Method 1 Inviting guests
- Invite boys and girls.
A boy and girl party will make it more fun because there will be more of you.
- If you let some guests sleep over, make sure the opposite sex leaves because it is awkward to have a boy-girl sleepover and parents will throw a fit.
- Send out invitations well ahead of the event.
This gives people time to let you know that they’re coming. Sample invitations are provided at the base of this article.
- If wished, create a Facebook party event to keep guests notified.
Method 2 Preparing the food
- Make food.
Create special Halloween foods like:
- Eyeball olives (or grapes)
- Wing of bat chips
- Hair of werewolf angel hair pasta
- Fingers of man mini-corn dogs
- Potato salad with baby potatoes carved as skulls (paint the eye and nose sockets along with the grin with either Chinese soy or edible coloring – it is a lot of work, but on the bright side, kids eat less than adults).
- Serve good treats.
Some ideas include:
- Pumpkin seeds
- Funky fingers
- Pumpkin pie
- Jack cookies.
Make drinks. For example, have spooky Halloween punch or blood punch.
Method 3 Preparing the house
Put up fake cobwebs all over the place.
- Try to make the main party room steamy.
or some dry ice (ask stores and marts in your area, it’s fairly cheap and easy to find). You might also want to add an eerie glow to the room with candles.
Method 4 Making an entrance
- Get some of your friends, neighbors and family to come over and take part in the fun.
Have them wear creepy costumes and pose as decorations, then ambush the guests with ghastly acting in the walkway to your house, and inside the house.
- Be careful not to scare the children too much; start scaring them on a mild scale and escalate as much as you feel you can get away with before the tears start.
Rope in guests to help. If the early guests are willing to scare people, jump out at them as they arrive.
Method 5 Activities during the party
- Watch some scary movies, or just cool Halloween movies.
Some good movies are:
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (One of the scarier HP’s, but not too much for the younger ones, if any show up)
- The Mummy
- Hocus Pocus.
- Play spooky Halloween games like:
Be creative. Draw your own Halloween spooky pictures or tell spooky stories.
Hang apples from a tree limb, and have an apple biting contest in which people try to bite them off and the winner gets to join the grown ups for the next big scaring ambush. But here’s the twist, friends dressed like classic horror monsters hide in the shadows and jump out to scare them while they are in the middle of biting an apple.
If having a sleepover, tell scary stories. Just like the cheesy movies where you pass around the flashlight and sit in the dark.
Play Wii games like Just Dance 2. This game has Monster Mash.
Add New Question
Where do I put the dry ice? On the floor?
You can put the dry ice on a table or chair. It can also help if it is hidden.
How long does the dry ice last?
Dry ice will last as long as you keep it in a cool dark place.
What are the best sites are for finding food or decoration ideas?
Pinterest for sure. If you don’t want to make an account, look up food and lifestyle blogs.
Where can I throw a Halloween party?
Look for a community center or small business that hosts parties. If that does not work, your house will do just fine.
What if people don’t show up?
Just concentrate on having fun with the people that do show up.
How many people should I have over for my party?
It depends on how big the party area is going to be. If you’re having it at a house, you probably don’t want more than about a dozen guests. If you’re having it outdoors or in a bigger venue, you could probably invite 20 or so.
What are some other games we can play?
You could play bobbing for skeletons (carve apples in the shape of a skeleton head), Mafia, and Wink Murderer (If they can’t wink, just have the person stick out their tongue).
Can I have a sleepover for both boys and girls if they sleep in different rooms?
Yes. As long as they sleep in different rooms, there should be no problems, but make sure it’s okay with your parent(s)/guardian before you start inviting people.
I’m thirteen, nearly fourteen, what would be a good amount of guests for my party?
A good amount would probably be 8-10 guests, but you could probably add a few more if your friends are very well-behaved.
I’m 15 years old but I want to throw a normal birthday party. What are the best games, music, etc. to employ?
What should I do if scare them too much and everyone leaves the party?

- If someone really doesn’t want to do something, don’t force them to do it.
- Have a prank for the guests it will be so funny!
- Do not embarrass your kids!
- Play some music in the house that can be spooky or not.
- Don’t let one kid ruin the party, if the child is trying to ruin the fun, find out why and if possible help solve the issue.
- Avoid being boring, you have to be funny in front of the kids.
- Experiment with dry ice and fog, fake gravestones and horror themed games with prizes or little trophies for the winners. If you’re going to give out prizes, however, make sure you have a few consolation prizes at hand.
- Make sure no one gets bored.
- Don’t worry if things don’t go exactly as planned. Sometimes kids like to just hang out and talk.
- You can also do guess what it is so fill a bowl with candy and put paper on bowl with a little hole and have kids stick their hands inside and guess. If the get it right they get 10 candies if they lose 3 candies.
- Give out party bags at the end. Only if you want to, you don’t have to.
- You should do the game Hot Potato but do Hot Pumpkin.
- If it isn’t obvious to you, try to use disposable cups and plates, and have trashcans handy to lessen the pickup.
- Buy a Halloween themed Piñata from your local variety shop. This is good for younger guests that may not as much fun playing other games than the older guests.
- Make sure no kid is left out.
- Go trick or treating around the neighbourhood and try to go to the best decorated houses(they usually have the best sweets).
- Do not try to scare a younger guest too much as they may feel upset. This may result in the child crying for their parents, refusing to join in your Party Games and overall just ruining your awesome Halloween Party!
- Don’t let kids get too close to fire if you light candles for an eerie glow.
- Try not to get the dry-ice on the floor!
- If doing a walk through the woods, watch out for poison ivy, snakes (wear boots if this is the case), briars, and spiderwebs.

