We love Halloween! Check out the photos below for some spooktacular food inspiration! Something you can really sink your teeth into!

Thanks to Abbi, from Salisbury in the UK who sent in these great Halloween party food ideas. Let’s take a look at them…

What did you do?

Perfect for a small Halloween party at home with your children. All the food can be purchased from your local supermarket, and it isn’t too expensive. The children love to help too. Look at the photos for easy to follow inspiration

I loved seeing the excitment on children’s faces as they saw the food on there plates.

Do you have any other projects planned?

Tell the Housebound With Kids community a bit about yourself…

Hi, I’m Abbi. I Live in the UK, and with over eleven years experience as a nanny, I’m hugely passionate about creating and crafting memorable, magical, and creative parties for children.

It all started when I was a nanny for a loving family in London at the beginning of my journey. Each month we would create a themed party for the children in their home – from Easter, to Christmas and Birthdays – we literally couldn’t wait for the next party!

I loved researching, brainstorming ideas, and then bringing the parties to life through creating all of the elements by hand for the children to enjoy. Whenever there was a party, everyone couldn’t wait to see what the theme might be.

Do you have any tips for other parents?

Let the children have fun, don’t worry if they make a messy. The more mess the more fun.

What are your family’s favourite board game(s)/card game(s)?


What toys would you recommend to other parents?

Leapfrog toys and Orchard Games, I find they are great for all children under 5.

Has this website and community helped you?

I love the website, I think its a great idea and parents/carers can get ideas to use at home with their children.
