What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties. We plan the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food. But we never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute).
And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there. It is then we realize things aren't going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don't get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.

Add a little spice to your party with printable Halloween games for kids, and printable halloween trivia games – like scary movies and zombie trivia – for adults. So many different party games to choose from! How does it work? Each company is a little different but generally you pay for the games and as soon as your payment clears, the company send you a file to download. Then all you need to do is choose and load your paper, print the files, and cut them out. Every company we have ever worked with, always sends clear directions with the files so even if you are a newbie to printable DIY, they make it easy. Continue Reading →

Whether you have children knocking at the door, organizing a classroom party, or are hosting a dinner party for adults, Halloween is one of the year's most fun days to break out the crazy and celebrate. These decorations—hanging bats made of felt, antique drawings of skulls, a baroque candle straight out of a Gothic castle—are so irresistible you’ll bring them out to haunt your home every October. Best yet, they are all available on One Kings Lane for just a fraction of the price you would normally pay – up to 73% off retail price. The catch – the sale ends Sunday 10/14 at 8am PST and items are only available on a first come basis, so products sell out quickly. There have
been quite a few instances when I have puttered too long and by the time I finally committed to the purchase, it was already sold out. I am learning to listen to my gut and buy when something tickles my fancy.
It is not too late to host a monster bash and to pick up almost everything you will need at this sale. Think Halloween invitations, Jack-O-Lantern Candles, Bottle Cap Tic-Tac-Toe, Yard Art, Dish Towels and vintage pull toy centerpieces
Kids love piñatas almost as much as they love candy. So combining a piñata with Halloween trick or treating – how perfect is that! We love these Halloween Piñatas – a scary black cat, a giant flying bat, a witch on a broomstick, an adorable Frankenstein, and a great carved pumpkin.
Halloween Piñatas are not only perfect additions to any party they may be a great alternative for those of you not so into trick or treating, begging for candy by knocking on strangers doors. The fact is that some children really do find the holiday of Halloween scary and overwhelming so inviting a few friends over to your house for a costume party may be just the answer. Send out Halloween invitations, serve Halloween theme food & drink, play Halloween games, offer cute Halloween party favors, have a costume fashion show, and end the festivities with breaking the piñata so everyone walks away with a bagful of candy. This way you also have complete control over the candy and don't have to comb through pillow cases full of yucky unwrapped candy handed out by strangers.
Have a safe Halloween and party hearty!
