With the help of several awesome kids activities and cute threads to boot, we're throwing a DIY Halloween party with crafts and games that will help the kids entertained for hours!
Throw a DIY Craft Halloween Party
First, you must send out these daring tombstone DIY invitations. We used construction paper to make these.

For Halloween, they've whipped up a "Witchcraft Cupcake Kit" that's perfectly festive! All of FoodStirs kits come with easy to follow, step-by-step directions and pictures. (As with all cooking activities, an adult should be present to help with the baking process.)
