Looking for Kid’s Halloween party themes?
Need suggestions for some cool costumes, gross food, or some spooktacular game ideas?
I've got you covered. This is my favorite holiday and I have some awesome Halloween theme ideas for you.
Most kids love to be scared (a little) and they get a kick out of gory, messy fun so I'm going to give you my favorite ideas for a spooky, bone rattling kid's theme party!
Don't fear if you aren't creative or imaginative as I have some great Halloween party themes to share with you including cool costumes, creepy food and bone crunching games.
Need some suggestions on some awesome costumes for your kids?
Depending on the age of your child, they might be into a character from their favorite movie, an animal of some kind (like dinosaurs or puppies), or they might go for scary and creepy from the latest horror movie they just watched.
Don't feel you have to go out and spend a fortune on costumes.
If at all possible I would try to make your own costume from stuff you have around the house or from a second hand store, especially for the younger kids. After all, they only wear it once and next year they will be into something else.
There are a lot of Halloween party themes you can choose from and it might be easier to pick a theme once the kids let you know what they want to dress up as.
Fill white balloons with helium. Then take a small white sheet which needs to be large enough to cover the balloon and to hang down a bit. Hang it over the balloon and then stick some black circles for eyes to the cloth. Float the balloon up to the ceiling and let it waft about. It's best to do this indoors as otherwise your balloons will float off into the night sky!
Stuff a skin colored latex glove with cotton wool so as to make the hand look solid. Paint on torn finger nails and dribble red nail varnish on it to resemble blood. Sit it on a plate surrounded by tasty treats and see who dares to be the first to take one.
Specimen Body Parts
Fill empty glass jars with colored liquid. You can use food coloring for this. Place a plastic body part in each jar such as an eyeball, ear or severed finger. Set the jars up on a long table to look like a specimen lab.
Old Lady Spirit
Using black paper, cut out a large silhouette of an old lady. You can just do it from the waist up and have her side view. Stick the silhouette to your window where passers by will see her. Have the room lights off but have just one small lamp shining behind the silhouette.
Using thin plywood, cut out the shapes of 2 hands and a head. Draw a face on the man or if you prefer just make it a skeleton or ghost face. Paint the hands and head in glow in the dark paint. When dry half bury the head and hands in the ground so it looks like the man is half buried.
Using strong cardboard (an old box would be good), cut out a tomb stone shape. Paint it in dark grey paint and then write and inscription on it such as "I'll be back" or "I'm waiting for you". Attach it to a thin stake and place the stake in your lawn.
Make a scarecrow to put on your front lawn. Dress him/her all in black with a big black hat and black cloak.
Make some gross food as ghoulish and ghastly as possible but obviously you want the kids to eat the food so make sure that it tastes good in spite of its name!
By each plate of food make a little card (in the shape of a tombstone and decorated with spooky stickers) with the name of the food.
Decorate the table with a black cloth and place lots of plastic/paper creepy crawlies amongst the food. As a centerpiece, place a large Jack-o-Lantern in the middle with a night light candle inside. Put plastic insects in each cup and give everyone green or black cups, plates and straws.
