Frog in the Cauldron

How to play

Grab your buckets and fill them with slime or sludge, and then line up a table or lay on the ground. The students can then take it in turns to throw a frog (or a ball) and try and get it in the bucket. When they get it in there they have to put their hand in the slime, and maybe even put extra prizes in there too. This Halloween activity is great for practicing throwing skills.

What time is it Mr Werewolf?

How to play

This is a playground classic but with a Halloween twist. The designated ‘Werewolf’ stands with their back to the class. The players then shout out; ‘What time is it Mr Werewolf?’. They turn and answers with a time. They then move the steps forward relating to the time. The players then get closer and closer to Mr Werewolf, until they howl and shout Halloween Time. To turn players into another Werewolf they must be hit with a dodgeball. Eventually there will be more and more wolves.
