They are super easy to prepare for and inexpensive to make. That’s right up my alley!
There are several sets of these games. There is this cute little Frankenstein, a pumpkin, a witch, and a ghost.
Each comes in 2 versions — one where you only need one dice and one where you use two.
Use the one dice version for kids that are learning to count. Use the two dice version for kids that are learning to add.
The nice thing about these games is that adults can easily play along with kids because it’s all a matter of luck in what you roll. Kids and adults are all on the same level.
Here are pictures of the other games so that you can get an idea of what they look like.
Here’s the little ghost.
Here is how you play the dice games.
Print up a copy of the game and give to each player. If you are using the game with numbers 1-12 use the ‘doubles’ version of the dice and use two dice.
Select someone to be the first player.
That person rolls the dice. She crosses off the paper the number that she rolled. Let’s say she rolled a two. She looks at her sheet, finds a number two, and puts an X through it.
The player to her left rolls the dice and crosses the number off her paper that she rolled.
As play continues, it gets a little tricky. Say that you rolled a three but all of the threes on your paper are already crossed off.
Sorry Charlie! Too bad. You don’t get to cross anything off.
And, that is the end of your turn. Pass the dice to the next person.
Play continues until someone has all of the numbers crossed off their sheet. The first person to cross out all of their numbers is the winner.

I was on the Fox 13 TV show called The Place and demonstrated several Halloween treats that don’t require any baking. They would be easy treats to fix and serve at your Halloween party with your grandkids!
Hope your family Halloween party is tons of fun.
