How to Have a Kid-Friendly Halloween Party

Halloween is a holiday filled with ghost, witches, skeletons and very scary monsters. People thrive on the thrill of being scared from watching scary movies and going to theatrically elaborate haunted houses. So how do you have a non-scary Halloween party? Here are some ideas to help you have a fun Kid-Friendly Halloween party without all the horror associated with the screaming, bloody gore and guts Halloween.


Have a party that is centered around the autumn season.

A party that is about autumn rather than Halloween can still have costumes. Have guests focus their costumes on the autumn theme. When you think of autumn things like colorful leaves, apples, maybe going to a farm to pick pumpkins. You are still including a lot of the same Halloween party items without the scare. If you plan on doing a lot of walking this fall or around the Halloween season, give yourself a good pair of shoes! I love Converse.

Have a party centered around a favorite movie of the year.

Pick a popular movie that isn’t a blood and gore movie and have everyone dress as their favorite characters. Some of the hit movies include Star Wars Awakening, Captain America Civil War, Zootopia and Finding Dory. If you choose a movie theme you can have a fun party without being scary and having all the scary costumes. Ericdress offers a ton of accessories for a great price!

Have a kid friendly Halloween party and ask your guests to dress up as their favorite kid movie character or any costume that is kid friendly. You make the rules for your party. You can tell everyone that you want to have a positive and kid-friendly party with no scary costumes. Decorate your party with fun Halloween decorations and leave the zombie decor at the store.

Halloween doesn’t have to be a scary nightmare inducing event. A family friendly Halloween party is perfectly fine. Ultimately, you decide what kind of party you want and don’t let anyone bully you into doing something you don’t want to do. Make your Halloween party a positive and fun experience for everyone.
