What are the best halloween party themes for kids?

Even though Halloween is still a couple months away, stores like Target and Costco are already carrying costumes, Halloween décor and of course the giant bags of candy. 

If you have elementary school age kids, you know that Halloween is not just a one-day affair.

Before October 31, there are classroom Halloween parties, sports team celebrations, trick or treating at the in-laws, annual Halloween events at a theme park, pumpkin patch, and the list can go on and on.

Most of the time these events involve candy because after all, it is Halloween. So inevitably, there will be lots of candy!

For parents with kids that are prone to allergies and nuts, Halloween can also be a scary time because you don’t know what the treats might contain. 

Instead of having all these candies and sweet temptations around the house, why not try out some non-candy treats that can be given out during Halloween!

Here’s a quick list of some of the best Halloween party themes for kids!
