If Halloween is the happiest time of year for folks in the Atlanta Underground Club Scene, Halfway to Halloween has to be a close second. It’s six months away from the big day, which makes it a great time to reuse last year’s costume or perhaps test out a new one for this year. This Friday, April 27 is the 3rd Annual Helter Shelter Halfway to Halloween party at The Shelter.
First, pick a date for the event. A school night isn’t the best choice so pick a Friday or Saturday as close to Halloween as possible. Decide just how long the party is going to last. Three hours is a good length of time: enough time to eat and have some crazy games but not so long that kids will get restless and start making up their own entertainment!
A class party for Halloween can include costumes, treats, music, stories, and of course party games. For this particular party, you will want to plan and play party games that are Halloween themed. This will keep the theme of the Halloween party and still allow children to play games. Here are some ideas for a few class party Halloween games.
Another good song is titled, “The Mobster.” Most have never heard of it. If you are into piano or organ music, get the sheet music for this song. I bought the digital sheet music online. It had a groovy style to it when I listened to it played on the web site that I purchased it from. I chose a soul piano rhythm at a tempo of 116 and let my fingers do the rest. It is so much fun to play. I was going to leave this song out of the list but could not resist. I have never heard the song played on the radio and searched the internet for it. The only version I know is my own. It would be interesting to hear the original version.
Another popular choice is systems that allow you to add music to the system. This makes it easy to allow your doorbell to play your favorite song, Christmas carols, halloween background music free or other music. It also can allow people to be able to play their college fight song or even give messages that they record or have recorded. This is probably giving you some ideas on what you or someone else could choose for their doorbell.
Hand out Party Favors: Don’t let the kids leave empty handed. Hand out gifts to game contest winners and make up some party favor bags with Halloween candy.
If you’re looking for some fun and games outdoors around the St. Louis area then bring the kids out to the Great Godfrey Maze but don’t forget the flashlight. You’re going to need it for all of the twists and turns if you’re going there at night. The kids will have fun shooting ears of corn out of a cannon. They have hay rides and tea cups and a corn crib. There’s plenty of fun for all.
