Halloween comes but once a year. Isn’t it a shame to buy all of those costumes for your children when they only get to wear them for a short time while trick or treating? Why not put on a Halloween party for them and their friends? They are sure to love it.
Halloween Party Food and Snacks:
Any good party needs snacks, and a Halloween party is no different. Make sure you have plenty Halloween themed treats ready for your guests to enjoy. Just about any treat you can think of can be given a Halloween theme; many grocery stores will stock a very large variety of Halloween snacks throughout the month of October.
Halloween Party Decorations:
Decorations are also a vital part of any party. Take your time while decorating for the Halloween party, after all, you do want your guests to see your creepy best, don’t you? Many great decorations can be found at dollar stores. You can decorate your whole party area for under $50 and the decorations can be reused year after year. Items like a smoke machine and scary music will also set the mood for the party.
Any Halloween party that is child oriented should include a craft of some sort. By doing a craft with the children, you will be adding variety to the party and also giving the children a great decoration to remember the event. Some craft ideas could be making a cardboard skeleton, carving a baby pumpkin, or making a hanging ghost from a dollar store ball and pillow case.
On the day of the party, make sure that you and your children are dressed in your Halloween best. As the guests arrive, welcome them in for a ghoulishly good time and let the little monsters cut loose. Playing Halloween music such as thriller and the monster mash are great ways to get the kids jumping around and having a great Halloween party
