If you’re planning a Halloween event, you will need to think of a range of activities suitable for a wide range of age ranges.

Children’s activities for a Halloween event
When planning children’s activities for any event it’s important to consider the broad spectrum of children you might encounter. And plan to meet a wide range of requirements. For a Halloween event, you also have to consider the age and maturity of the children. Here are some top children’s activities for a Halloween event:
- Pumpkin decorating- who can resist decorating a pumpkin? Avoid health and safety issues and let children paint and decorate a pumpkin, instead of carve one. You can even have pre-carved pumpkins for the children to select from if you have some spare time beforehand. Either way, glitter, paint, and sequins can result in a stunning pumpkin. Why not give a prize to the best dressed pumpkin? And best of all, this activity is suitable for children of all ages to enjoy and take part in.
- Costume parade- Let your guests show off their costumes in Halloween costume parade. You can even choose prizes for the most imaginative costumes!
