Throwing a Halloween Party for Preschoolers

Throwing a Halloween Party for Preschoolers at Kids 'R' Kids Mableton, preschool, daycare, childcare, learning academy

It’s time to throw your preschooler a party to show them what Halloween is all about! Invite the entire class or the neighborhood over, and you’ll be the spookiest parent around. If you’re planning on hosting a Halloween party, these things are a must for success:

Spooky music

Every Halloween party needs some fun music! The Monster Mash is a fan favorite! Break out the black lights and glow sticks, turn down the lights, and crank up the tunes! It’ll be a smash hit! Party-goers of all ages will love it!

Delicious treats

What’s a Halloween bash without yummy treats? Halloween is full of potential for themed snacks like ghost cookies or spiders made out of marshmallows and pretzels! Feeling really festive? Get some bags of candy corn and candy pumpkins, frosting, holiday sprinkles, and plain cupcakes/cookies to let your guests decorate their own treats! What a BOO-tiful idea!


This is where the little ones can get in on the party planning excitement—spend some time making Halloween crafts and hang them up all around your home. You can even get really into the Halloween spirit and decorate like a haunted house with streamers, balloons, and anything you’re your little trick-or-treaters want.

Scavenger hunt

If you want to make your party more interactive, plan a scavenger hunt. Hide your spooky clues in fun, easy to reach places and plan a yummy prize for the winner—like a chocolate candy apple.

Read a “scary” story

There are tons of cute and appropriate Halloween stories online or at the bookstore.  Have your child and all their friends gather around, turn the lights down low, and use your best spooky voice to tell a scary story that will have everyone giggling.
