Halloween is upon us, and it’s the perfect time to organize a Spooktacular party for the kids. As much as I love fancy dress, I also like to relax and party hard at home with my family. Here are my top ten tips for creating the ultimate kid’s Halloween Party, which your adult guest will enjoy too.

Are you ready to create your Spooktacular Halloween Party? Let’s go….


#1. Choose Your Theme Wisely

This is the first thing you want to do is decide on the Halloween Theme you would like to create and build off that. There are so many Halloween themes to choose from, you are sure to find one to meet your goulash needs. For example, do you want to go with spider webs with black and orange décor? Or would you prefer a monster theme, witch fest along with a scary forest outside? As you can see the possibilities are endless. But do remember you want the kiddo’s to have fun, not be frightened.


#2. Make Fun Invitations

Now that you have your cute little theme picked out, it’s time to get the invitations ready. Make your own and have fun with it. You can include the kiddo’s as well to help. This will make it even more special. One thing you can do with the invitations is make them to match your Halloween Theme. You can also make little candy gift bags to match as well. Kid’s love to make crafts at least my grandchildren do.


#3. Halloween Games

If you have different age children as I do, you can still have games that everyone can enjoy. Even the adults. Here are some fun games to consider for all ages…

These games are sure to keep the kiddo’s happy and entertained. On Amazon under $10.00!


#4. Start and End

Now it’s time decide what time you want the party to start and when you want it to end. If it’s just a party for the kid’s, younger one’s may only lasts for a couple of hours and the older ones 3-4 hours. Make sure to state the start and end times on the invitations so the parents will know what time to drop them off and pick them up.

Now for me and my family, we always have a start time, but then we end it when we get ready too. Which is usually longer than 2-4 hours.🎃


#5. Baking Time

This is my favorite part besides the decorating. Depending on what and how much you are making, give your self enough time to get your treats baked, decorated and ready for the big day. Baking your goodies a couple of days ahead of time will take a lot of stress off of you.

For me I bake my cookies, especially if I decorate them, 2 days ahead of time. Then I will bake my cake the day before and decorate it. I like to make cookies and then let my grandchildren come over and help me decorate them. They love it and so will you. If family wants to help in baking goodies, let them! For a delicious cookie recipe go to Donna’s Best Holiday Butter Cookies.


#6. Decorate the House

Now that you have picked out a theme and got all of your goodies baked and decorated, it’s time to get your Halloween decorating on. I like to decorate a few days before the party. Give your self plenty of time to get everything like you want it. Get your spooky juices flowing and turn your house into a Halloween Scene that is sure to please both you and your guest. If you need some cute decorations and don’t want to make them your self, check out your local Dollar Tree or Dollar General. They have cute stuff priced to fit any budget.


#7. Add Music to Your Theme

There’s nothing like adding a little music to your party to get things going. These songs are sure to get everyone dancing. I recommend songs like “Monster Mash,” “Ghostbusters,” “Thriller.” And of course if you have an Alexa, you can ask her to play Halloween music for children.


#8. Serve Simple Snacks

No need to stress your self out over the snacks, just keep it simple. Here are some idea’s below:

  1. Monster Cupcakes-get these at your local Walmart to save time
  2. Cake Pops-get some your local bakery
  3. Halloween Cookies-pick some up a your local Walmart
  4. Sneak in some healthy snacks-Halloween monster mouth snacks, crunchie Halloween mummies, pumpkin party mix

#9. Time for Halloween Games

Now that the kiddos have eaten some treats how about some dancing to burn off some of the sugar highs? My little ones love to have dance contest and I bet yours would too. After all that dancing try sitting down for a rest and play some board games like Halloween Bingo, do a craft like decorating some pumpkins, watch a Halloween cartoon like “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”


#10. Photo Time

Well, the party was a hit and things are winding down, now is the time to take photo’s to save the memories of time spent with family and friends.
