Check our Latest products!

Throwing a party for the kids this October and looking for fun and easy Halloween party ideas? The best way to make your Halloween party a smashing success is to have great games and activities for them to do. Having a mix of cool Halloween crafts and spooky games will keep the kids busy and having a great time.

Halloween Crafts

Kids love Halloween not just for the candy, but for the chance to dress up in crazy costumes! So why not let them make their own spooky Halloween masks, hats and costumes?

For masks, all you need are some paper plates, a hole punch and string, and decorations like glitter, stickers, markers and other odds and ends. Pick up some hats, ponchos, shirts, boots and such from a thrift store, and let them decorate and assemble their own costumes. Fabric paint and glue make it easy for them to let their imaginations loose!

Another fun craft is, of course, pumpkin carving… but make it cleaner and safer by letting the kids decorate small, mini pumpkins with markers, glitter, stickers and more.

Finally, let them make their own Halloween loot bags. All you need are plain brown paper bags, and lots of things to decorate the bags with. Once they’ve decorated their bags, take them and fill them with candies, stickers, Halloween pencils and erasers, small toys, orange play dough and such. Then tie them with ribbon or taffeta, and present them to the kids when they’re leaving the party.

Halloween Games

Halloween party ideas mainly center around games. One of the easiest games is to stage a Halloween parade, and let the kids show off their costume creations!

Trick Or Treat is another fun game for kids. Cut up strips of paper, about twice as many strips as there are party guests. On half of the strips write ‘trick’, and include a trick… something like ‘stand on one foot’ or ‘cluck like a chicken’. On the other half write ‘treat’. Put all the strips in a hat or Halloween bag, and have the kids sit in a circle. Each child draws a strip from the hat. If they pull ‘trick’, they have to perform the trick for the group. If they pull ‘treat’, then they get to search for a treat, like a small candy or Halloween themed item. Hide the treats around the area.

Mummy Wrap Race is a fun Halloween party idea. Split the kids into small groups, and tell each group to nominate one child as the mummy. The object of the game is to be the first group to wrap their mummy using a whole role of toilet tissue.

There’s tons of fun and easy Halloween party ideas… you’re only limited by your imagination!
