Fun and Frugal Kid-Friendly Halloween Party Ideas:

We're excited to shop the Dollar Tree Anniversary Celebration and plan our fun and frugal kid-friendly Halloween parties.  We put together a family-friendly ghost game and spider craft using feature products from the celebration that would be a hit at any Halloween party.  

Ghost Catch Game for Kid-Friendly Halloween Party:

Tissue ghost craft for game or decoration this Halloween

Grab a 200-ct. Boxes of Scotties® Facial Tissues, one of the Bonus Buys during Dollar Tree's Anniversary Celebration.  Pull out a handful of tissues and roll them up into a baseball size ball.  Gather a tissue around the ball and secure with a small rubber band.  Attach another facial tissue to the rubber band to make the ghost's body.  Use a black marker to draw on a face.  This would be a fun game for preschool or play date parties.  Catch the Ghost, or play Ghost toss (Toss the ghost into a Multi-purpose Baskets or a 5-ct. Packs of Oval Bins--you can get one at the Dollar Tree Anniversary Celebration sale)!!

Spider Craft for Preschool Halloween Party or Play Date:

How to dye pasta for a spider craft. Use dyed noodles for a Halloween spider craft.

We used a handful of noodles from a 24-oz. Bag of Pagasa® Noodles to make these cute spiders.  Toss the elbow pasta in a Hefty® Gallon-Size Zipper Bag with black food coloring and a little squirt of hand sanitizer.  Spread the noodles out on newspaper to dry.  Glue the dyed pasta to a paper around a black circle cut from construction paper.  What a cute craft to send home with the kids!  Keep in mind that once the pasta is used for a craft, it shouldn't be eaten!
