I have always loved Halloween parties. The atmosphere, the costumes, the treats and yes, even the tricks are so much fun and I love scary costumes! I also love theme parties. It’s so cool to have a specific theme for a party. So I thought it would be even more fun to have a theme Halloween party.

I put together this list of 10 Halloween party themes for kids just for my readers.

  1. DIY Costume Party- it doesn’t matter what you decide to be, as long as the costume is homemade.

  1. During October we have Halloween themed family movie nights. We make snacks and pick our favorite Halloween movies.

  2. Themed parties sound like a lot of fun! I would love to host a superhero party or even a haunted back yard party. That would be a blast!

  3. I love the idea of a Jack o Lantern party! I think that would be a lot of fun for the kids and for me!

  4. I think a monster mash would be tons of fun. I have seen lots of “gross” recipes for Halloween on Pinterest lately and they would all work together for the food at a party like that!

  5. I haven’t had a real party in years. Halloween would be a great time to throw one. Thanks for the ideas!

  6. I like the make your own costume. Can you imagine what people might come up with. Could be funny.

  7. I like the idea of the Monster Mash party best. My older sister would go for the superhero party, while my younger sister would fit right in with the Royalty. My brothers would join the cupcake party right away. Good ideas, all.

  8. A haunted backyard party sounds so fun. My hubby makes a haunted house in the basement every year. 🙂

  9. I’ve always loved DIY costume themes. My sisters and I would do DIY Halloween parties with their kids all the time when I was younger.

  10. Hi Dina,

    Those are some amazing Halloween Party Themes you have picked out for kids this year. I have seen some wonderful Super Hero Costumes added this year for boys and girls that I cannot wait to see on my kiddos. I think we will go with that one 🙂

    Have a great weekend,


  11. I like the idea of making a costume party DYI. It forces people to use the creative side of their brain. I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a pre-made costume.

  12. I love theme parties. We throw one every year. This is our 8th year of having them. We go all out.

  13. I’m a huge fan of the decade party theme! 80’s to be exact! Big hair, shoulder pads… awesome music! I’m there!

  14. I have a daughter with a birthday right at Halloween. I cross my fingers and hope for Halloween themes every year! It’s just so much fun.

  15. We don’t do Halloween really but I have a friend who has a Halloween birthday party, so we usually go to her party. 🙂 That means I don’t have to come up with activities with my kids but just tag along with hers. 🙂
