Throwing a Kid-Friendly Halloween Party
The spookiest holiday of the year is coming up! Why not throw a Halloween party your kids and their friends are sure to love? Invite guests to dress in costumes and enjoy the themed activities you come up with. BounceU can accommodate your Halloween party, and you can even use our fun-filled venue and party packages to enhance the theme you choose! Here are some ideas to spark your creativity.
Monster Mash Halloween Party
Serve cute monster cupcakes, finger sandwiches with olives for eyes and jagged cheese for teeth, and other party food labeled to be extra creepy. For instance, grapes become “monster eyeballs,” licorice becomes “monster hair” and pigs in a blanket become “monster toes.” Add face painting to your party package at BounceU so your party guests can pretend to be monsters as they play around the bounce houses.
Host a party with traditional carnival games tweaked a bit to fit the Halloween theme. For example:
- Bring a jar of Halloween candy and have each child write down how many they think are inside on a slip of paper. Whoever gets the closest wins a prize!
- Spray paint plastic bowling pins white, orange and yellow and play candy corn bowling.
- Modify “pin the tail on the donkey” to become “pin the bow tie on the skeleton” or “pin the nose on the witch.”
- Make cone-shaped “witch’s hats” out of black poster board and play “Halloween ring toss.”
Harry Potter Party
Witches, wizards and Muggles alike will enjoy an afternoon complete with butterbeer, pumpkin juice and golden snitches. Set the mood with candles made out of spray painted paper towel and toilet paper rolls with tea lights on top. Then, serve treats like Bertie Bot’s Every Flavor Beans, Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum and color-changing “potions” made with food coloring. Hand out plastic Harry Potter glasses, magic wands and broomsticks to each guest. The kids will love running around BounceU, casting spells and pretending to play Quidditch.
Haunted House Halloween Party
This classic party theme can be as lighthearted or spooky as you want. BounceU can help create the perfect atmosphere with our Cosmic Bounce package. Ultraviolet lighting and glow-in-the-dark props turn the spooky fun up a notch for your Halloween party. White and neon colors glow under black light, so your guests’ costumes look extra fun!
Murder Mystery Party
For older kids, consider throwing a detective-themed party where guests have to unravel a murder mystery. You can find scripts and stories online that tweens and young teens will love! Leave clues around the BounceU venue for the young sleuths to discover and work out the puzzles together.
BounceU has private party rooms and bounce house arenas to make your upcoming Halloween party the spooky success you’re hoping for.
