10 Not-So-Spooky Halloween Party Ideas for Kids

Everyone loves a good Halloween party. It’s that time of the year when people can be spooky and fun at the same time. While most of us love a spooky, horror-filled Halloween night, some love Trick Or Treat with a few fun activities planned for their kids. 

Make sure you’re following govt approved rules and event safety regulations expected by your attendees, especially when kids and parents are concerned.  Now, that you’re in the clear, here are 10 not-so-spooky Halloween party ideas for kids that you can try.

1. Don Your Best Disney Costume

Every kid has a favorite Disney cartoon character which makes hosting a costume contest in your neighborhood a brilliant idea. Let the kids go Disney bounding as Mickey Mouse with wicked false teeth or Halloween Snow White princess. If you’re hosting this contest outdoors, don’t forget to decorate the place with posters and props of characters like Madam Medusa or the Hag.

2. Strictly For The Witches and Wizards

Host a Witches and Wizards theme party for the kids where they come dressed as cute little witches and bring their brooms and hats along. Decorate your event venue with spiderwebs, spiders, and a cauldron with dry ice and serve them with Halloween witch fingers (without coloring), and soda float.

3. Jack-O’-Lantern Carving Coloring Contest

Knives can hurt the little hands and turn your party into a horror story. Instead of carving,  keep pumpkins of different sizes, paints, teeth, and eyeballs and let the kids show their creativity. The winner of the best-carved pumpkin wins a Halloween cookie hamper and those Jack-O’-Lanterns double up as evening decor.

4. Hunt The Ghost

Make 7 – 8 cute little ghost-shaped cut-outs using cardboard and paint it white and with round black eyes on it. Hide it in different corners of the house. If hosting an outdoor ghost hunt, place it in the bushes or behind trees. Give easy-to-follow cues and hints, and let the ghost hunt begin.

5. Decorate Your Monsters

Give your kids an opportunity to show off their painting skills once again. Host a decorate your monster party, in which they form teams of two. They can choose the Halloween character they want to paint on their partner as a time-bound activity.

6. Pop Goes the Balloon

In this game, you’ll need a lot of white balloons (that’ll look like ghosts) and a thread to tie it up. Blow the balloons and hang them from the wall in a row. Each kid will face one 1 balloon and will get a dart and they need to aim the dart at the balloon. The one who pops the most balloons is the winner.

7. Aim For The Witch

This Halloween game requires witch hats and hula hoops. You can place 3 hats next to each other at a little distance and make teams of two. Blindfold one member and let the other one guide to aim and throw the hoop on the hat. 

8. Get Crafty Like Edward Scissorhands

There’s a lot that kids can do when it comes to a Halloween craft contest. Paper Jack-O’-Lanterns, spider webs on ice cream sticks, and bats made out of black paper plates with wings are some ideas you use for the Halloween craft contest.

9. Snack Attack 

Who doesn’t love a snack, especially kids! Invite the moms as well so they can help the kids in making a great snack. From trick or treater sugar cookies to chocolate-dipped oreo bat balls, you have multiple options, the mom and kid duo can pick and make at the Halloween snack contest.

10. Cherry In The Pumpkin

This may sound a bit gross but is one of the best Halloween party ideas for kids. Grab a Jack-O’-Lantern and add slime made of glue, glitter, and confetti. You can throw a cherry or a vampire ring in it. Let the kids put their hands in the slime to find the ring within a minute.
