Ah October!  A month dedicated to playing dress up in fun (or spooky!) costumes, watching scary movies and candy! If your family is planning a Halloween party, not only are you one of our hero’s, you’ve got a ton of fun on the way! We love finding ways to get our kids involved in everything! Especially crafts and foods! These are some of our favourite, spooky party ideas.

Halloween Decorations

Creepy music and dimmed lights or spiders and ghosts? Whatever the theme of your Halloween party, we’re sharing some great Halloween decoration ideas and Halloween crafts which will get you in the Halloween spirit!

Spider Webs: With some Elmer’s glue, glitter and a few sheets of wax paper, these webs are easy to make. Using the glue, draw out the shape of the web and sprinkle it with glitter. Let it sit overnight and shake off the excess glitter, allowing it to sit and harden for another two days.

Bloodyhands

Bloody Handprints: While you might not want to use your best guest towels for this, your kids will definitely love this craft.  Get them to help by dipping their hands in red paint and leaving their “bloody” handprints on a towel.

Bats

Hanging Bats: Using black craft foam and some googly eyes, these bats can be hung outside or attached to staircases or walls. A complete tutorial and template can be found here.

Jars

Halloween Lanterns: These great mummy and pumpkin lanterns are sure to light up your Halloween party. This tutorial will provide you with step by step instructions and is another example of fun DIY mason jar crafts.
