Halloween is upon us and it’s time to get spooky! We’ve thrown together some fun ideas that will make hosting a Halloween party for kids easy for any mummy or daddy.

Trick or Treat, Give Me Something Good to Eat

The number one reason why kids love Halloween? The candy! A simple yet delicious, holiday-inspired snack you could make for your little ones is “witches brooms”.  They require no baking; just assemble pretzel sticks into upside down Mini Reese’s Cups and you’re done!

Another wickedly tasty treat you can make is Halloween candy bark, dyed green with sour worms and gummy eyeballs mixed in; creepy and delicious!

If you’d rather stay out of the kitchen completely, stuff a Halloween piñata, such as a Frankenstein, ghost, or a black cat.

Witch Crafts

Besides treats, we’ve got some tricks that’ll make your party stand out.  The “guess how many candycorn are in the jar” game is over done.  For a unique activity, make popsicle stick haunted houses.  You can use black, purple, and grey paints for an eerie color scheme and adorn it with ghosts and pumpkin cut outs.

The kiddos are also going to need something to hold all that candy in! Why use store-bought bags when you can make personalized ones? Use canvas totes or brown paper bags, some paint, and other stickers and stamps to create boo-tiful trick or treat bags.

Make your party frightfully fun by bringing in a kid-friendly fortune teller or psychic to provide some in-house entertainment for all the guests!

Spooktakular Soirée

Take advantage of the tons of free printables available online and custom design your very own Halloween party invites. While you’re at it, download some photo prop printouts, such as bat eyes, witches, and monsters, to make your event hauntingly memorable with a photo booth. For a longer-lasting disguise, book a face painter who can sit down with each guest and match designs with their costumes.

Lastly, your party would be incomplete without a scary-good playlist. You could find pre-made Halloween themed playlists online or leave it up to the professionals and hire a DJ.
