10 Easy Halloween Party Crafts for Kids

| By Layne Quintanilla | Party Crafts and DIY Comments

It’s just about time to start planning your Halloween party for the boys and their friends. Obviously, the kids will be eager to eat piles of candy, but I’ve also found some great activities just perfect for a Halloween party or even a monster theme boy's birthday party. Plenty of these activities could also be made beforehand and hung up as party decorations. The Cupcake Liner Bats and Pumpkin Rocks would be perfect over the fireplace, while the Yogurt Monster Cups fit in on the dessert table amongst the cake and other sweet treats. There are plenty of party activities too, including the Candy Corn Monster Craft for Halloween, the Paper Plate Spiders, WitchCraft, and Spider Activities. The Edible Pumpkin Play Dough, DIY Halloween Surprise Balls, or Franken-SLIME Halloween Favors are just what all the boys will be thrilled to take home after the party has ended.

A Swashbucklin’ Fun Pirate Party

| By Stephanie Keeping | Party Central Comments

Gathering all of your son’s favorite scallywags for a boy’s pirate themed party is a swashbucklin’ fun way to celebrate his 4th birthday!  That’s exactly what Katy and Bennett from Wild and Wanderful did.  Their son Louis had been asking for a pirate party for quite some time, and they were more than happy to oblige.  Katy got to work making an invitation which set the tone for the party decorations…and other scurvy details. Just wait until you see the pirate themed cake and cupcakes, not to mention the treasure chest full of party loot for guests!  Katy and Bennett captured all of the sea-worthy details in their photos.

Thankfully, my confidence has recently been restored thanks to Poise Microliners

| By Stephanie Keeping | Party Central Comments

I had such fun looking at the boy birthday parties this week! I am constantly amazed at the creative themes and decorations that people come up with. The lumberjack/camping party is especially cute and you’ve got to laugh at the evil minion party idea for a two-year-old! You’ll be inspired with the circus party, the airplane themed celebration, and the darling Little Prince party. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Legos continue to thrill boys. Since we’re getting so close to Halloween, I’ve included a black, white and green skeleton party idea, as well as a couple of roundups with crafts and Trick or Treat bags. Enjoy the view!
