I threw another kids Halloween party this year but I simplified it from last year. My neighbors came over one afternoon and helped us make up invitations. I printed up the invites then kita forex them tear out paper for hair and eye brows. Then the kids ran around and passed them out by hand.
My son loved that he got to make the invitations. I kept the food and decor super simple. I put out some toilet paper tubes, google eyes, markers, glue, pipe cleaners and other small things and let the kids create something while we waited for everyone to arrive. We played a few new games and I recycled some from last year. We played “witch, witch, ghost” instead of “duck, duck, goose. Then we played hot potato with a spider.
I made a witch’s hat ring toss. I used a colored foam board for the base. I traced a party hat I had to get the pattern. Then I glued on colored “buckles” and hot glued the hats onto the black circles. I bought some ingredients to toss into my cauldron for “witch’s brew. We did the pin the nose on the witch that I made last year.
I filled some recycled jars with candy and had them guess how many there were. And did a little mummy bowling with our recycled bowling pins. I taped gauze and google eyes onto them and used a black foam pumpkin for the bowling ball. I tried to get a group shot. I had prizes for the games and sent everyone home with a Halloween ring pop.
I didn’t even do goodie bags this time. They just like to get together, play games and have a good time. I need to remember tha more often and not be so worried about creating things “just right” so I have good pictures to blog about! I have a great party game for kids. 8 or 9, I’m about 15 years older than him. We started having a Halloween Costume Birthday for my daughter when she was 9 last year and continue to do so until she gets tired of it.
We set up a buffet with Frito Pie and Chili dog fixings along with chips dips and drinks. We had a separate table for the cake and gifts. We always decorate our front yard every year the week after Thanksgiving and have over 400 Trick or Treaters. Our house is called the Halloween House in the town where we live. Can you tell me how you made the Witches Hat Ring Toss game? Is it just styrofoam cones covered with black paper? Where did you find the rings for the Witches Hat Ring Toss?
I agree, how did you do the witches hat game? What a great party – and such fun ideas thanks for posting. Question for you – did you make the tablecloth or buy it? So cute with the spiderwebs on it. I’ve seen plastic ones around Halloween with solid plastic ones that go beneath sold in sets.
Can you share how you made the witches hat game? I would really like some basic instructions on how to make the witches hat ring toss and where did you get those rings from? I updated the post with how I made it. I’d be happy to send it to you if you email me. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator. And how did you make the green foamy punch? I saw your witch toss on Pinterest and wanted to see if it was ok if I included it in a round up of kid halloween games I am doing.
I love the bowling and the free-styled TP craft. I’d love to have you submit your party on my blog! Thursday I will be doing a round up of Halloween treats and party ideas. Please tell me more about your witches brew. Then add dry ice or what? I had them stand behind a line and see who could toss the most “ingredients” into the empty cauldron. I didn’t actually make punch or use dry ice.
