Trick or treating is an annual tradition in lots of families – so how about making it even more fun with a pre-trick-or-treat party?
Dress up and invite everyone round for games and spooky snacks, then head out on your trick or treat round!
It’s a great way to turn trick or treating into more of an occasion – read on for inspiration!
Inspiration for a pre-trick-or-treat party
Since trick or treating is mostly for younger children, we prefer “spooky-cute” to scary decorations. This Witches’ Crew party range would be perfect – mix and match a couple of decorations to transform your party venue into a spooky soirée.
Serve your party food with bright and colourful partyware (it’s a good idea to serve something substantial before you go out trick or treating so your kids don’t just fill up on sweets!) We love this Witches’ Crew tableware and these skull and cat sippy cups!
These skeleton straws would make a fun addition to your drinks!
And these Halloween party boxes are a great way to serve party food – and can even be prepared the night before the party. Fill each box with snacks the night before and add anything that needs to be prepared fresh later.
No trick or treat party would be complete without sweets! Make sure you’ve got a big bowl by the front door for any trick or treaters who come knocking – and plenty for your party-goers too. We’d suggest filling a big bowl like this with a selection of Halloween themed sweets.
Halloween themed party games are a great way to keep your little ghosts and ghouls entertained before you head out trick or treating. You could play a classic game like apple bobbing, or get a Halloween piñata!
Fill it with sweets and treats, then take it in turns to try and smash it!
Time to go trick or treating!
Last but not least, head out trick or treating! Make sure everyone’s got a bucket to collect their treats and a couple of glow sticks to make sure they can be seen in the dark. And most of all, have fun!
