3. Host a dance party and learn the moves of Thriller

4. Get out the bean bags and host a scary movie marathon with Netflix's Halloween movies, including family-friendly options and spine-chilling horror. 

5. Organise a murder mystery game night. Check out The Spruce for links to free murder mystery games

Sweet Halloween party food
Get the kids in the kitchen for some Halloween baking. Make a basic butter biscuit dough, then turn them into terrifying treats with some creative decorating. Check out these simple Halloween cookie decorating ideas. Shop our sheet pans and cookie sheets

Can't be bothered to bake from scratch? Buy Chocolate Ripple biccies from the shops and make these Dracula's fang ice-cream sandwiches instead.

Need to cater for vegetarians? Use ready-made mini savoury tart cases to make these bocconcini 'eyeball' tarts with olive 'bugs'.

Halloween cocktails
While the kids enjoy their sugary treats, parents can enjoy the party with a few Halloween cocktails. Perhaps Martha Stewart's vampire vodka cocktail complete with pomegranate juice 'bleeding' through the mixture. 

For something with more kick, try these spicy and spooky Bloody Marys, also complete with eyeball garnishes using cherry bocconcini and sliced olives. Or, serve them in syringes on a platter as novelty shooters.

If making a fruit cocktail in a bowl, why not fill it with some freaky-looking ice hands for a Halloween party punch. To make them, simply fill a few rinsed disposable gloves with water, tie a knot in the top of each one as you would a balloon, and freeze overnight. 

Happy Howl-oween!
