Halloween Questions Trivia for Kids

We love Halloween in my family. Each year we can’t wait to hang up some ghosts and cobwebs around the house and pick out what our costumes are going to be. 

I’m always looking for great Halloween activities to add to the festivities to make that fun last even longer. We can’t get enough of Halloween Charades, and my little ones love Halloween matching!

Now that my kids are getting interested in Trivia questions, I thought some Halloween trivia would be the perfect addition to our Halloween traditions.

How to Play Trivia With Kids

Simple, fun, no-prep activities are a mom’s best friend, and Halloween Trivia for Kids is no exception. All you need to play is my list of Halloween Trivia for Kids and some excited participants. 

Simply read the questions and try to answer them correctly! You could take turns reading the questions or designate a “host” to read all the questions. 

Keep score and compete for a prize (maybe first dibs on a Halloween treat!), or just play for fun without worrying about a score. If you have enough people, you could even split into two teams and compete against each other. 

When to Play Halloween Trivia for Kids

When is the best time to play trivia games? Anytime! That’s the great thing about it. 

You could carry around the list in your purse so it’s ready when you need some quick entertainment. Or you could make a big night out of it with your family and play at home. 

I am a big fan of having a special dinner on Halloween night, and playing trivia would be the perfect activity for the kids to play while they are eagerly waiting for trick-or-treating time.

Whenever you choose to play, your kids are sure to want to play again! Be sure to check out our other trivia games like animal trivia for kids, Christmas trivia for kids, or even Harry Potter Trivia questions!
