Providence Children’s Academy is here to share some of our favorite tips and ideas for a fun preschool Halloween party!

Preschool Halloween Party Plans

While there are plenty of holidays and excuses to throw a party for your preschooler, Halloween gives you and them a chance to showcase your creative side! Whether you’re going for a DIY or store-bought approach, every party should start with a solid plan. In the planning process, it is critical to decide on the number of guests you want to invite and your budget. Once these are decided, it’s much easier to decide on ideas.

Halloween Party Ideas For Preschoolers

If you’re planning a Halloween party for preschoolers, you already know it’s essential to keep them busy! Providence Children’s Academy is here to help with some fun ideas sure to keep the kids entertained.


Halloween Food

There are plenty of spooky Halloween-themed foods all over the internet, but we have to make sure that they are safe for preschoolers to eat! Some simple and safe ideas include:

Meatball Mummies

These tasty meatball mummies are almost too cute to eat! Even better, it’s a quick and simple finger food perfect for preschoolers and parents alike! Wrap refrigerated strips of crescent roll dough around premade, cooked meatballs. Bake until the dough is golden brown. Serve with marinara “blood” sauce. Cut in half for younger guests.

Dirt Cup

These adorable dirt cups may bring a sense of nostalgia to parents and couldn’t be easier to make! Make boxes of chocolate pudding as directed. Fold in whipped topping. Place the mixture evenly in individual clear plastic cups. Top with crushed chocolate creme cookies and spooky gummy treats – worms and spiders are a must.

Marshmallow Pops

Move over cake pops! These festive treats are just as tasty without all the work! Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Insert a pretzel stick into each marshmallow. Melt candy melts (orange, purple, and black are always a favorite). Spoon candy melts over marshmallows. Decorate with Halloween sprinkles.

Tangerine Pumpkins And Banana Ghosts

For a spooktacularly healthy treat, try these simple tangerine pumpkins and banana ghosts. Not only are they easy to make, but they’re also easy for preschoolers to eat! Peel tangerines. Cut a stalk of celery into small sticks. Stick celery into the top of each tangerine. Peel and half bananas. Stick two chocolate chips into the bananas to resemble eyeballs.


No preschool Halloween is complete without some spooky games to keep kiddos busy. Crank up the fun with a few of these favorites from Providence Children’s Academy!


Let the good times roll! This easy DIY is sure to be a strike. Paint clean and empty tin cans in festive colors and decorate them with Halloween stickers. Then let the party-goers take turns rolling a tennis ball (or any ball) at the cans. Add numbers to the cans to make it a learning experience!

Pumpkin Chuckin’

Not only is this a perfect game for preschoolers, but it’s also fun for parents, too! Take five jack-o’lantern treat buckets and label them with different numbers of points. Then let the party goers take turns tossing a set number of bean bags. The one with the highest number of points at the end of their turn wins!

Poke A Pumpkin

Not as wasteful and easier to clean up, this easy DIY game is an excellent alternative to your traditional balloon pop game. Save about 20-25 toilet paper tubes. Place a small toy or piece of candy inside each tube. Wrap the tube with orange tissue paper and secure it with a glue stick. Arrange the tubes in a pumpkin pattern on a piece of cardboard and secure each with hot glue. Then let the partygoers take turns poking the through the tubes and claiming their prizes!

Ghost Hunt

A little bit spooky and a whole lot of fun, this game upcycles your leftover Easter eggs! Take leftover plastic eggs and place pieces of candy or small toys inside. Wrap them in white tissue paper. Draw on eyes and a mouth with a marker. Safely place them around your home and/or backyard. Give each preschooler a treat bag, and let partygoers go on a hunt for them!


halloween crafts

All fun Halloween parties for preschoolers require three things: food, games, and crafts! These quick and easy crafts can be completed in about 30 minutes or less. Plus, they serve as the perfect party favor to take home.

Spider Pencils

These spooky but absolutely adorable pencils only take about ten minutes to put together. They make for the perfect quick craft to wind down the night. Take black styrofoam balls and glue on googly eyes. Then, stick four pipe cleaners on each side. Finally, insert the bottom of the styrofoam ball into a Halloween-themed pencil!

Pumpkin Rocks

This cute craft is ideal to start at the beginning of your party, so the base paint has time to dry. Before the party, buy or find pumpkin-shaped rocks. Clean and dry the rocks to remove any dirt or debris. Have your preschool partygoers paint the rocks orange. After the paint has dried, allow them to make jack-o-lantern faces with black paint or markers.

Spiderweb Plates

If you’re looking for a craft that also helps practice hand-eye coordination, this one is perfect! Before the party, hole-punch black or orange paper plates around the edges. Cut white yarn and tie it through one hole. Allow kids to thread yarn as they please to design a web. Tie off yarn to secure. Add foam or sticker spiders.
