5 Halloween Party Ideas
From decorating pumpkins to fall recipes, we can’t get enough of autumn. So today, we’re sharing even more of Learning Liftoff’s editors’ picks for the top snacks, crafts, and other fun activities to include at your Halloween party.
No party is complete without food, but it doesn’t have to be filled with sweets just because it’s Halloween. Try tricking your guests with a healthy, festive twist on your party snack by layering fruits to resemble candy corn. Other options could include clementine pumpkins, or Little Frankies.
It’s always fun to have outdoor decorations for any holiday, but think of all of the doors in your house that you can use to really set the mood. These fun Halloween doors are a great way to add that little something extra to make your party one to remember.
Tie in the classic “Trick or treat. Smell my feet” poem by using this free printable, and setting up a paint station where kids can stamp their feet. Make sure to have this activity outside, or with a dropcloth and washing station nearby to avoid feet stamps EVERYWHERE!

You can fill goody bags with some Halloween candy, or you can give guests a craft to go home with. Try scooping out a pumpkin and make pumpkin seed necklaces. Be careful though! This activity may only be suitable for older kids since it requires sharp utensils, so try using colored beads for younger ones.