How to Lose Belly Fat Fast for Kids
Belly fat in kids is just as serious of a health concern as it is for adults. According to research presented in a 2014 issue of the journal Pediatrics, from the years 2011 to 2012, almost 33 percent of children ages 6 to 18 years qualified as abdominally obese, according to their waist-to-height ratio. In adults, belly fat can sometimes be blamed on aging and changing hormones, but this isn’t what’s happening in kids. To lose belly fat, children need dietary revisions, commitment to healthy exercise and improved lifestyle habits.
The number one step in helping kids lose belly fat, though, is having them quit their soda habit. A 2013 review published in Hippokratia confirmed that among children ages 7 to 15, sugar-sweetened beverages correlate with obesity. This confirmed previous research published in a 2007 American Journal of Public Health showing that soda and other sugary beverages correlate with increased body weight and risk of medical problems. Children who drank soft drinks also were less likely to get adequate calcium and nutrients from milk. Switching to water, sparkling water, plain iced tea or even milk helps kids reduce calorie intake immediately and lose belly fat fast. Read more…

10 Secrets on How to lose belly fat for Teenagers in 1 Week
Stress induces the hormone cortisol which causes us to gain belly fat. So if you eat healthy, and exercise but can’t seem to eliminate belly fat?
This is a huge reason that prevents teens from getting the results they desire.
You must set a schedule to sleep and stick to it, the same way you set an alarm to wake up.
If you are on a sleeping schedule, that is wonderful! Do not allow it to get ruined by over-sleeping on the weekends.
Surprisingly when it comes to losing belly fat, over-sleeping is almost just as bad as not getting enough sleep. Avoid this as much as possible.
If you can, stick to water and healthy all natural tea. Need flavor? Try infusing your water with fruits etc.
If you must have a fruity juice, you can always juice some fruits and make a delicious, healthy drink.
Fidget and Move around – When you get home from school you usually lay in bed, nap, or sit (yes I am psychic lol). You want to avoid doing this as much as possible. You sit all day long in class, so when you get home, this is your opportunity to move around like crazy. Clean up the house, organize your room, play with your cat or dog, chase your younger siblings. Whatever it takes to get you up and moving and keep you up and moving is what you want to do.
Unhealthy food – Let’s be real, you are a teen! Your life pretty much revolves around unhealthy food. Whenever your friends want to go out, it is usually to a restaurant and not “le healthy food” restaurant either. Your after school hangout spot is usually a fast food spot. The cafeteria in your school serves unhealthy, healthy food. So, you are going to eat unhealthy! The key is moderation. Plan out a day to have a cheat meal. I will repeat, pick one day out of the week to have 1 meal or snack that is unhealthy. The best time to do this would be the daytime or early afternoon. Please avoid having your cheat meal or snack late at night. You can still be a teen and have fun but the key to having your cake and eating it too is moderation. 10 Secrets on How to lose belly fat for Teenagers in 1 Week

Best Ways For Kids To Lose Weight
The number one rule you should consider when you want to lose weight is “YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.” It is very simple to see that if you eat a lot of fatty foods with sugar and grease, you are in danger of gaining weight and getting acne. Eating healthy might not taste as good, it might be more expensive, and it might be less convenient… but I guarantee you that it will bring you happiness and a great body to boot.
A sneaky way to lose weight is to avoid your parents’ car. By refusing to get rides to school, you will have to find another way to commute and obviously walking, running, skateboarding or biking to school will totally keep you in good shape.
The biggest problem most people have is that they don’t lose weight for the first week and then they give up. However, they might not even know that as they are working hard and exercising, they are burning fat and gaining muscle which usually can actually cause you to gain weight at first, and then as you keep burning fat after all your muscles have been developed, you lose weight later.

Try to download the press every day or every week increasing the number of approaches. We should not forget about the lower abs, which can be strengthened by lifting the feet from the supine position, and about the side.
Slimming belly – a problem faced by almost all women. Even the regular bench press does not always help to remove the subcutaneous fat from the abdomen, bulging muscles hide behind the not aesthetic the layer of fat. But this problem is not insoluble. There are a number of exercises, regular performance of which in conjunction with ancillary procedures will help to get rid of the fat layer on the belly.
These are the exercises of aerobics. To begin the lesson, you should be warming up for 20-30 minutes. The choice of style of aerobics should be done on the basis of the shape type. So, having a figure of “Apple” with a full stomach and lean limbs, it is better to use exercises from step aerobics and belly dance.

