Why play a Halloween printable game?
This free printable Halloween game is really super easy to make and play! It can be played with preschool through early elementary. It might seem super easy for adults and older kids but the young ones will love it!
Playing games is also good for brain development. Games require us to be creative when working to solve problems, see patterns or figure out puzzles. This can help young children when it comes to developing their problem-solving skills in later life.
This game can help teach kids about early mathematical concepts. Considering the number they need to complete a web and taking turns with other players is definitely a step towards learning about number sense.
Playing games together is a great way to bond with your child and provide them with an opportunity for peer interaction with other kids in the class or at home. Games, like this Halloween Dice Game, that are easy to understand will make this possible even for younger children.
The best reason to play this Halloween printable game? Your kids or students will have FUN!

Step One. To accommodate as many children as possible, you’ll need to print off enough free printable Halloween Dice Game sheets for each of them. I really like the quality of this cardstock! Each of them doesn’t have to roll the die (unless there are more than six kids) but they will all require a spider-web scorecard.
Step Two. Make the Halloween character die from cardstock by cutting, taping, and folding (helpful if you score the edges with a pen!) Depending on your child’s age, this part may or may not need assistance. Give one scorekeeper spider web card to each child.
Step Three. To play, have each child pick a Halloween character as their own and then mark a line on the spider web every time that character is rolled. To be the winner, you must first complete the entire web. If there are six or fewer children playing, you may roll one die for the entire group. If you have more, let each kid make and roll their own die. The first one to roll enough of their character to fill the entire web wins.
That’s all there is to it! We had a lot of fun picking our characters and played many rounds of this game in one sitting with my kids! Instead of printing out the scorecard, again and again, I had them make new lines slightly higher than the original ones. They ended up with a really intricate spider web!
