Ghostly Simple Halloween Party Ideas

Calling all Parents of Little Goblins

Have your kids decided what they want to dress up as for Halloween this year? While they are deciding on Hanna Montana or which Jonas Brothers to be, now is the time to plan the perfect Halloween bash. Invite some of the little goblins from the neighborhood and have a spooktakular party! We've put together some fantastic party ideas for a fun kids' Halloween party.

Invitations: is your source for the perfect Halloween invitation. Can’t decide on a theme? Let our fun custom printed Halloween invitations lead the way. We have some boo-tiful ideas including ghosts, witches, spiders, bats, and black orange polka dots. Choose from any of our bewitching greetings and you are sure to find the perfect invite for your Halloween party.

Looking for fun Halloween decorations? Party City has garlands, centerpieces, and balloons to transform your entire house. They have decorations that incorporate all the main themes for Halloween. The Gruesome Group has fun characters like bats, witches, ghosts, and spiders.

Little goblins have finicky appetites, so keep the food simple and easy. What is the all time favorite? Cheese pizza of course! This Cheesy Corn pizza will be a big crowd pleaser. It looks like candy corn but without all the sugar! How about some Tuna Spook Sandwiches? These fun shaped sandwiches can be made with different Halloween cookie cutters and fillings. Instead of potato chips, opt for this great alternative, Pirates Booty, a baked rice and corn puff white cheddar snack. The name alone makes our kids giggle.
Refreshments can vary from mini juice boxes or big punchbowl of slime punch.

Depending on the time frame of your bash, you can choose between 3-5 activities to keep the little goblins from turning into little ghouls.
Set up an area with crayons and Halloween themed pictures so they can release their artistic abilities.
Purchase miniature pumpkins and let each child decorate their own with paint or stickers. This will keep them busy and they will have a nice party favor to take home with them. If some of the little goblins are too young to go trick or treating, scatter your adult guests around the party area and give them some treats to hand out to the kids. This will allow the little ones to join in on the fun of this Halloween tradition.

Let your inner DJ out and mix up a set of Halloween tunes using Itunes so everyone can get into the Monster Bash!

Witching you a Happy Halloween!
