Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, we love everything about it-including classroom parties! We both help at our children’s school, meaning we often plan or participate in the class parties. Halloween is one of the best class parties to help plan because there are so many ideas! We decided we would put together some of our favorite ideas for you, so if you are needing to plan a classroom party this year…this is the place for you! Our teachers like to have stations at the parties, so we have designed this party with 4 stations which move every 10-15 minutes…so we have given you 4 ideas for a perfect Halloween party!
We’ve got a couple of fun Halloween class party game ideas, a craft idea and a snack.
What’s in the “Bag of Tricks” Halloween Class Party Game:
This “Bag of Tricks” halloween game is so fun! I (Danetta) first saw it done by my sister (I told her I would give her a shout out) and I thought it was such a fun idea! Halloween calls for a little gross, and a little mystery and this game has both. You probably have most everything you need in your pantry which makes it even better.
- Paper Sacks
- Free Printables (Found in this post)
- Mini Marshmallows
- Baby Pickle
- Candy Corn
- Faux Fur
- Slivered Almonds
- Coconut Shavings
- Fabric Piece
The idea of this game is that you put items in bags and the kiddos have to reach into the bag without looking and feel the items. After feeling them, they try to match them with a list of “ghoulish” things! This game is all about letting the kid’s imagination go crazy…and then watch them squirm as they get courage up to reach their hands in the bag looking for “Frankenstein’s brain” or a “witch’s nose.”
We have given you everything you need for this game (well, you’ll need the bags and the stuff to go inside)…the instructions, answer key, numbers for your bags, and the sheets for the kids to put their guesses on! Just print them off…and have fun!
Here’s a peek at what’s included:
Halloween Scavenger Hunt Game:
Here’s another fun game to play for Halloween, a Halloween Scavenger Hunt. And this one is super easy too!
The idea here is that you will print out some Scavenger Hunt boards for the kids to use. Then we’ve got little cards with cute characters for you to cut out and hide either in the classroom or around the school or your house or wherever you are throwing the party. The kids will have to go around and find each of the Halloween characters and mark them off on their board. When they find them all, they win!
Here’s the things you need to print:
Halloween Monster Bag Kid’s Craft:
We always include a craft station at our parties, the kiddos love it and they get to be creative! Our number one rule with crafts is to keep it simple!! This helps you keep your sanity and the kids love simple, and easy crafts. This craft is super fun and simple, decorating snack bags. All you need is some basic craft supplies-pompoms, pipe cleaners, stickers, googly eyes, foam shapes, pattern paper, glue sticks, and of course colorful paper sacks. Let the kids get creative and design their own personal treat bag. They will love it!!
Aren’t these little guys cute? This couldn’t be simpler and it will keep the kids busy using their imaginations!
Halloween Monster Munch Snack:
Here’s a simple snack idea for the party. It’s a mixture of all sort of things kids would like mixed up in a trail mix style mix. You really can add anything you want to this mix. We’ll share a few of our ideas, but use whatever works for you! We thought this would be a good one because you could have parents from the class send in different items and then all you need to do is mix them up in a big bowl or cauldron:
Here’s some ideas to put in it:
- Witch’s Fingers-Bugles
- Skeleton Bones-Pretzels
- Fingernails-Candy Corn
- Chocolate Covered Nuts or Chocolate Chips-Moles
- Gummy Worms
- Gummy Eyeballs (found in the Halloween section at the store)
- Edible Eyeballs (candy ones in the baking section)
- Fingers-Corn Puffs
What other ideas do you have? We’d love to hear!
Now a fun idea would be to fill your little monster bags with the monster munch and read a story!
Here’s a couple of fun Halloween story ideas of you need some:
- Big Pumpkin
- Scaredy Cat Splat
- Click Clack Boo
- Room on the Broom
- It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Have FUN throwing this party!
