alt Super Halloween Party Idea 
alt This is a simple tradition, but my children love it. We do a pumpkin carving night together. I use the Pillsbury biscuits to make donuts. Just pop open the can and fry them in oil. Cover them in sugar, cinnamon, or powdered sugar. When we are done carving we light up the Jack-o-lanterns, turn off the light and take turns telling made up spooky stories. And of course eat the yummy donuts. We even play the music from the Haunted Mansion from Disneyland.  My friend makes treats for FHE before Halloween and has her children put their costumes on to deliver them to friends and ward members and neighbors. This gives them an opportunity to dress up more than once. And the people love to see the cute children in their costumes.  (Idea shared by Annie Skinner / ga10132007)
alt Trick or Treat
alt Trunk or Treat Activity
alt Trick-or-Treat Youth Activity by Cheri Goldscheitter
alt Trunk-or-Treat Idea - (shared by Malinda Karpowitz / ga09172007) We did a trunk or treat the other year and it was great.  They started out by having everyone bring a soup or bread.  It was cold and nice to warm up with.  Everyone ate and got some nutrition in them, then we went outside and did the trunk or treat part.  It was great.  A little of something for everyone.  They also had a photographer there to take a fall picture of the kids in their costumes.  Just a fun thing to do for Halloween.
alt Trunk or Treat Parking - Last night I attended my grandson's ward for their Halloween party. It was great. They did the trunk-or-treating by having everyone back their car into the parking places right up to the sidewalk all around the building. That way the children walked on the sidewalk around the building and did not have to walk in the parking lot to do the trunk-or-treating. That particular building has parking on 3 sides and the front side faces the street.  People who were not participating in the trunk-or-treating parked their cars in the outside parking places.  It worked out great! Two wards combined for the event and they figured there were about 300 people in attendance.  Many people mentioned that they had never thought of parking the cars that way before. Just thought I would pass it along. (Idea by Donna Cuillard)

CREATIVE HALLOWEEN COSTUMES:

alt A couple of years ago, for my costume, I ran to Wal-Mart and bought a golden T-shirt for $4, then wrapped silver duct tape around my belly, chest, and mouth.  When asked, I replied that I was "the sealed portion of the golden plates."  It was a hit. (Idea by Jeff) 
alt Babysitter - Strap a doll to your rear-end and sit on it.
alt Buccaneer - Attach a dollar to each ear (get it? Buck-an-Ear).
alt Ceiling Fan - Write "Go Ceilings!" on the front of your shirt. And don't forget to cheer! 
alt Chick Magnet - Attach Barbie dolls all over yourself. 
alt Deviled Egg - Dress in all white and paint or attach a yellow circle (you can use construction paper or felt) to your stomach.
alt Floor of a movie theater - Dress up in all black and tease your hair. Apply candy wrappers, chewed gum, lots of popcorn. If you can, attach real movie theater cups or popcorn boxes for a realistic touch. (Heather from Virginia)
alt Gold Digger - Put on a gold dress. Sprinkle gold glitter in your lip gloss. Paint your nails gold. Paint a toy shovel gold, and carry it with a bag of gold rocks. (Dawn Lally)
alt Grandma got ran over by a reindeer - Dress up like an old lady, with dress, slippers and a grey wig. Then put hoof prints on your back. 
alt Half Asleep/Half Awake - Cut some pajamas in half, and sew one side to half a pair of pants and half a shirt. On the asleep side, put your hair in curlers, wear no make-up, keep eyes closed and wear a slipper. On the awake side, curl your hair, wear make-up, and wear a shoe. Carry a pillow on your asleep side, and a briefcase on your awake side. (Mak Jan)
alt Jelly Beans - How about a grocery store product like a loaf of bread or peanut butter and jelly or a bag of jelly beans for the bag of jelly beans you only need a large clear garbage bag and a bunch of balloons you put the garbage bag on make holes for your arms and legs and tie the top around your neck with a large colorful ribbon then fill the garbage bag with tons of balloons its inexpensive and really cute. (Credit Unknown)
alt Leaf Blower - Wear a baseball cap with a leaf dangling down in front of your face. When someone asks what you are, blow on the leaf!
alt Like everyone else in the country, my husband and I are feeling the crunch from high gas and grocery prices, and we have been worried about what to do for our one-year-old son's Halloween costume. Last week at church, my husband got inspired: a missionary! We have black pants, a white shirt, and a tie, and we're borrowing a suit jacket from a family member. Add to that an actual missionary nametag and a little backpack, and we have spent nothing on our son's costume. (Shared by Amy Mcbramy / ga10202008)
alt My teenage son dressed up as Mr. Smarty Pants last year. You just take a bunch of individually wrapped Smarties and tape them to your pants with clear packing tape. He loved it! Fun and easy! (Shared by Lisa Coombs / ga10202008)
alt Operation Game Man - Wear pale pink or flesh-colored clothing, with a red clown nose and fake wig. Use felt to create game pieces (butterflies in the stomach, broken heart, wrenched ankle, etc.). Attach the pieces to the appropriate location on your body with velcro. Optional: Carry a large pair of tweezers so people can try their luck at removing your parts, and carry a hidden hand buzzer. (Brianne)
alt Paperdoll Costume Idea
alt Partly Cloudy With A Chance of Showers - Wear blue surgical scrubs, glue cotton in a patchy pattern all over the shirt and carry a squirt gun. (Ross Dahl)
alt Q-tip - Puff up your hair and spray or powder it white (or wear a wig). Wrap your body in blue plastic wrap. Put cotton over your shoes. 
alt Snackbar - Attach open bags of snacks to you (chips, pretzels, cheese puffs, nuts, etc.). Your friends will love it! They will be snacking on you all night long. 
alt Tickled Pink - Wear pink clothes and carry a feather. 
alt Web Page - Glue pages from a book onto a black sweatshirt and sweatpants. Add spider webbing to your hair. Voila! Instant internet!

