If your child's birthday is on Halloween, you can give them a Halloween themed party to go along with the holiday. Make it a costume party by asking all the guests to wear their Halloween costumes. Follow the tips below, and your child will have a great party that all the kids can enjoy.
Bowls of Gross
Set up bowls on a table. In one bowl fill it full of cooked spaghetti noodles to use for intestines. Add a little water to each bowl, and then add a little red food coloring to make it look like blood. Call this bowl Zombie Intestines. In a second bowl, put some peeled grapes in it and call them Zombie Eyes. In a third bowl, put the rind of a cantaloupe and call it Zombie Brains. Hang a blanket in front of the table and cut holes in front of each bowl. Let the kids stick their hands through the holes and stick them into the bowls. Tell them what they are feeling. They will likely be grossed out, but find it fun also.
You will have to have food at the party, and you can have more than just the standard Halloween candy. Make some cupcakes and put orange frosting on them. Put a plastic spider on top of the icing. You could also use black icing to draw a spider web on the icing. Make some Frankenstein finger cookies, and a Halloween cake. You can find many molds in Halloween shapes, such as a witch, pumpkin, or ghost. Decorate it with orange and black icing.
Make some bloody soda for the kids to drink. Simply mix together one cup of corn syrup, 15 drops of red food coloring, 1 ½ tablespoons of vanilla extract, and one liter of lemon lime soda. Add some peeled grapes to the bottom of each glass to make the drink even creepier.
Set up your laptop and play some spooky Halloween music. If you are having a very large party, you can hire a DJ (from companies like DJ services by Prairie Mobile Music) to come to your home to play the music for you. Ask the DJ to bring songs like Monster Mash, The Witch Doctor, Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead, and more. Make sure you set up an area for the DJ to set up their equipment. Ask them how much space they need. You will likely need to set up a table for them to set their equipment on. Some equipment they may bring includes a laptop, DJ controller or mixer, and speakers. To go along with the party, cover the table with a Halloween tablecloth. As the music is playing, dim the lights a little.
Fix up the kids some treat bags full of Halloween candy. As you hand the treat bags to them at the end of the party, ask the DJ to play the I Want Candy song.
