    • Retro Kids' Party

      Remember the parties from your childhood with cleverly crafted decorations, fun crafts, and imaginative games? This Halloween, bring back your old handmade and heartfelt favorites.

    • Whoo's Invited?

      Use scrapbooking papers and our patterns to assemble this wise owl invitation, which will spread the word on all the party details.

    • Kid-Approved Feast

      Treat party guests to a fun table with handmade decorations. Serve yummy (and easy!) kids' favorites, such as cheese sandwiches, celery sticks with peanut butter, grapes, and orange juice.

    • Lunch Box Special

      Make serving easy by prepacking a personalized lunch box for each guest. The embellished paperboard boxes also double as take-home favors.

    • Doubled-Up Glasses

      Each glass features two different decorations: a paper owl and a cute name tag (no confusing which cup belongs to whom). Slide the decorated cup into another clear cup to protect the retro artwork.

    • Easy Place Settings

      Skip the party store's usual paper goods, and make your own with a stash of clear plastic plates. Then transform colorful-patterned scrapbooking paper into whimsical table decorations.

    • Easy Centerpiece

      Prop these colorful paper-crafted Halloween tags attached to painted crafts sticks in vases full of popcorn.

    • Funny-Faced Finish

      End the meal with season-appropriate caramel apples. The jack-o'-lantern facial features are cut out from fondant and stuck onto prepared caramel apples. You can opt to serve them as dessert, or wrap the apples in clear treat bags to send home as favors.

    • Game Time

      Use these paper-and-felt-decorated paint cans for a simple game of beanbag toss. Young players toss beanbags into the buckets, counting points by the numbers on the owls' tails. (See next slide for directions on making beanbags.)

      Custom Beanbags

      Petite pyramid-shape beanbags fit easily into pint-size hands. The appliquéd game pieces will outlive the party and can be added to your kids' toy box once the festivities are over.

      Play the Game

      Let kids take turns tossing the pyramid-shape beanbags into the owl buckets. Mark a designated throwing line along the floor with masking tape.

      What a Face

      End the party on a quieter note with a Mr. Potato Head-style pumpkin craft, which takes a little bit of preparty prep. Make the mix-and-match facial features and hats before the party. Paint small pumpkins in different colors and place adhesive fabric dots on the backs of the face pieces. Let kids pick from the premade parts to assemble their imaginative pumpkin pals.

      Craft with Ease

      By putting the fabric dots on the pieces beforehand, you eliminate the need for messy glue during the party.