Give each student a cut-out of a pumpkin and have them place their pumpkin on the class graph. Discuss how many students think the pumpkins will float and how many think they won't. Give each group of students a sand pail filled with water and a small pumpkin. Allow them to see if the pumpkin floats. Have them discuss their findings with their group.

alt Ladies' fingers - make meatballs in the shape of fingers and insert an almond into the tip. After cooking and glazing with sweet and sour sauce (preferably something red) they look quite gruesome.
alt Monster Brains in Skulls to die for
alt Mr. Blue's Toilet Bowl Punch - Get some blue Kool-Aid and make it up.  Put Hershey's kisses in an ice cube tray, one for each section. Then add water. Freeze. Add your "poop" ice cubes to blue Kool-Aid, and there you have it, toilet bowl punch.
 alt Mummy Cupcakes (see picture on right) - Just frost the cupcakes with chocolate frosting.  Then you use white frosting and put tic tac's on for eyes. (These were made by my cousin and used as refreshments for a baby shower.... hence the pink bows...) Cute, huh?
alt Nutter Butter Ghosts - You could dip nutter butter cookies into white chocolate and put two small chocolate chips on them for the eyes of the ghost.
alt Pencil Pops
alt Pickled Worms
alt Pumpkin Faces - You'll need English muffins, orange spreadable cheese, and raisins.  Let the children spread the cheese on the English muffin. Let them arrange the raisins to make the eyes, nose and mouth.
alt Pumpkin Pudding Cones - You'll need 1/3 can of pumpkin pie filling with spices, 8 oz. prepared whipped topping, 2 packages of instant vanilla pudding, milk, and ice cream cones.  Let the children help mix the pudding with the milk according to instant pudding directions. Add the pumpkin pie filling and stir well (or use electric mixer). The children then spoon the mixture into ice cream cones. "Frost" the tops with whipped topping. This works well with small paper cups rather than the ice cream cones!
alt Pumpkin Smoothies
alt Pumpkin Snot
alt Rice Krispie Pumpkins - Make rice krispies following the directions on the cereal box but add orange food coloring to the marshmallows. When cool roll into balls and then decorate faces on them. Use shoelace licorice for a mouth, green gumdrop for the stem, M&M's or red hots for the eyes and nose.
