As an addition to, or perhaps instead of trick-or-treating, kids can enjoy Halloween by playing outdoor games.

In addition, games designed especially for the spookiest night of the year add to the fun.
Americans spent an average of $56 each on Halloween costumes, candy and decorations in 2009, according to a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation.
