Throwing a Halloween party can seem like a daunting task. From decor to food to getting the word out, it can take a lot of planning, a lot of money and a lot of tearing your hair out! Or does it?
I first shared these free Halloween party printables three years ago when my kids told all their friends that they were having a Halloween party at our house.
The only problem was they forgot to tell me! Not wanting to spend a fortune, and not wanting to let my kiddos down, I whipped together this printable party pack with everything you need to throw the perfect kids Halloween party.
If you’re a busy parent who wants to throw a great Halloween party for your kids, you can get some huge “Cool Mom Points” by grabbing a few dollar store treats and printing off a free Halloween Party Pack!
First up, how about these super cute invitations?
Just print them out and let your kiddos fill them in! This is a great way to help them work on their writing skills, AND they probably know who they want to invite better than you do!
Print them up on some nice white cardstock and you’ll have easy-to-distribute cards to send with your child to school or send in the mail! Just add the pertinent information on the cards, and you’re all set!
Next up, how cute are these bottle wraps??
Just tape these around whichever little bottles you like. Water bottles can become sought-after treats if they look this cool! Or, buy a variety pack of colored fruit drinks and coordinate with your labels. Zombie Juice looks great on a green bottle!
These can just be printed on plain typewriter paper. Cut them out and tape them onto a small bottle of water, juice or soda, and you can tell the kids they are all sorts of nasty potions! I love to add a few drops of black or blue food coloring into some lemonade to really give it that Zombie Juice look!
Next up are these bewitching cupcake toppers!
If you’re not great a decorating cupcakes (and who is?), these are perfect. Just grab some snack cakes from the store, and place a different topper on each one. The kids just love the funny messages!
These are great for homemade or store-bought cupcakes. So cute and a real crowd pleaser! I suggest printing on cardstock, but you can just as easily use printer paper.
And finally, here are some great straw toppers!
These are a super simple way to add a bit of extra fun to your party. Just fold them in half and attach to your straw with some clear tape! It helps kids keep track of which one is theirs, AND it becomes a fun flag toy when they’re done drinking!
Print them out on regular paper, then fold them in half and tape to the tops of straws. SO adorable!
The dollar store sells some really cute holiday décor you can use to really set the scene. I highly recommend grabbing a few Halloween greeting cards and placing them in some of their dollar frames to complete the party look.
I set up this whole thing including food and drinks for under $30!
A last minute party really doesn’t have to stress you out. If you’ve got a printer and a few dollars, you can throw a very cute Halloween party for your kids.