How to remove belly fat teenager
In today’s job market, it can be hard for a teenager to find a job.
I remember looking for jobs when I was 15 – they were hard to come by! Don’t let the idea of not having a car keep you from finding work.
If you’re willing to work, you can find something that’s worth your time.
I wish I had this list of jobs for 15-year-olds when I was a teenager!
Unfortunately, I can’t turn back time, but you can take advantage of your spare time with these teen job ideas.
Editor’s Note: Hey, if you’re not 15, I wonder if you tried any of these jobs when you were a teen. Leave a comment!
1Make Money with Swagbucks
Basically this is a free site that offers you a bunch of ways to earn cash, gift cards, or other rewards.
You can earn by answering polls, taking surveys, doing simple tasks (like giving feedback about a website), trading in old video games or books, and even playing games on their site.
I have tried it out and have received multiple payments from them, so I can attest that it is legit.
While you won’t get rich doing this, to me it seems like a great way for internet-loving teens to make some money. Find out more in our Swagbucks review or get started here.
2Start a Tutoring Business
Tutoring services are in demand by parents of students who do not understand some of the essential school classes. The rates for tutoring may be difficult to calculate at first, but if you are successful and the child shows a significant improvement, then you may be able to negotiate a higher rate.
Start at $10 per hour and work your way up from there.
Teenagers who have good typing skills can offer their services to business owners who do not type well or would rather have someone else type for them.
Try charging per word!
4Start a Babysitting Co-op
Babysitting service may seem like a hit-or-miss low-paying job, but there are ways to create a unique service for people and drive business to the point where the next logical step can take place: networking.
By pooling with a few close friends, you can offer more availability options. One way to increase the amount you can charge is by taking a CPR course and obtaining babysitting certification through the Red Cross.
Another way teenagers may supplement the hourly rate of babysitting is to offer cleaning services. By adding housecleaning to the repertoire of services that a babysitting pool offers, teenagers can easily earn extra money by cleaning houses on a regular basis.
They can also offer occasional specialty cleaning projects such as garages and basements. When performing a specialized cleaning project, the homeowner may wish to get rid of some unwanted items that are still functional and/or have value.
6Become a Craigslist Scavenger
Scavenging includes any legal method to obtain items that people no longer want and only care to have removed. People set things at the curb the night before garbage collection, post advertisements on bulletin boards at grocery stores, laundromats, and more.
The teenager may have to clean the item up or even make minor repairs before selling it, whether at their own rummage sale, Craigslist, or at a local auction.
7Become an eBay Expert
If you are good at selling items, especially on eBay, you can offer services to other people to sell their items for them. This is generally a commission-based job with rates between 30 and 50 percent of the net profit on the item. You can also use your eBay skills to sell those items that you find for free.
8Get Outside and Ask for Work!
Many homeowners are willing to pay teenagers to mow their lawn and perform other yard work. This is a very easy way for a 15-year-old to find a job, especially during summer vacation.
9Become a Gopher
If you don’t mind running errands for others and have the ability to get around town on public transit or a bike, you might consider an errand running service (what I like to call ‘gopher’ jobs – go for this and go for that).
This would include services such as grocery shopping, mailing letters and buying postal supplies at the post office and other errands. These types of jobs typically pay a lower rate of whatever the individual offers and what you will accept. However, simple errands often lead to more jobs and almost always additional referrals.
10Work at a Restaurant
Many local restaurants hire 15-year-olds to bus tables and perform kitchen tasks, such as salad preparation or washing dishes. State labor laws may restrict certain tasks that an individual under the age of 18 can do; for example, operating machinery.
11Turn Crafts into Cash
If you’re a crafty teenager, you might consider making crafts and selling them on sites like eBay or Etsy. Afghans, quilts, clothing, fishing lures, shelves, Christmas ornaments – you name it! If you can make it, you can probably sell it on Etsy.
People who have a working relationship with a teenager may employ them for odd jobs like housesitting or petsitting while they are on vacation. This usually involves bringing in the mail, feeding fish and other unattended pets, etc.
Sometimes people utilize a house-sitter to actually stay inside the residence for a specified event, such as a funeral for a close relative. Try making these connections through your church or school.
13Work at School Carnivals or Events
You might be able to find work at your own school if they’re hosting an event. Check with the school office to see if they’re hiring students to work at the school carnivals or events. At my high school, students could work track and cross country events to make a few extra dollars.
14Hand Out Flyers for Businesses
Local businesses sometimes offer money to anyone who is willing to hand out flyers while canvassing large areas where people congregate. If it is lawful and permissible in your area, you may find work that involves leaving flyers underneath the windshield wiper of a parked car.
15Work at Summer Camps
Organizations that offer summer camp programs for elementary children usually hire teenagers as assistants in gaming activities and crafts. The students who have a CPR certification may have an upper hand in landing a job.
