I am not the craftiest mama on the planet, but I fake it thanks to the Internet. As a room mother, sites like Pinterest, favorite blogs and creative hubs like Celebrate Hershey’s ensure that the class parties I help throw are festive and fab.

Sure, we know Hershey’s for Halloween because the candy maker supplies most of the goodies we give out (full size Hershey bars for trick-or-treaters, holla!). But the special Celebrate Hershey’s website has easy but awesome class party games, simple costume ideas, adorable recipes, coloring pages and printables, stencils for pumpkins and decorations, even full-on themed Halloween party plans from start to finish.

Here are some of the ideas I found on CelebrateHersheys.com that I will be implementing for the kids’ class parties:

Pumpkin Favor Pouches: Easiest goody bags ever.

Ghost Pinata: Wow the class (and other parents!) with this spooky but simple-to-make pinata.

Egg Carton Spiders: Cute craft that won’t be trashed!

Murder Mystery Game: Perfect for older grades that still have class parties, here are provided all the print outs and rules you need for the ultimate solve-your-own murder mystery game!

Halloweeny Recipes: Of course, you can’t have a class party without treats. Here are loads of cute Halloween-themed recipes that will delight kids. There are both baking recipes as well as store-bought-only assembly ideas (in case your school has a store-bought-treat-only policy.)
