Creating a great Halloween-themed party is much easier than people think! Here are a few tips you can implement in your Halloween Cooking and Halloween party throwing in order to liven up the setting and create a great, spooky environment to host in.
Start out with a game of guessing how many candy pieces are in a jar. To make it easy for the preschool age children, use a small jelly size jar and fill it with larger pieces of candy such as miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups. Have each child try to guess how many pieces are in the jar. Write each answer with the child’s name down. The child who guesses the closest without going over wins the jar and the candy.
A different game which seems to popular is the building a scarecrow game. This entails having numerous groups of children make their scarecrow using pillow cases, old clothes, newspapers, cardboards, tapes or adhesives, and markers. You will have to set up some old clothes for this one. The children will certainly enjoy making something that often see in television and books.
Instrumental/Soundtracks – these are always good for throwing in the Halloween playlist. Even if they are all instrumental – or don’t specially address vampires – it’s fun to add the creepy music or try to remember what movie or show the song is from.
Another popular choice is systems that allow you to add music to the system. This makes it easy to allow your doorbell to play your favorite song, Christmas carols, halloween or other music. It also can allow people to be able to play their college fight song or even give messages that they record or have recorded. This is probably giving you some ideas on what you or someone else could choose for their doorbell.
The Tales From the Crypt theme song gives me the chills. Do you remember the days when this show aired on television? I could not wait for the next episode! The bizarre, strange outcomes in the end always surprised me. This is a great song to play even if others have never heard it before. There are enough eerie sounds within it to creep out anybody!
If you’re looking for some fun and games outdoors around the St. Louis area then bring the kids out to the Great Godfrey Maze but don’t forget the flashlight. You’re going to need it for all of the twists and turns if you’re going there at night. The kids will have fun shooting ears of corn out of a cannon. They have hay rides and tea cups and a corn crib. There’s plenty of fun for all.
