Halloween Party Planning {Part 2}

So yesterday I gave you the format of how we run our holiday parties. I HIGHLY recommend doing something structured if your past parties have been as fabulously disastrous as mine were.

Onto the fun stuff – what the heck are we doing at our Halloween party this year??

In past years we have done the whole ewwy gooey messy thing; red jello for blood, spaghetti for worms, pistachio pudding for boogers – yep the whole sha-bang. Obviously the kids die in excitement over this. I’m not going to lie to you. It’s a big ol’ messy pain in the butt. Except the kids really do love it. And it’s freaken hilarious as well. Disclaimer – if you do this you will end up with some amazing combination of pudding/jello/noodles in your hair. You will. There’s no way around it.

Last year we took a break from this and did slime instead. Little hint – not much cleaner or easier fyi. So I think we are going to bring back the gooeyness this year. Wish me luck.

Treats or Snacks

Last year we made spider oreo cookies:

So I think we will either do those or one of these two stinkin cuuuute ideas I found on pinterest:

from nap time crafts

Arts and Crafts 

 I kinda love crafts involving painting their hands or feet. Haha – that maybe makes me sound weird. But I think it’s good for exposure to new sensory experiences and they turn out super cute!

Last year we did ghost footprints.

And we have also done spider handprints:

I love these ideas from pinterest:

 Bahhhh too many cute ideas how do I choose?!?

Games and Activities

We will be playing October bingo. My kids love a good bingo game and it’s an easy enough game to include all students.

and we will also be playing our Halloween Language Games – Real v. Make Believe and Fact v. Fiction. My guys have been loving these games. They can’t stop giggling at the Make-Believe flashcards!



What are you doing for your Halloween Parties this year?
