A party can be a hit without scaring your wallet too. Themed games, music and crafts are just some of the Halloween activities for kids to use at your party.
If you’re worried about ghouls and goblins showing up, include a line on your party invitation that encourages family-friendly costumes. A simple, “No scary costumes, please,” should make your message clear. Or skip costumes altogether and tell your partygoers ahead of time to wear their play clothes. For kids, any clothes are the right clothes for a party.

Turn off the porch light and don’t answer the door. Enjoy a quiet evening with your family on the couch. Make your family movie night an event with everything from movie tickets to a concession stand. Then settle in for a night of non-scary Halloween movies.
If your kids are a bit older, watch Halloween movies with a dash of scare to them. Just be sure to watch those movie ratings so you’re not the one who’s frightened when the kids see something they’re not supposed to. The trick is to use this night as a quality time treat, whether you’re watching cartoons or something a bit more edgy.

And don’t be afraid to take a more general approach to your decorations. By not being so Halloween specific with carved pumpkins and spooky scarecrows on the front lawn, you can use fall-themed decorations that will last you to Thanksgiving. Get the kids involved in the crafting and turn them into your personal designers for this activity.
