Halloween is one of those holidays that is purely for fun for both adults and kids alike, and it’s a great excuse to throw a party. Lolita Healy, a nationally known Celebrations Expert and founder of Designs by Lolita , has some halloween party ideas that will bewitch your guests and keep your party fresh, fun and full of conversation and laughter, so prepare or a wicked good time.
Halloween Sip and See
Bobbing for Apples
This station is all about the apples (clearly)! Have an array of apple-flavored foods, like candied apples, apple crisp and apple-filled doughnuts. You can also set up a bobbing for apples game (do the real thing using small apples, or set up the “clothesline” version). As a fun touch, include a grab bag of bobbing for apple-related prizes: apple charm bracelets, applesauce to go, apple stickers and fake apples.
The Wicked Witch Station
In a cauldron, set up your “witches potion” with dry ice floating its way around the table. The Cast a Spell Grab Bag is a fun party game to incorporate—each kid draws a spell that they have to do at the party. Example: “Toil and trouble you are, apologize to the person next to you.”
Gooey Gore -Set up some “gross” food to go with the theme.
Kid Friendly Halloween Party Treats
Swamp Water Coolers
1 can ecto cooler
1 quart orange juice with pulp (most kids think the pulp is gross!)
1 2-liter bottle ginger ale
Ice (optional touch‹make it with gummy worms frozen inside)
Serve in real glass tumblers with orange straws.
Ready-made crescent roll dough
Mustard and ketchup
Cut the crescent dough into strips, and wrap hot dogs to look like mummies.
Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until light golden brown. You can
make faces using the ketchup and mustard.
Set up a dessert stations with cake and bowls of Jell-O in Halloween colors like green and orange (make it creepy-crawly by putting little plastic spiders in the Jell-O).
All that¹s left to do is eat, drink and be scary!
