Halloween Party Ideas Printable (** for premium members only)
Hosting a Halloween party can either be a fun, safe alternative to trick-or-treating, or can be held on an alternate night to double your holiday fun. This week’s roundup of party planning sites are sure to spark your imagination, with ideas for food, homemade invitations and hundreds of Halloween party games.
Birthday Party Ideas: Halloween Party
Although this site specializes in birthday party ideas, this page is dedicated to Halloween parties. It includes dozens of detailed party plans submitted by readers. Each plan includes ideas for invitations, decorations, games, food, party favors and costumes. Some of these are wildly original. How about a Kitty Litter Treasure Hunt built with a kiddie pool, bird seed (because it is re-usable) and melted Tootsie Rolls? Eww! For details, read the Skeleanimal Halloween Party for 11 year olds, submitted by Jennifer of Gettysburg, PA.
Britta: Halloween Recipes
Britta (“Webmistress of the Dark”) reveals recipes for dozens of her Halloween specialities, along with a photo archive of her annual Halloween shindigs. “You can see in the photos that over the years of being a Halloween Hostess, I have not only created more recipes, but also added spooky signs describing what my eerie edibles are, which I think add to the fun. How else would anyone know they were eating scabs, not just dried cranberries? ;)”
Party Game Ideas: Halloween Games
“Fun Halloween party games that haunt, scare, challenge, and make some scream with delight.” This page hosts a mega-list of all their Halloween party games, annotated by age and game type. Sample categories include food games (Eat Your Brains and Gross Food Guess), story telling games (Create a Haunted Story or Spooky Sound Story) and search games such as Broomstick Witch Hunt and Costume Scavenger Hunt. A few of the printable games are for sale, but the rest all free.
