What can you put in party bags for a Halloween party?
Obviously, sweets are great for Halloween party bags, but it would be great to have something else that children can take way from your party, and perhaps something that they can keep. Check out these ideas for Halloween Makes.
Halloween Makes – Fluffy Slime.
My kids and I made Fluffy Unicorn slime a few weeks ago. You could use the same recipe and just change up the colours for Halloween. Why not try orange, blood red, green or purple – they are all great Halloweeny (yes, I am sure that is a word!) colours. Here is the video that we made with the method.
Halloween Makes – Felt Pencil Toppers.
I tried to make some pencil toppers for this post and failed dismally! Haha. Here is the card ghost that I made looking completely shocked at just how awful he looks impaled on a pencil! So, instead, I found this great video on Youtube with 4 different pencil toppers. Well done, Miss Tricks.
Halloween Makes – Lollipop spiders.
Kate and I made these lollipop spiders for a craft fair last November. We found the great eyeball lollipops at B and M Bargains.
To make them:
- Take 4 black pipe cleaners and lay them side by side.
- Lay your eyeball lollipop at the centre and fold the pipe cleaners around it to secure it.
- Spread out the four legs at each side and bend them so that your spider can stand up.
These little fellas really take on a character all of their own once you stand them up. They went down very well at the craft fair. If you do not have eyeball lollipops, you could use any lollipops and stick googly eyes on them instead.
Halloween Makes – Pumpkin Easy Peelers
These were quick and fun to make. Your children would have great fun designing their own. All you need is some small Easy Peelers or satsumas and a Sharpie. You could make loads of different designs. The great thing about these is, of course, that they are a sneaky way of getting children to eat fruit. Mwa, ha, ha, ha!
Halloween Makes – Sweet gloves
Again, these were from a budget shop. I was going to make them and then thought these were perfect. Kate enjoyed making them and they were very quick to do. These also sold very well at the craft fair that we went to. You could make your own using latex gloves and tying at the top with orange or purple ribbon. If you bought some plastic Halloween rings, you could put one on the ring finger.
Halloween Makes – Crochet Pumpkin
You can also find the PDF pattern version as a paid download on my Babyhatbaby Shop on Etsy.
Halloween Makes – Jars and goblets of sweets.
These jars and goblets were only £1 from B and M bargains. John and I went to look last night and they have already got some of these in, along with spooky bags of sweets. They are great fun and we are still using them from last year.

Let me know if you have a Halloween Party – what costume did you wear? What did you eat? Did you make party bags?
See you soon.
