11. Not So Scary Movies

We love a little ambience in the background and while horror movies are popular on Halloween, I think for these fun Halloween party ideas to be good for everyone, we should have some not so scary movies! A Halloween movie night and sweet treats are one of my favorite Halloween party ideas.

Kids Halloween party ideas- not so scary halloween movie blue ray and dvd gremlins, beetle juice, hotel Transylvania 1 and 2, Spookley, Goosebumps 1 and 2
Not so scary movies are great for kids and the whole family. Plus, every party needs a little background noise.

12. Halloween Party Idea: Monster Music

What’s monster music? It’s music like the Monster Mash and Thriller. If you don’t plan on having movies on in the background then you should totally have some fun music. It’s a great way to set a spooky mood and get everyone up on the scary dance floor. Older kids and younger kids will love it! It’s a scary good time!
