Slumber Parties are a blast, and this Halloween Slumber Party will be no exception. This party will be one your kids (and their friends) will never forget. Hopefully this can be a tradition your kids will look forward to every year.
Get creative with these invitations; they will be a lot of fun to do and will definitely get your guests super excited about your upcoming slumber party. On card stock, you can draw a pillow or gravestone and write: R.I.P. “Hey, Don’t be a Zombie!” You’re Invited to My Halloween Slumber Party…
Next to your address, make it sound scary (THAT SCARY HOUSE AT THE TOP OF THE HILL or THE HOUSE NO ONE CAN ESCAPE or WHERE THE WITCHES AND WARLOCKS LIVE).
By your phone number, you can write: The phone lines has been cut for years, but try our cell number instead (if you dare).
Trick or Treating
Trick or Treating is the best part of Halloween for kids. To make it extra special, since it’s a Halloween slumber party, have each child carry a pillowcase for their candy instead of a bag or pumpkin. They can decorate their pillowcases in advance with their names and a scary scene. If Halloween falls on a weekday and you are having the sleepover the weekend before, you could go to a local Haunted House on the night of your slumber party, then follow it up with Halloween games at home.
Turn regular games into spooky games for Halloween. Play charades with scary movie themes. Give everyone a witch hat and play musical broomsticks instead of musical chairs. Play “Night of the Living Dead” and turn a game of chase into a hilarious (and video worthy) zombie style game where everyone has to walk like a zombie. Fill pillow with bags of cotton candy for one delicious pillow fight.
With all that candy to eat, they probably won’t be that hungry, but just in case, here are some ideas for some tricky treats. Make pimento cheese sandwiches on pumpernickel bread and cut into shapes of cats, ghosts, or bats. Empty out gourds to make a bowl and fill with nuts or fruit such as grapes, berries, apples, etc. For breakfast, you can make muffins with gummy worms and top with fake spiders.
Play Halloween music in the background and keep scary movies going on T.V. Put out flashlights and Halloween books and tell ghost stories right before bed (not that there will be much sleeping). Be sure to put a few fake spiders in their sleeping bags when they aren’t looking for that one last surprise right before bed.
The only thing more fun than a slumber party is a Halloween slumber party.
