5 Scary Fun Halloween Party Ideas for Kids

There’s more to Halloween than just candy and costumes – give your kids a spooky-fun kind of Halloween party that they’ll never forget. Shindigz can help with all aspects of a Halloween party for kids like décor, activities and snacks. Just try some of the creepy and crafty ideas on this creative Halloween party-planning guide.

Decorate for a Scary Good Time

Transform your home into a haunted house that’s just scary enough to be amusing again and again. Zombie silhouettes make a big impact in your yard when your little guests arrive for the party, while bone-chilling Halloween hanging decorations like spiders, skeletons and cobwebs can make the inside of your home more thrilling than ever for little visitors. Just remember to keep it age appropriate – the kids should be scared just enough to have a great time (not so much that they’re too scared to come inside!).

Make Mini Pumpkins Maximum Spooky

Turn a classic Halloween activity like decorating pumpkins and make it scarily fun for your guests. Stay away from knives and sharp objects with the kids; instead have kids decorate the creepiest pumpkin using craft bits and glue to look like blood, guts and pumpkin seeds.

Glow In The Dark

Once your guests are spooked and full, you’ll need to keep them entertained. Make the most of the night with some glow-in-the-dark games and activities using our glow accessories like glow sticks, glow necklaces and glow fangs.

Serve Food That Frightens

A kids’ Halloween party is the perfect opportunity to get really creative – and a little bit silly – with your party menu. Choose an array of foods that look scary (but, of course, are kid-friendly and taste great). The secret is all in the presentation. Instead of plain old hotdogs, serve amazing mummy Halloweenies. Instead of regular cookies, serve yummy painted ladies’ fingers. Instead of plain caramel apples, serve vampire caramel apples. Serve it all on some cool Halloween-themed tableware and voila! You have a party spread that they will get the kids running…for seconds.

Send Them Home With Frightening(ly Fun) Favors

It wouldn’t be a Halloween party without a little candy, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have to fit the scary theme. Try giving out some of our delicious chocolate lollipops – with scary-themed wrappers to your guests as they go. You’re sure to create a lasting impression.
