Spooky Kid Halloween Party
It is the time of the year again. The weather is getting colder. The maple leaves start turning red and falling down all over the place. Fall season is around the corner and what are the most events to celebrate this time of the year is undoubtly Halloween. Yes, it is Halloween and I love it.
My friend, Diana was planning to have a kid Halloween party at her house and she asked me if I could help her as her cohost for this event. She planned to invite some of the girls from our pre-school group, so I volunteered in with such an excitement. It took us two weeks to come up with the plan such as games, foods, and decors. And here are some the plan that we came up with:

Kid Halloween Party Games
As we realized that bring a group of kids at age of 2-3 years old were going be quite challenging. Therefore, we came up with some plans to make this gathering as a fun, entertaining, and of course excitement. Here are the games that we created:
Portrait time: Nothing is a kid Halloween party without a costume. I would bet you folks will be just like me, spending a great deal of time and efforts to find the perfect costume for your little angels. I was so excited when all the girls showed up. There were Miss Little Red Riding Hood, a unicorn, a little kitten, a Tinker Bell, a fairy, and a pumpkin. It was so colorful and perfect for portrait gathering.
Wrap the Mummy - It’s always a big hit at the party. Give Mom a roll of toilet paper; instruct them to wrap their own child as the Mummy. It also built a bond between mommy & daughter.
Monster Mash dance - Play Halloween party music and let your child unlock their dance with all spider balloons thrown in the air.
Spider handprint: Using this crafts ideas not worried about getting messy will keep them happy and provide a nice keepsake for parent.
Bobbing Apples - How about old-fashioned favorites, filled a big tub with water and float some apples for apple-bobbling contest. This was a blast!
Beanbag toss: Cardboard was cut into Pumpkin shapes and they were used for decoration and also bean bag tossing game.
Doughnuts on strings: Its sweet reward for girls. Simple buy donut that sprinkle it with orange and black color hung from chair tied between two strings.
Paint pumpkins: Buy some small pie pumpkin and some acrylic jewels, feathers, sequin for girls to decorate their own pumpkin with glue.
Photo Booth: All girls get to play with feather, fun glass and hats.
Seeing those girls participated in the games made my heart so joyful and blissful. The girls were having fun from one game to another. I also noticed some of their mothers were just as excited as theirs when they saw their kids were able to complete the game and won.
Kid Halloween Party Decoration
Diana, my friend did an excellent job in decorating her house. I gave her a high mark on this. The house looked spooky yet charmed, even one of the little girls that walked into the house was fascinated and made a comment “This is amazing”. Adding to the festivity, the entire mom brought their carved pumpkins for the pumpkin contest.
Caterpillar squash Found these ideas from Halloween magazine. First, sprayed the paint all over the squash to light green color, after that, decorated them with some circle felt. It does make wonderful decoration and last very long time.
Place card : The pumpkin paper is made from orange cutting card paper into small stripe. Bring them together and staple the top. Decorated with some leave and girls’ name, place them on the plate.
Candy corn Spider I find this idea form etsy. Simply put 4 candy corn together wrap with black tulle add some pipe cleaner to make the legs. After that, add the wiggle eyes on the front of the spider.
Game sign using water color paint on the cardboard box to make the look of the wood. So it feels like all the girl is at the farm.
Napkin rings using black and orange felt cut into rectangle wrap around white napkin. Then glue small craft spider on the top.
Apple tree making green, orange and brown pompom with tissue paper. Put together on the wall as a tree; decorate with some cutting apple from card paper.
Ghosts Stuff toilet paper in the circle shape wrap with white tulle into a ball. Put some eyes and ribbon hang with fish string from the ceiling.
Lollipop ghosts Wrap the lollipop with white cloths decorated eyes and ribbons.
Spider balloons All kids love balloons. Blow balloons up with black purple and orange color twist them together as a spider.
Kid Halloween Party Foods
No party is complete without food. We tried to emphasize on healthy menu for our little one, yet served well for the theme by simply named it to the Halloween flavor, such as:
Veggie platter Cut some celery cucumbers into slices on a platter.
Creepy Crawly pasta salad Kids loves pasta why didn’t try pasta salad.
Ghost potatoes Simple cut potatoes in half and baked them with cheese. Then decorate the eyes with olive and the mouth with green onion.

Kale Salad Mixed color of Halloween vegetables. For sample orange tomatoes Mummy Wrap Making from hotdog wrapping with croissant ,then decorated the eyes with yellow mustard.
Pumpkins pie Filled individual. Decorated with whip cream on the top and MM candy for eyes.
Jack-O-Latern Jello These pumpkins are actually orange peels. Simple cut off the top quarter of an orange scrape the pulp from the lid, carefully scrape out its pulpy inside using a spoon. (As you would on a pumpkin) Use the knife to gently cut out the eyes and mouth of Jack O lantern face. Filled with some colorful jello for kids.
