Tips for Hosting a Fun Filled Halloween Party with Young Children

Halloween Party with Young Children

Halloween parties are fun for all ages. If you are inviting Preschool children, be prepared to be on the go all the time. Small children have an abundance of energy and once they are around children their own age, they are prepared to play.

Small children can be easily occupied if you have the right games and food. So here’s how.

Creative Food Ideas
Preschool children love food. They like to look at it, play with it and eventually eat it. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are easily made and are soft enough to be easily cut into shapes using a cookie cutter. Make bats, ghosts and pumpkins for fun finger foods.
Slices of cake are a lot for a small child to handle.

Make cupcakes that are decorated with a Halloween theme. Search Pinterest for hundreds of ideas on how to make the perfect cupcake. Cupcakes come in a variety of sizes and are excellent for small children to maneuver without making too much of a mess.

Games and Play Time
These kids are just beginning to understand the concept of winning. Choose games where everyone wins that way each child gets a prize and can share in the celebration. Foot races, balloon tosses and face painting are just a few things children can enjoy that burn off excess energy and will keep them occupied for hours.

Young children love color. They love to laugh and they love to learn. Choose games that teach and splash color everywhere. Provide activities that intrigue the mind and allow the body to move freely. These are the elements of a successful Halloween party, which you are planning specially for kids.
