Are you ready for a spooktacular time? Halloween is just around the corner, and that means it's time to start planning a kids' Halloween party that's full of fun and frights.
Here are the top five things that make these parties a real treat for the little ones.
1. Creative Costumes
One of the best things about a kids' Halloween party is the chance to dress up in amazing costumes. From adorable pumpkins to spooky ghosts, kids love to show off their creative outfits. Make sure to have a costume contest with simple prizes to make it even more exciting
2. Spooky Halloween Party Decoration Ideas
Transform your home into a haunted mansion with simple decorations. Hang up paper bats, create ghostly sheets, and carve goofy jack-o'-lanterns. The little ghouls and goblins will be delighted by the eerie atmosphere you've created.
3. Fun And Easy Halloween Games For Kids
What's a spooky party without some fun Halloween games? Keep it simple with classics like bobbing for apples, pin the tail on the black cat, and a mummy-wrapping contest. These games are easy to set up and will keep the kids entertained for hours.
4. Tasty Food Ideas For Halloween Party
Halloween is all about the treats, and kids can't get enough of them. Serve up some delicious and simple goodies like peanut butter and jelly "eyeballs," monster cookies, and a cauldron of punch. You can even make a DIY candy bar where kids can fill their goodie bags with their favorite sweets.
What's Halloween without some trick-or-treating? After all the fun at the party, take the kids out to the neighborhood for some candy collecting. Make sure to keep them safe by accompanying them and checking their candy haul at the end.
These Halloween activities for kids should be full of creative costumes, spooky decorations, fun games, tasty treats, and trick-or-treating adventures. Keep it simple, and you're sure to host a Halloween party that the little monsters will remember for years to come.
Fun Themes And Halloween Party Ideas For Kids
Vampires, werewolves, zombies – oh my! With Halloween right around the corner, it may be the perfect time to set up a spooky party for the little ones in your life. Kids' Halloween parties are fun for everyone for a number of reasons. We’ve compiled our top five favorite elements to ensure your party is a blast!
1. Start With a Theme
From classic to modern, there’s a theme everyone will love for Halloween! If you like to stay on the classic side try throwing a vampire (like our mock-up above), haunted house, or pumpkin patch party! Zombies and clowns have been a major trend over the last few years if you’re wanting something more frightening for an older crowd.
2. Encourage Adults to Dress Up
This party may be for the kids, but adults can have fun, too! Encourage any adults who are staying for the party to dress in line with the theme. Not only will this make it more fun for the kids, but you can also throw an adult costume contest while supervising the children. You can even make them the judges!
3. Create Unique Decor
Lower the cost of your party by using wholesale decor and linens to decorate on a small budget. While you’ll want to go all out on atypical decor, some of the decorations can be reused for other events throughout the year.
All ages can take part in putting up the holiday decorations, including curly willow sashes, which transform a room into an exciting and haunting destination for your party.
Our Curly Willow Sashes are a beautiful spiraling specialty linen created with quality organza and taffeta. They are available in stunning colors for other special occasions, but black is certainly the color to use for Halloween. Complete your whimsical look with our Curly Willow Table Skirt topped with a tablecloth or table overlay.
4. Let Loose With Fun Games
Halloween party games are plentiful and can easily be found online! Check out ones including these games from Simple Play Ideas:
5. Pin the “Boo” on the Ghost
Color or paint a ghost on a poster board. Using construction paper, cut out a “Boo” for every child. Roll tape on the back of the “Boo”. Have the blindfolded children try to tape the Boo onto the ghost.
6. Spooky Freeze Dance
For this kids’ Halloween game, give each child black and/or orange streamers, or black curly willow sashes, and have them dance to Halloween music while they wave the sashes or streamers around. When the music is paused, everyone is to freeze until the music starts up again.
7. Halloween Parade
If the kids' Halloween party has them coming in costume, have the children proudly march in a parade and show off their costumes. Ask them to do a monster stomp, pretend to stir a witch’s cauldron, and do other Halloween movements.
8. Make Fun Treats
Is anyone up for some hot dog mummies? From bug juice to cute monster cookies there are a number of great recipes out there that anyone will enjoy. Get some major inspiration from Pinterest and be sure to follow our Pinterest boards for more holiday ideas!
For other goodies, you can use these cake and cupcake stands for a unique look.
