Halloween is just around the corner and it’s time to get your family into the mood for some frightful fun. Who doesn’t love Halloween? This year why not consider throwing your kids a creative and fun Halloween party that’s sure to make their whole season spooky good. Kinsights Founder Jennifer Chung shares her spot on Halloween recipes, activities and décor that will have your little monsters begging for more!
Day of the Dead Cookies can be incredibly fun to make with your kids and it’s easy to just make sugar cookies and then decorate.
If you’re looking to make sure the kids have something to eat at the party besides sweets, Halloween quesadillas are made to look like pumpkins and taste really good.
Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats are something your kids can help make and you can easily wrap them in cellophane and hand them out after the party as gifts.
Halloween Puppy Chow is one of our favorite things to have out on tables for people to munch on.
White Chocolate Candy Popcorn is another yummy and easy to make snack that is great for having around your house.
Have some fun activities for your party so kids can keep entertained. In fact, some of these can be made with your kids before the party so they can feel like they’re helping decorate, and others can be set up on a craft table where kids can create while parents hang out.
Sugar Skulls can be a fun craft if you make the skulls ahead of time and then just let kids decorate the skulls. Or, even easier yet, you can purchase the skulls at a local craft store.
Painting with Spiders is an easy activity that most kids can do. Simply get a container or a sectioned plate with different washable paints, paper, and small plastic spiders. They’ll be creating spooky masterpieces in no time.
Get their minds active and working hard while learning to identify new words with a Halloween Word Search.
