Trick or treat—it’s party time! This year, plan a Halloween party at home for ghouls and goblins as an alternative to trick-or-treating—or do both! It's as easy as saying "boo!"
Decorate the house with traditional jack-o-lanterns and Indian corn, or go with a spooky theme and suspend fake cobwebs, bats, and pretend witches. Let kids invite friendly spooks and goblins, turn on scary music, and play a few games while you serve easy-to-prepare, kid-friendly snacks. Enjoy the party!

Decide on devilishly delicious treats
Buy or make guaranteed kid-pleasers such as homemade cookies or a festive cake, brownies, cupcakes and rice crispy treats with orange and black decorations. Honor the occasion with apple- and pumpkin-themed goodies. Or serve a meal with kid-friendly chili, mac 'n' cheese, or sloppy joes, and coleslaw.
