If you’re looking for ideas on how to plan the perfect Halloween party for toddlers, look no further! In this blog post, we will provide you with all the information you need to make your child’s Halloween celebration a success. From decorations to food and games, we have got you covered! So get ready to have some fun and put together the best toddler Halloween party ever!
One of the most important things to consider when planning a Halloween party for toddlers is safety. Make sure to remove any potential hazards from your home, such as candles and sharp objects. You will also want to keep an eye on the little ones throughout the party to make sure they don’t get into anything they’re not supposed to.
Another important thing to consider is the age of your guests. If you’re inviting young toddlers, be sure to have plenty of activities and games that are appropriate for their age group. Older toddlers may enjoy more challenging games and activities, so be sure to tailor the party to the ages of your guests.
To start you will need invitations
Get some orange construction paper and draw pumpkins on them that are big enough to write the invitation on. You can draw a silly face on the back of the pumpkin. On the front side you can list the date and time of the party along with the RSVP information.
Put a small note on it for parents letting them know that no scary costumes please. (Since most of the guests will be under age 5.) Your toddler can help by folding them (if necessary) and putting them into envelopes, or, if you just plan on handing them out, he can hand them out with your help.
One of the best ways to set the mood for any party is with festive decorations. For a toddler Halloween party, simple is often best. Stick with classic Halloween colors like black, orange, and purple, and use streamers, balloons, or other props to create an enjoyable atmosphere. You can also dress up your home by putting up spider webs, hanging fake bats from the ceiling, or placing jack-o’-lanterns around the room.

Planning the games will be fun
You can get rubber ducks, write numbers on the ducks that correspond with a gift bag or type of treat they win for picking it. Fill up a kiddie pool about 1/3 of the way and toss the ducks in. The best place to do this activity would be on the porch or in the garage, if it were too chilly.

The next game could be pinning the tongue on the ghost. You can make a larger size ghost and lightly blindfold the children and have them put a tongue on the ghost. For the littler ones you can skip the eye covers, just let them put it wherever. The closest wins a prize (of course give them all treats for trying)

There are many games that you can play with toddlers, including a “Shake the Scaries Out” dance. Kids love to move and with music playing, they will have a blast! You can get coloring pages and have them color pumpkins, ghosts, witches and hats. You can get felt hats from the craft store and have the kids decorate them.
Making mummy crafts out of toilet paper rolls , or having a parade where everyone walks around wearing their costumes . You could even put together a scavenger hunt where kids have to find different objects hidden around the house related to Halloween (e.g., candy corn, spiders). All it takes is a bit of imagination and creativity!
Now with the food you can do so many fun things
To make “Creepy Crawler Cupcakes”, all you need is some cupcakes, chocolate frosting, crumbled up chocolate cookies and some gummy worms. Mix the frosting and the cookies together. Frost the cupcakes, adding the worms as you go, covering them up with a light covering of the frosting mixture. For a few more yummy treats you can make the kids, try looking at a few of the recipe site for kid friendly ideas. Monster eye Cupcakes, Halloween Marshmallow Pops and cake pops are all treat the toddlers will love.
For treats, you can offer healthy options such as a juice box, trail mix, stickers, small toys (you can buy many in bulk for very cheap), and fruit. Coloring books and crayons are also a big hit amongst the little ones. Make sure every child leaves with a bag of goodies for coming to your wonderful party!
With these tips in mind, you should be well on your way to throwing an amazing toddler Halloween party! Be sure to enjoy it along with your little guests and have lots of spooky fun!
