      Halloween Party Ideas

      For years children were able to celebrate Halloween in the

      traditional way of going for house to house saying “Trick or Treat”.

      Knowing that there would always be a treat. However times have

      changed, in many areas it is no longer to practice this tradition.

      With the loss of one tradition, makes room for a new one. Well ok may

      be not new, but more common………the halloween party.

      the party may be only a couple of hours long or a over night slumber

      party.

      first any party worth going to must have munches! here are some ideas

      to get you started:

      games

      liver toss – just like the old game “bean bag toss” only using liver.

      decorate a large mixing bowl or bucket as a witch’s cauldron. then

      have kids toss the liver (thawed beef liver, well rinsed) into the

      bucket.

      how many words can you make from the word “halloween”? this simple

      game can be played individually or in pairs. give everyone paper and

      pencil. allow a limited amount of time. who ever has the most words

      wins. if you would like a pre-printed sheet: 2 per sheet or 1 per

      sheet (you will need to use your browser’s “BACK” button to return)

      Lil Ghosts – This is a handy little craft project for younger kids,

      or make some ahead of time as favors.

      Each ghost will require one Tootise Pop (sucker), 1 white kleenex,

      and a small rubber band or twist tie.

      Drape kleenex over sucker, place rubber band or twist tie directly

      under the candy. This will make the head. Using a black marker draw

      on eyes.

      Halloween Bingo – Make your own bingo cards using halloween pictures.

      I have made a small version for younger kids. You may wish to print

      on card stock, however regular paper will work. You will need to

      print one copy of “Chips” these will be placed in a container to

      draw,

      Each card sheet has four cards, “print page” will give you all four,

      on two pages. Set 1 – Set 2 – Set 3 – Set 4

      Treats ‘n Guts – Fill a large container with something disgusting

      like spaghetti, jello…. Place candies in zip lock sandwich bags and

      bury in spaghetti. Turn off lights and have the kids dig for their

      prizes.

      OR buy little plastic prizes and place directly in container.

      Pass Along Jack – Using small plastic Jack-o-lanterns, or a

      miniature pumpkin

      Line up in teams. The first person in each team is given a Jack-o-

      lantern to place

      under his chin. He must pass it to the next in line but neither may

      use his hands. The first team to get it all the way to the last

      person is the winner. If the Jack-o-lantern is dropped , just pick

      it up and continue from there.

      Little Piggies – Spread a pile of wrapped candy on a table or large

      tray. Give each child a container (small bag, bowl, paper cup).

      Giving the children only a set time (like 30 seconds) Each child is

      to get as much candy in their container as they can, with out using

      their hands. when time is up the one with the most pieces wins.

      however every one gets to keep what they got.

      pin the nose on jack – played just like “pin the tail on the

      donkey” . before the party draw a jack-o-lantern (minus the nose)

      on a piece of poster board. hang on wall. cut one nose for each

      child. just before the child plays have him/her write their name on

      their nose. then place a piece of double stick tape on back.

      mummy wrap – break into teams of three. have two member s of each

      team on one side of the room and the other member across the room.

      give each pair a roll of white bath tissue. when the game starts

      one member must wrap the other too look like a mummy. the person must

      be totally covered expect for eyes. once the person is wrapped, the

      must walk like a mummy across the room to their team member. then

      the other team member must carefully unwrap the mummy. now the one

      who was the mummy must now wrap the other person using the same

      tissue. again once wrapped, that person walks across the room. the

      the one waiting must repeat the process. the first time to have all

      three mummies walk wins.

      decorations

      the haunted room – great place for the kid to sleep if you are brave

      enough to be having a slumber party,

      cover windows with blankets, garbage bags or foil to block light.

      remove breakables!!!!!

      cover furniture with cheap black fabric. this serves two purposes:

      one it looks cool and most important it protects the furniture!

      floating ghosts – cover helium filled balloons with pieces of white

      cloth. old sheets are great! draw eyes with black marker.

      you can

      also do ghosts by simply using white balloons and drawing the face

      directly on them. use little pumpkins for weights.

      wax paper ghosts – pull off a large piece of wax paper, bunch up

      into a ball. tear off two to three more pieces, drape over first

      piece, tie with string, yarn, rubber band… under ball. this will

      make the head. draw eyes with black marker. hang from ceiling with

      fishing line.

      spider webs – pull cotton batting apart and drape across furniture

      and hang in door ways. attach little plastic spiders.

      fog – place dry ice in a container of warm water. rectangle flower

      boxed are great, because of their shape and size. simply set on floor

      next to the wall. warning keep small children away from ice.

      dead body – stuff old paints and shirt, place in lying position on a

      drip cloth or piece of plastic. place a hat over the top of shirt,

      giving allusion of it being placed over a face. fill bowls with

      assortment of fake guts. open shirt and place bowl inside exposing

      contents, rip open holes in other places of clothing and do same, for

      a extra touch garnish with ketchup.

      suggested guts:

      large sausages

      peeled grapes

      chicken bones

      a big long dog bone ( femur)

      cold raw wieners – break off ends

      beef liver, kidneys, heart, tongue

      kidneys

      spaghetti

      jello

      food and munches

      brain soup – make some “matzo ball soup” or “chicken and dumplings”

      and add green food

      witch’s brew punch – mix cranberry juice, frozen orange juice (with

      pulp), and ginger ale. add green and blue food coloring until color

      becomes a disgusting gray color.

      or make some orange juice (with pulp) and add coloring.

      ice for the punch – fill rubber gloves with colored water or fruit

      juice. tie shut and freeze. gently remove glove and place hand in

      punch. don’t worry if finger breaks off, just toss in the punch too.

      (it will give it that “special touch”.)

      or you could always use the traditional dry ice. great for special

      effects.

      healthy eyeballs – take hard boiled eggs, remove shell and cut

      lengthwise. scoop out yolk, and fill hole with whipped cream cheese.

      use an olive with pimento for pupil. for the “bloodshot” look

      decorate with red food coloring and a toothpick.

      brain salad – make green jello, add red food coloring until the

      desired color, add tiny fruit pieces. if you don’t happen to have

      a “brain” mold in the cabinet, you can make one. use a mixing bowl

      for the stand, shape heavy duty foil into desired shape. place in

      bowl, will with jello.

      witches hats – you will need a keebler¨ fudge striped cookie (or

      similar), a hershey kiss and orange decorator icing for each hat.

      turn cookie upside down so that the chocolate side is up. use the

      orange decorator icing to pipe around the hole in the center. place

      an unwrapped kiss on the icing circle. finish by piping around the

      base of the kiss and drawing a little bow.

      .

      cheap pumpkin halloween costume

      materials needed:

      orange pumpkin leaf bag

      brown or green tights or stirrup pants

      green turtle neck shirt

      green felt to make plant leaves

      green or brown ribbon to tie up bag

      newspaper for stuffing

      instructions:

      cut two small holes on bottom of the pumpkin leaf bag (big enough to

      put your legs through).

      after putting on your turtleneck shirt and tights, step into the big

      pumpkin bag. use the crumpled up newspaper to stuff around your

      tummy. i pulled the bag to my shoulders and taped it on the shoulders

      so that my arms were loose then loosely tied a bow (using the ribbon)

      to gather the top of bag. cut three large green felt leaves and hot

      glue together to make hat. cut two small holes in felt to run ribbon

      through. tie under chin and have fun!
