Halloween Party Prepping

Categories: Fall | Resources

Halloween is right around the corner. Before you know it you will have a class full of sugar high little monsters (not being mean – they might be in costumes…) jumping off the walls of your classroom. While your mind might be on pinterest overload with the amount of undeniable cuteness and creativity – I thought I’d throw my hat in the ring and share my Halloween party madness from last year.

We do stations for our parties and this helps immensely. This adds the MUCH needed element of structure and schedules (duh – our kids need those every day – why wouldn’t they need them during party time?).

We do ooey, gooey sensory for Halloween. It is a disgusting and nasty mess and the kids love every second of it. We use red jello for blood, spaghetti dyed red for guts, spaghetti left in a colander for a brain, pistachio pudding with marshmallows for boogers, and chocolate pudding for dirt. Yuck.

We decorate pumpkins with masks, googley eyes, feathers, and pipe cleaners!

We mae spider oreos!

We also make spider hand prints. These turned out super cute!

Other Halloween Activities: October bingo with Boo Berries or toy spiders as the bingo chips, read Halloween books, play Real v. Make Believe Halloween Games, and hammering golf tees into pumpkins.

So get your venti, extra shot starbucks ready and make sure to get an extra few hours of sleep – halloween is coming and it’s gonna get ya.



  1. I love these sensory activities for Halloween – what a great idea! I also did the spider handprints in my classroom and they turned out very cute!

  2. This post is a life saver! Thanks!!

  3. So cute! I love these ideas! Very adorable! Thanks Sasha!

  4. Love these ideas! Thanks for sharing them. We are having a “fall fest” party tomorrow and I was just thinking I should look for more ideas! Check, check, and check!! 🙂

  5. I always do stations for holiday “parties” as well. Love the sensory ideas. I usually do a pumpkin food tasting station, where my little lovelies can step out of their food comfort zones and taste something new, tell me if they like or don’t like and we can tally or graph class responses.

  6. So fun! I love that idea!
