Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt
Make the trick or treating fun last longer by also completing a scavenger hunt while you are out around the neighborhood.
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.
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
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.

This one is pretty self-explanatory but there are lots of different ways to do it. You could use a pumpkin from the supermarket, buy a new one online or even carve out a whole bunch of pumpkins using cardboard templates.
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.
