Rubik Beastly font is another font designed to evoke a sense of horror and intensity. As you can see, the letterforms feature sharp thorn-like edges, and bold and dramatic angles, all contributing to its overall eerie and beast-like appearance.
This font will make more sense if the party, book, or film is about werewolves and vampires. It has a menacing look that can pass.
