Halloween Classroom Party Ideas

Halloween Class Party Ideas

Note: most ideas can be adjusted for any grade.

Setting up Stations:

Setting up stations is a must for any Halloween class party. If you have stations, you can come up with 4-5 different activities and rotate the kids through to each. This way, each parent and activity only have 5-6 kids at a time. This helps to ease the crazy excitement the kids are feeling with Halloween and treats. I’ve listed several ideas for your Halloween stations including games, crafts, treats and stories to read!

Halloween Party Craft Ideas

Crafts to Create:

  • Spider Lacing Cards: Cut out a large paper circle or you could use a paper plate. Have the children punch holes around the edge of the paper and thread yarn through each of the holes for a spider’s web. Give each of the kids a plastic spider ring to add to the web!
  • Thumbprint Pumpkin Cards: Using stamp ink and the kids’ thumbs, have the group make these fun and festive cards. This is a great activity for a small group station!
  • Halloween Printables: Here are a few fun Halloween coloring pages or paper finger puppets to print out.
  • Halloween Party Masks: Set out all sorts of fun crafty embellishments for the kids to make and craft their own party mask to wear. Feathers, beads, or even googly eyes, perfect for a Halloween class party.
  • Pipe Cleaner Yarn Spiders: Gather pipe cleaners and yarn, and 2 googly eyes to wrap, bend, and glue together this cute little spider. Once these spiders are made, you could use them to hide around the classroom for a fun hide & seek game.
  • Paper Bag Puppets: How fun and festive are these puppets? You can make these for the kids to create a little puppet show for the class!

Halloween Party Game Ideas

Games and Activities: 

  • Monster Flip Book: Each child in the group could create their own monster. Put them all together and create a group flip book. This would be fun to keep in the classroom for the kids to look at and enjoy!
  • Get Mummified: Using toilet paper, wrap the kids up like a mummy. You could have 2 toilet paper rolls and have a contest to see who can wrap from head to toe the fastest.
  • Kid-Sized Spider Web: This giant web would be a great activity for a classroom setting. Just clear out some space and use the classroom chairs.
  • Monster House Memory Game: Kids love the game of memory, so create a big giant one with a poster board haunted house and some cute monsters!
  • Mix and Match Pumpkin Faces: have the children make different shapes for the Jack-o-Lantern face and with velcro, they can play a “pin on the pumpkin” type game!

Halloween Party Treat Ideas

Treats to Make:

  • Candy Haunted Houses: I’ve had a parent do candy houses with my class, but each graham cracker house was hot glued together prior to the kids getting them. Then all the kids did was use the frosting to decorate it with candy. They loved it, but was a little messier. This could be done instead of decorating a cookie or cupcake.
  • Jack-o-Lantern Cookie Pops: Dip cookie pops in orange candy melts and create a cute jack-o-lantern face! Delish for a Halloween class party!
  • Boo-tastic Rice Crispy Treats: Mix up a batch of Rice Crispy treats and add in a little food coloring to the mix. Hand each child a ball size of treats and along with some candies for decorating, have the kids make pumpkins or goblins.
  • Witch Broom Candies: Give the children some mini Reese’s Peanut Butter candies along with some pretzels and they can make a few fun witch brooms with them.

  2. Thanks Marie to “linking me” in with your great Halloween Classroom ideas! I actually read the Jerry Seinfeld book when I taught lower grades and even they loved it! I have another idea for Zoom Broom so I am going to add it right now! Thanks so much ;)

  3. Just to let you know; white wine vinegar worked fine (instead of rubbing alcohol)for colouring pasta. Absolutely stank but dried really quickly! Thanks so much!
