It goes without saying that there should be treats at any Halloween party, but what really makes it a special (and scary) occasion are the decorations. Go all out creating a Haunted House complete with unexpected surprises. Spooky games will help to set the ghoulish mood.
To play “Mummy Wrap,” all you need is a roll of toilet paper. The kids will have a blast wrapping each other up. Or else you can try bobbing for apples or play “Pin the Ghost on the Haunted House.”
You might even have the kids decorate their own Halloween cookies or design custom trick-or-treat bags. Of course, you can carve pumpkins into scary or silly faces. Or else let the kids use magic markers, glitter glue and feathers to decorate them. Don’t forget about a contest for best costume or a Halloween parade.
We hope these ideas will help inspire you and your readers to throw a spooky and fun Halloween party this year. For more Halloween party ideas, be sure to tell your readers to check out the brand-new Halloween tab on Kraft Food’s Facebook page.

Try making some Mummy-Face Pizzas as a fun, tasty appetizer for your guests:
What You Need:
1 plain bagel (3-1/2 inch), cut horizontally in half
2 Tbsp. pizza sauce
2 sticks KRAFT STRING-UMS String Cheese
4 slices black olives
- HEAT oven to 400ºF.
- SPREAD bagel halves with sauce. Pull cheese into thin strips; place in random criss-cross fashion on tops of bagels to resemble mummy bandages. Trim ends with kitchen shears. Add olives for the eyes.
- PLACE on baking sheet.
- BAKE 10 min. or until bagels are crisp and cheese is melted.
