It’s getting to be that time of year when you’re preparing for a costume or haunted house party for children and adults alike this Halloween season. Of course you need all the trimmings that go along with Halloween such as pumpkins for carving out jack-o-lanterns, having an assortment of candies for the guests, buying apples to make red candied apples, and brewing apple cider for refreshments. A party at Halloween needs one key element to get everyone in the right mood, and that is Halloween music.
These two vampire songs were the most often mentioned after the Annie Lennox classic. They are much creepier but you could probably throw one or both of them into a playlist for all ages and get away with it.
You could offer a trick-or-treat open house in your own home. Provide a cozy and safe place for the neighborhood children and their parents to gather on Halloween. Planning the festivities can be simple with everyone’s help.
Making toilet paper mummys is another fun Halloween party game. Have the children separate in to groups of two and give the each a roll of toilet paper. Set a timer and have them race to see which pair can make the best toilet paper mummy. one child will wrap the other will be mummified! The group with the best mummy wins a prize.
A kids’ Halloween party is not complete without fun halloween to keep the kids moving and entertained. For years, traditional Halloween songs have been passed down from generation to generation. We continue to enjoy classics, like Monster Mash, Flying Purple People Eater, and Adam’s Family TV Theme, but there are always new songs that you can add to your Halloween Song list for kids.
Don’t strive for perfection: There is no such thing as a perfect party. If you enjoy setting everything up and you keep the party in a lively, high-spirited state then the party will be something to think back on and smile! Don’t get caught up in the details and don’t try to micromanage the whole event. Let the party flow from beginning to end.
These are just a few of the thematic party games you could create to go along with your Halloween bash! Think of your favorite game and create a holiday twist.
