How to Plan a Young Child's Halloween Party
That time of the year has come around again. It's time to break out the caked old containers of make up, buy candy in bulk, and carve up the jack-o-lanterns. But what if trick-or-treating and the resulting sugar high aren't exactly what you had in mind this year for your youngest? Than perhaps a party is the way to go!
Decide what you personally feel is appropriate for the age group you're throwing the party for.Some parents feel that toddlers shouldn't be playing with blood drenched knives, or five year olds should give the nooses and decapitated heads a break. Other parents find it to be all fun and games, while still others think Halloween in and of itself is inappropriate, and instead lean toward harvest themes. Figure out exactly what you deem appropriate for the age group you are serving.
Make a list of guests.Remember, parents love to see their young kids having a great time in their Halloween costumes. Parents also like to drag along the older kids to keep an eye on them. Make sure you'll have enough supplies for everyone who ends up coming.
Plan food.Nothing kills a party like bad food. Decide exactly what you plan on serving. Lunch? Dinner? Snacks? Cocktails? (for the adults, of course). Make sure that there is plenty of food for everyone to leave stuffed and smiling.
Plan games.If you aren't the creative type, stop by your local party store and see what Halloween/Harvest themed games they have laid out. Remember to get games that are age appropriate for the guests. For younger children, bean bag tosses are excellent. For older children, more challenging games would be more appropriate.
Buy prizes for the games.Games are always more fun when there is something at stake.
Buy candy.Perhaps candy can be your prize. Regardless, there must be candy available for the children as well as their parents.
Buy or make decorations and decorate your home.Once again, use your discretion. Severed hands and toddlers don't usually mix well.
Set up for the party!Lay out the food, put out the games where there's lots of space, double check your decorations and get ready for your guests to role in!
Take lots of pictures.Really, what is cuter than kids fumbling over their costumes and mussing up their face paint? These moments never come by again. Cherish them.
- If you feel stressed about the food, ask other parents to bring appetizers, desserts, or salads while you provide the main course! Nothing says neighborly fun like a potluck.
- If you don't want to mediate the games, print out a page of directions, set it next to the game, and have parents or siblings help the younger ones. Dole out prizes at the end.
- The number one danger is allergies. Make sure that all parents are aware of what their children are putting in their mouths. If you can, avoid peanut candies. Peanuts can cause some of the most severe allergic reactions.
