1. Classic Ghost: Sometimes, the classics are the best. A classic ghost costume is easy to make with an old white bedsheet. Simply cut out holes for the eyes and let it drape over your child. They can add a little spookiness with ghostly makeup. It's a timeless costume that never goes out of style.

2. Superhero: Superhero costumes are always a hit with kids. Whether they choose to be Superman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, or any other superhero, these costumes empower kids and let them live out their heroic fantasies. You can easily find superhero costumes at costume stores or make one at home with a little DIY effort.

3. Magical Unicorn: Unicorns are a whimsical and popular choice for kids. Dress your child in a unicorn onesie or a pastel-colored outfit. Add a unicorn horn headband, some colorful face paint, and a sparkly tail. This costume allows kids to embrace their inner magic and be the star of the Halloween parade.

From classic choices like witches and pirates to trendy options like pop culture icons, the possibilities are endless. Don't forget the DIY touch to make the costumes extra special.

1. Mummy Hot Dogs: Turn ordinary hot dogs into spooky mummies. Wrap crescent roll dough strips around the hot dogs, leaving a small gap near the top for the mummy's "eyes." Bake them until golden brown. Then, add two small dots of ketchup or mustard for the eyes. These mummy hot dogs are not only adorable but also delicious.

2. Monster Eyeball Punch: Create a chilling punch bowl by making "Monster Eyeball Punch." Fill a large punch bowl with a mixture of fruit punch, lemon-lime soda, or a clear beverage. Add round scoops of sherbet ice cream to resemble "eyeballs." For an extra touch, place gummy candy eyeballs on top. It's a fun and refreshing drink for the little monsters.

3. Witch's Broomstick Snacks: Craft witch's broomstick snacks using pretzel sticks and string cheese. Cut the string cheese into thin strips and make small cuts at the end to resemble broom bristles. Insert a pretzel stick into the cheese to create a broomstick handle. These tasty treats are a perfect combination of sweet and savory and are great for little witches and wizards.

Mummify hotdogs, create eerie eyeball punches or whip up some savory spider sandwiches. These treats will leave your little monsters howling for more. Set your treats on a tablescape to remember with a deeply rich 120-round black tablecloth. Pair them with some orange table runners or linen napkins for a pop of Halloween color.

Entertaining Halloween Party Games for Kids

Get the spooky fun started with Halloween party games for kids designed especially for them. From a ghoulish treasure hunt to pumpkin bowling and a mummy wrap contest, there are plenty of engaging activities to keep the youngsters entertained. 

1. Pumpkin Bowling: Create your bowling alley using mini pumpkins as pins and a small, soft ball as the bowling ball. Set the "pins" up at the end of a hallway or on a flat surface. Let the kids take turns rolling the ball to knock down the pumpkins. You can even paint spooky faces on the pumpkins for extra Halloween flair.

2. Mummy Wrap Contest: Divide the kids into pairs or small teams. Provide each team with a couple of rolls of toilet paper. One child becomes the mummy, while the others have to wrap them in toilet paper to create the best mummy costume. The team that makes the spookiest mummy in a set time wins a prize. This game encourages creativity and teamwork.

3. Halloween Scavenger Hunt: Organize a Halloween-themed scavenger hunt in your yard or around your home. Create a list of Halloween items or toys hidden in various locations. Provide the kids with a list and a bag, and let them search for the items. To make it even more exciting, give them flashlights if you're playing in the dark. The first one or team to find all the items wins a treat.

These games are sure to create memories at your Halloween kids' party that will last longer than their Halloween candy stash.
