Budget Friendly Halloween Party Ideas for Kids

I had the pleasure of hosting a cute little group of "ghouls" for this Halloween party. I wanted to keep this party one of traditional Halloween fun with lots of orange and black colors, bats, spiders, and pumpkins. Nothing gruesome or scary, just fun and cute! 

Black and orange crepe streamers and balloons hung from the chandelier and ceiling. Dollar Tree is a great place to find balloons and streamers! All tableware was orange and black. Halloween Bingo cards purchased from Target Dollar Spot were at each place setting ready for the little "ghouls". Prizes were colorful skeleton pens, stretchy skeletons, Halloween stamps, and stickers also from Target Dollar Spot. If you are sensing a trend here, you are correct. Target Dollar Spot has the cutest Halloween goodies! Dollar Tree is another favorite for Halloween prizes and goodies.

Other party activities included making slime. Yes, it's messy, but kids love it! We did take this activity outside. This was the only part of the party that wasn't orange and black. We made sparkly pink slime. Only 3 ingredients are needed for this slime recipe. Elmer's pink glitter glue, 1 1/2 Tbsp. of saline contact solution, 1 Tbsp. of baking soda. Mix, knead and play. I did add some little plastic spiders to the slime also. 

Another activity that we did was the spider race. I had little pom pom spiders and the girls used a paper straw to blow their spider down the table to the finish line. An easy, inexpensive, yet fun game! This would also be great for a classroom party too. You could also have the kids make the pom pom spiders from yarn and add some stick on eyes.

And of course, no traditional Halloween party is complete without a pinata! You can find really good deals on pinatas at the end of season. I got this pumpkin pinata for $1 the prior year! Fill with candy and cute little prizes from Target Dollar Spot or the Dollar Tree and you have yourself a fun and inexpensive activity.
