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 had them tear out paper for hair kita forex 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.
