Candy Relay

This game is best in teams. Using a large spoon, each person has to carry the candy from one container and tip it into the other container, then pass the spoon to the next team member.  They must try not to spill any on the way as the team with the most candy in their second container wins.

Painted rocks

This is a fun craft for all ages. You can either have the kids paint their rocks or you can paint the rocks ahead of time to save on the mess and drying time.  They can then decorate their rocks by drawing on faces. Be sure to add their name to the underside so they can take their rocks home after the party

Halloween Treat Bags

Decorate your own treat bag.  You will need a selection of colored paper bags, scissors, glue, markers, googly eyes. Perhaps create a few examples beforehand to give some inspiration.

Rock Spiders

These adorable rock spiders are a great craft activity. Paint a selection of rocks black before the party so they are dry and ready to decorate. You will need colored pipe cleaners, googly eyes and paint markers.  We love these Posca paint markers as they give good coverage and dry quickly.

Costume Parade

Get creative by making costumes yourself or buying cheap costume items from shops such as the $2 shop and Target. The best thing about doing this is that they don’t need to look perfect because it won’t matter once they’re dressed up. Just remember to keep things simple and avoid anything too scary.
