Because of Halloween's popularity with kids and adults alike, there are a lot of websites with a Halloween theme. Today's focus is on interactive Halloween games, although many of this week's picks also have other free Halloween goodies such as e-cards, screensavers, and printable crafts. Enjoy!
To celebrate their "absolutely most way-favorite time of year," Ben & Jerry have created a Halloween playground of games and crafts. Interactive games are found in both obvious places (Halloween Games) and not-so-obvious ones (such as the Interactive Haunted House listed in the Flavor Graveyard.) There's also a Ben & Jerry Graveyard Screensaver, and a nice collection of printable crafts, mazes, coloring pages and word searches. Check out the print-and-cut skeleton with movable arms and legs that you can put together with brass fasteners.
In addition to the usual jigsaw, memory, and slider puzzles, Free Halloween has two really fun games you won't find on any of the other Halloween sites. Sokoban is an addictive Japanese strategy game played by pushing characters around the board. Mah Jong, played by finding the matching pictures, is an online variation of the Chinese board game frequently associated with middle-age Jewish women. See "From Ningbo to Hoboken". Because neither requires reading, they can be enjoyed by all ages.
