Are you planning a Halloween party this year? If so, we’ve got lots of fun and easy Halloween party ideas and games to keep guests of all ages entertained for hours.
Halloween Party Decorations
First up, why not decorate your room with Halloween themed lava lamps. Can you make a ghost one?
We really love this ghost decoration from Rainy Day Mum.
Or how about these pipecleaner pumpkins?
Make a Halloween garland like this one from Tinkerlab. You could experiment with different materials to see which moves the least/most in the wind.
If you don’t fancy carving a pumpkin, how about making a yarn wrapped pumpkin like The Imagination Tree.
Decorate your room with some fake blood and learn about coagulation at the same time.
We love these spider web paper plate decorations from Creative Family Fun. Could you make the web sticky and throw spiders at it?
Halloween Party Food
We love these witchy cauldron cakes from Rainy Day Mum.
Have some fizzy baking soda fun with a Monster’s Tea Party, but remember these aren’t edible.
Or how about some pumpkin cake pops?
You could make a Halloween gingerbread house, and test to see what sticks it together the best?
Halloween Party Games
Try one of our easy Halloween STEM Challenges. Build Halloween candy towers, blow up a pumpkin balloon with baking soda, make a creepy density jar or make creepy Halloween melting hands.
Use Halloween coloured juices and investigate which mixture makes the best bubbles!
How about a game of what’s in the pumpkin?
These shooting ghosts are brilliant from Growing a Jewelled Rose.
These paint colour sample puzzles look like great fun from Kids Activities Blog.
Have a game to see who can construct a model brain the fastest. Can you name the component parts?
Make a Halloween railroad like Play Trains.
Make skeleton pictures using Q-tips like Mama Smiles.
Scare your friends with this spooky sounds device. If you use different sized and shaped cups the sound should change.
Halloween Messy Play and Potions
Last year I put together 10 brilliant witchy potions for you to try. The hardest thing is deciding which to try first! Would you rather a gloopy slime, a dry ice drink or magic colour changing potions?
Do you have any more Halloween party ideas for us?
