Trick-or-Treat Party

October 24, 2012 at 4:55 PM 2 comments

The idea of attending a party is exciting for a child; add the element of being disguised in a costume, presto, you have a room full of enthusiasm and energy. To keep the party fun and safe the host needs a party plan. From the moment the children walk into the party until they depart there needs to be activities, games and organization.

Welcome Activity: To set the mood with Halloween spooky music. Start with an open-ended activity for the children to do while waiting for everyone to arrive. An open-ended activity needs little direction and the children can complete it in a short period of time such as: decorate small pumpkins, masks, or paper sacks using markers, glitter, stickers, etc.

    The idea of an opening activity, while waiting for others to arrive, is great! What would you suggest if space is limited?

      Limited space can be a concern. Do you have a suggestion?
      To define areas for an activity a tablecloth on the floor can help. Place the needed items in the middle of the cloth. Have enough supplies for each child or have premade bags of supplies ready for each child. As long as the children can reach the items needed for a project without bumping into one another the size of a room doesn’t matter.
