Tip of the Week

Consider the different ages of the kids invited. If there is a scary display you'd like to put up, don't put it in the main party area. Instead, put it in an isolated room where the bigger kids can go to enjoy it and the littler kids can be protectedPlan more games than you think you need. Also, have some easier back-up games on hand such as bobbing for applesOffer some food besides candy for the children. Otherwise, the simultaneous sugar high of a roomful of children may become overwhelming!Don't go overboard with decorations.
