Kids Halloween Party Decoration Ideas


You can certainly buy a ton of Halloween decorations at the various Party and Discount stores but using a little creativity to dress up your existing home decor to have a Halloween flair can be the most fun of all.

If you are throwing this party for toddlers and young kids, don’t make the decorations too scary. You don’t want the kids afraid to go into a room of the house during the party. Stick with the familiar Halloween images like friendly ghosts, witches, and pumpkins. If your kids are older than 5 years old, you can get a little spookier with cobwebs, rats, monsters, and mummies.

Don’t feel like you have to use only orange and black in your color scheme. Throw in some deep purples, neon green or yellows into your decorating scheme. Most of your decorations for the table can be the food itself. If you plan on making some Halloween themed treats, then your food can take center stage for the table decorations.

Here are some of our ideas for creating some super easy, spooktacular decorations for your next kids Halloween Party. Your kids can help you make a lot of these, so it’s Family Fun time as well.

  • Buy black masks and put them on your pillar candles so that they look like mysterious bandits. Or you can make them with black construction paper. Use ribbon or string to tie the mask to your pillar candles.
  • Make some “Scarrots!” Put full size carrots upside down in black candlestick holders to look like candles. Add googly eyes for a scary, yet very funny decoration.
  • Use old trick or treat bags or small decorative treat bags to hold candy or Chex Mix as snacks around the room.
  • kids halloween artwork

  • We like to take the kids artwork from the last few Halloweens and hang them around the house as our decorations. It’s cute, not too scary, and reminds the kids of what they made last year.
  • Let the kids draw ghosts and pumpkins on the windows with window markers before the party.
  • Halloween decorations

  • Take some muslin cloth cut into 1” strips or gauze and wrap it around objects in your house to make them look like a mummy. Vases, tall candlesticks, and plant bases are all great objects to wrap. Have the kids add googly eyes and you have some funny Mummy decorations.
  • Mexican Day of the Dead Papel Picado decorations

  • We like to use the colorful Mexican Day of the Dead paper cutouts for Halloween decorations too. The bright pink, blue and yellow tissue paper cutouts feature scenes from everyday life but with skeletons. You can order them from this site or this one.
  • Piñatas are a fun decoration and activity for the party. You can find some great Halloween piñatas here.
  • If the party is for older kids, top off glasses with red cake gel to look like dripping blood.

  5. Two ideas I always use at my kids parties are to use black card, large enough to cover your window, and then cut out a ghost shape.

    The other idea is to tape over your front door with orange tape and get the kids to make a ‘Beware’ sign.

  8. Thank you

    I use a micro SD card between my laptop and netbook as an external hardrive for my class files. I often download files on one computer or the other without the drive in that computer. Is it possible to set my computer up so that when I insert my drive…

  9. I have some question

    The template I made doesn’t have any code in it about the navbar. I’d like to bring it back. What code do I put in to show the Navbar in blogger?.
