When it comes to Halloween parties, teenagers can be a tough audience to please. They often want something that is both spooky and fun, without being too childish. However, with a little creativity, it is possible to throw a party that will be a hit with even the most picky teen.

One option is to transform your home into a haunted house. Add spooky props and decorations, and hire some actors to jump out and scare guests.

Another option is to host a Halloween scavenger hunt. Create a list of spooky objects and challenges for teams to complete, and award prizes for the team that finds the most items.

For a less active option, host a horror movie marathon or a costume party. With a little effort, you can ensure that your teen’s Halloween party is one they will never forget.
