Halloween party planning
Whether you use this list for a class party or your own Halloween family fun- these ideas are quick, easy, and kid approved. They are so cute they almost make me want to volunteer for room mom again this year… almost.
Halloween party snacks
As a food allergy mama I whole hardheartedly approve of the policy of store bought treats and eats for classroom parties. That doesn’t mean they can’t be cute and fun!
I love these ideas too because they are not all candy.
Cute pretzel brooms!– I can see these as a little gift the kids make for a sibling or parent for Halloween. They would have to be assembled in class.
Graveyard Pudding Cups – These would be adorable as a craft/snack- have the kids create their graveyard and then they get to eat it. Two in one!
Hand Shaped Treat Bags– Oh, so spooky!
Finally- this is my “go to” Halloween party snack- Just throw it all in a big cauldron. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Scarecrow Crunch Trail Mix– This particular recipe is allergy friendly, but the combinations are endless. Great options for your trail mix are- pretzel twists, mini marshmallows, M&M’s, candy corn, Honey Comb cereal, chocolate chips, Chex cereal etc. It’s great because the parents donating food to the party just had to send it in and we did a quick assembly right before the party started.
Halloween party Crafts and Activities
Autumn Leaf Jar Candle Holder– let the kids take home something their parents would love to set out every year!
Spider Crown Tutorial- Girls and Boys alike would love to be honored with this spooky crown!
The Great Pumpkin Investigation– I love this! A great way for kids to get hands on with their activity and it sneaks in some learning. 🙂
