Halloween Party Ideas for Babies and Kids
A classic Halloween party game is to create bowls of nasty feeling objects and to tell a story, with blindfolded children reaching into these bowls to feel an appropriately yucky substance. For example, you tell the story of Zombie Zed Who Walked Even Though He Was Dead. You describe his hair and then put their hands into bowls of cold, cooked spaghetti to let them feel Zed’s hair. (Before I mention that angel hair pasta is actually perfect for this, I should say that this never fails to upset the very young, so stop right here if you’re planning a party for preschoolers!) Got a crowd of 7- or 8-year-olds? Then do this and put the effort into it, because it will be their favorite game of the night! For eyes, peeled grapes or whole olives (no pimentos). For hands, fill a latex glove with gelatin and chill until set. Clean and bleach a chicken bone for a bit of Zed’s skeleton. Think yucky, slimy, and touch. Do not use raw meat or raw eggs though!
