As Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, parents and kids are gearing up to celebrate on the weekends before and after the 31st. (Hey, why not wear the costume more than once?) And what better way to celebrate than to throw your own monster bash? We’ve got defrightful decorations, ghoulish goodies, and haunting how-tos galore. Celebrate early and test these ideas out with your kids now, and throwing your next party will be anything but scary—unless you want it to be.

We're also giving away spooky books for every reader, plus tickets to haunts and happenings around the New York metro area. Don’t make a grave mistake–enter now!

Halloween Movies!Host a Hollyweird Halloween Party! Who says all ghost stories have to be spooky? Whether you introduce a gaggle of little goblins to classic Disney fairytales or want to chant, “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!” yourself, there are tons of festive flicks that children of all ages will love. Don’t see your favorites on this list? Tweet us @NYMetroParents and let us know what movie marathons you’ll be witching… we mean, watching!

Halloween Crafts for KidsGet Crafty! Between egg carton bats and trash bag spiderwebs, there are plenty of ways to make your lair look festive with supplies you already have around the house! Let kids help you spook up the joint with jack-o-lantern mosaics and paper cup spiders that you can use year after year.



Dig into this Graveyard CakeCreepy Cakes: You don’t have to be celebrating a Halloween baby’s birthday to enjoy these clever creations. Try a sophisticated and scrumptious pumpkin chocolate chip pound cake, or use specialty cake pans to make a coffin cake or a skull and crossbones pile. Just grab a spoon to use as your shovel and dig in!


Keep Trick-or-Treating Sweet: We know it’s easy to get caught up in the “gimme, gimme!” attitude towards free candy, but proper etiquette goes a long way when your kids are trick-or-treating. Just because they’re dressed like monsters doesn’t mean they have to act like monsters! We’ve got a few tips on reminding children to focus on why the holiday is a treat instead of getting wrapped up in the tricks.
