Get the tips for hosting an easy peasy trick-or-treating shindig for your crew. Our Halloween party complete with Berry Bloody Halloween Punch and Spooky Treats, has something for all to enjoy!
If you ask my kids what their favorite holidays are, they’d all three tell you: #1: Christmas, #2: Halloween. If I’m to be honest, I actually prefer the smaller holidays – those with a little less pomp and circumstance…. fewer perfect pins for us all to live up to. The holidays like Thanksgiving – where we all gather together for one special meal – or Labor Day! Hello, burgers by the pool.
I know, I know. I’m the Grinch of Halloween. But before you start calling me names, read on. Because, I’ve figured out how to host a kid-friendly Halloween shindig, with very little effort…. and maybe a few Pinterest-worthy ideas, if I do say so myself.

When I saw these limited edition Canada Dry Mini Monster cans, I knew they would be the centerpiece. Not only are they the perfect stand-alone beverage for us to cart along while trick-or-treating, but I have an awesome Berry Punch Recipe that could easily be adapted for Halloween.
The treats were easy enough too! Great Value sandwich cookies are easily dressed up with white cookie icing and googly eyes to get the mummy treatment.
Little pretzel ghosts were made with white chocolate coated pretzels. I simply used the same white cookie icing as glue to secure the eyes.
And because my kids just adore candy corn, I sprinkled some into Great Value Rocky Road Trail Mix. Voila. Easy-peasy!
The recipe for the Berry Bloody Punch is below, and the frozen ice-cube hands are completely optional, but super fun! Just make sure you give them at least a day to freeze solid. Using powder-free vinyl gloves, fill each hand with water and seal tightly with a twist tie. Freeze until solid throughout, and when ready to use, just peel off the vinyl.
