10 top Halloween tips for kids

Here at Bop till you Drop we see a wide variety of themes for kids parties and with Halloween coming, we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite Halloween party tips. You can find these and many more on our Pinterest account.

Halloween tip 1: Monster cookies

Monster in nature and not in size. These chocolate chip biscuits are bound to be a hit! We think that a quick version would be to grab some ready made chocolate biscuits, chocolate icing, and white chocolate buttons. Hand them over to the kids and let them decorate their own monster faces.

Halloween tip 2: Black Cat Costume

You can hear it now, “Can we go Trick or Treating, please?” and dread fills you when realise that they don’t have a costume. Here’s a quick Halloween costume idea to have you out the door while it’s still daylight.

Halloween tip 3: Pom pom spider

There’s something about spiders which just screams… Halloween. Thankfully this spider craft will not have your little one screaming.

Halloween tip 4: Paper pumpkin craft

After spiders, and perhaps witches, the next most popular Halloween symbol is the pumpkin. Make these paper strip pumpkins and even add some stick on face parts such as lips or crazy eyes.

Halloween tip 5: Pumpkin door hanger

This door hanger is a fun way to get into the Trick or Treat spirit but also handy if you don’t want the constant interruption; a small wording change of “Please take one” will have dinner uninterrupted and tricks away from your yard!

Halloween tip 6: Haunted lunch box

Most years, Halloween falls on a weekday and so why not bring the fun of the day into their lunch box?

Halloween tip 7: Pin the spider game

This is a great twist on the Pin the tail on the donkey game and it’s also great for kids who might be too young or families who don’t want to go out Trick or Treating but want to have some Halloween fun at home.

Halloween tip 8: Friendly & soft ghost craft

Who said ghosts were scary? This ghost craft is great for little fingers, building their fine motor skills and having fun with glue and cotton wool (you can imagine the fluffy fingers) at the same time.

Halloween tip 9: Healthy Halloween snacks

Halloween doesn’t have to mean chocolate and lollies and it certainly doesn’t have to mean missing out on the fun of Halloween if your children don’t or can’t eat these foods. So we love these Halloween themed snacks.

Halloween tip 10: Class gift

For those who like to give class room gifts or for P&F fundraising, these lolly ghost pops are a cute and fun idea for the kids to bring Halloween to school.

  • We just hired Bop till you Drop to do a virtual birthday party for my 8 year old and I was soooo impressed. They did it through zoom, but they must have used professional equipment as the sound and image was amazing. Cathy the host was so friendly, energetic and full of life. My daughter and her friends loved it and didn’t want it to end. It was so nice seeing all the girls and boys on screen dancing and laughing. Cathy made my daughter feel so special. At first she was disappointed that she couldn’t have all her friends over, but by the end she was thanking me and even asked if we could do the same party next year. Thank you Bop till you Drop, you guys are a life saver!!!

  • Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for Emily’s Bop Till You Drop 5th Bday Disco party on the weekend. Lexi was amazing!! She kept the kids engaged and entertained throughout the whole party, and the disco was an absolute hit with the kids (and parents!). Lexi transformed our lounge room with her disco lights and everyone had a ball singing on the microphones, playing party games and showing off their best dance moves. The birthday girl was so happy her favourite songs were played and she felt the centre of attention. Also wonderful that even with her recently broken arm, Emily was able to join in all the games, singing, dancing and activities – in fact I think she completely forgot she had a broken arm! Have already heard from a number of parents that their kids would now like a disco party too. And of course Emily loved the party so much she wants to do the same thing next year! Thanks again.

  • Our daughter and her friends had the most wonderful time at her 5th Birthday party with the help of Bop till you Drop. Our gorgeous host kept all the kids engaged and partying on. We had so many compliments from friends on how good the entertainment was and how much fun they were all having.

  • We have just had the best school disco in years! All the kids enjoyed themselves and the energy and excitement from both Stacey and our students was amazing. All students from Kindy to Year 6 had a wonderful night, being able to get up on stage to dance and sing to their favourite song was great to see, Stacey did an amazing job! Thank you! We can’t wait to have BTYD back!
