A bunch of pumpkins with text over them.
I love helping our our kid’s classes with parties and throwing our own parties, so today I am sharing 5 ideas for a Halloween party…

1- {For kids} Measure a pumpkin and do the math… 
Weigh it with seeds, weight it after you take the seeds out.  Weigh the seeds alone (with the “goop”)

2- Make Happy Pumpkins: 

3- Take in some FUN fall foods for the kids to snack on! 


4- {KIDS} Make an apple or pumpkin craft:

4.  {GAME} Make a mummy craft… but do it blindfolded & see who has the best one!

6-  Decorate with Glowing Dough
7- Make a Candy Corn Tree to put on your table.

Host a bake-off!  My friend Samantha hosts a bake-off every year.  We each bring a dish and she supplies the ‘dinner’    A few dinner ideas…  Run over to Walmart and check out the new Farm Rich Smokehouse line.  The heat & serve lineup is awesome for a party (they are only $6.97, so you can’t go wrong there).   They are perfect for even those picky eaters among us!

Here are a few suggestions of what you can serve at your party:

  • Pulled Beef Brisket in a Sweet & Smoky BBQ Sauce
  • Pulled Pork BBQ
  • Double Rubbed Dry Smoked Pork
  • Double Rubbed Dry Smoked Chicken

I’m heading to my local store later this month to try these products out in person. I’m will be sharing a great recipe and another party idea for you!

P.S. Don’t shop without this $1 coupon.

  1. Such cute ideas for a Halloween party! I’m going to make some of the crafts with my niece. She would love the pumpkins with the big googly eyes. Thanks for sharing.

  2. We bought “googly eyes” for small pumpkins this year to keep from having a giant mess. Such a good idea!

  3. What a lovely way to entertain while educating kids! We’ll have so much fun doing these together. Thanks for sharing these wonderful ideas.

  4. All of your pumpkin crafts are so cute! I love the googly eyed pumpkin! I did that one peeking out of white cups. It’s too cute. Also, the mummies are too adorable! Love them all!

  5. So many cute ideas! I really love the glow in the dark ones! These will be perfect for my Halloween dinner party!

  6. Great ideas! I’m actually hosting a halloween party for my son’s first birthday, but I hadn’t thought to buy googily eyes for the pumpkins that they’ll be decorating…THANKS!!!

  7. Great ideas and I like that I can do all of them with my little ones! This year we painted pumpkins rather than carved them and let me tell you that was so much easier!!

  8. Love this round up of great ideas. The glow in the dark dough would probably be a favorite with our little ones.

  9. I homeschool so these ideas are perfect for me. We will be trying the glow dough.

  10. First, let me just note that I love you centered your post around younger children! All of the ideas are adorable but the Glowing Dough has to be my absolute favorite. Thank you for sharing new ideas with our family this year.
