Super Spooky Halloween party tips!

27 October 2022

With Halloween on a Monday this year, you might not be able to get your kids out and about trick-or-treating for as long this year, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Why not plan a super-spooky Halloween party to keep your kids in fang-tastically high spirits over the weekend?   

 

Decorations 

Don’t worry about rushing around last minute to get some decorations for your party, you can turn the whole weekend into a spooky adventure by having your kids create them!  

We recently shared a blog with a handful of Halloween crafts that’ll keep your kids busy, and help you get ready for the party.  

Take a look.  

 

Party food 

One thing about Halloween that everyone loves is the food! However, there can often be a worry amongst parents about how many artificial sugars children are eating with all those sweets – everything is fine in moderation, but we also want to make sure they’re getting all the nutrients that they need!  

You can make plenty of spooky treats out of fruit, for example:  

  1. Peel some oranges, and stick a small piece of celery into the top – now you’ve got mini pumpkins!  
  2. Place some chocolate chips on to banana slices to make some ghostly faces 
  3. Dip strawberries in white chocolate and decorate as needed and you have some ghostly ghouls or some ancient mummies to munch. 

 

Games! 

No Halloween party for kids is complete without games! You can go with a classic like apple bobbing or put a twist on a typical party game like ‘pin the tail’ by making a web and having your children pin a spider on it.  

You can test their maths skills by writing out sums and putting ghoulish treats to block out some of the numbers. For every one they get right, they can win the sweet treat. 

 

Make sure you let us know on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter how you spend this Halloween! Whether it’s trick or treating or spooky games, we can’t wait to see what you’re up to.
