About the Author

Linda Sadler has always enjoyed throwing Halloween parties and sharing her ideas with other people. As the mother of two boys, ages 12 and 15, she has over 10 years of experience planning school parties. She has also thrown Halloween parties at her home for over 15 years. The idea to write this book came from her constant struggles to find new decoration, craft, game and treat ideas for her parties. Her goal is to make planning a Halloween party easy, so she has written this book with easy to follow step-by-step instruction. Anyone, even those who are not crafty or creative, can follow the directions and make fun decorations, treats and party favors.

I just purchased this book and am looking forward to using the ideas for my upcoming Halloween party. I am impressed with the variety of ideas...most can easily be done by my children and I look forward to 'creating' the fun treats. The directions are so easy to follow that even a non-crafty person like myself can make the decorations and party favors. The pictures are a great help because I can see what I am making. I look forward to using the ideas in this book for both my children's school party and my own annual Halloween party. Thank you for the great new party ideas! P.S. My children have already made several batches of the SLIME and they play with it like play doe...it is amazing how 2 liquids are mixed together to make a solid. It is a blast to make!

This book offers some great ideas for a Halloween party. Although many of the games are familiar, they are giving a nice ghoulish twist for the holiday. If you're a Halloween fanatic, there won't be anything new or different offered here, but if you're just starting to enjoy the holiday (or got stuck as party mom), this book is a terrific place to start your planning.

This year I purchased a number of books on Halloween in order to get more ideas for my annual Halloween party for children ages 2 to 8. This book is a gem, best of the batch. I was able to use at least 10 ideas from this book, including "Stick the Nose on the Pumpkin", "Bopping for Apples", "Halloween Hunt" "Witches Brew" punch, etc. These ideas are easy to use, and not time consuming, unlike the ones I found in other books... where the prime requirement seems to be having a lot of spare time to carry out their ideas. I will use this book over and over again in years to come!

This book has everything you need to plan a Halloween party. It's more focused for children, but it also had quite a few ideas suitable for adults.I think it's the only book you'll need to plan a fun Halloween party.
This books has great ideas for indoor and outdoor decorations. It also has wonderfully creative recipes. There are plenty of games to keep party guests entertained. From very fun and noisy games to the settling down and quiet games. In addition to the quiet games, there are neat craft projects to do.

I love Halloween and had looked FOREVER to find a book to help with some ideas in the celebration and this book is it! This book gives ideas and step by step how to's in playing games, making recipes and creating props. Straightforward, easy, non-crafty and fun. Age limits are put on the games so you know which ones to use, or not to use. I have bought so many Halloween how to books that just sit on the shelf. This one does not! I have dog eared and paper clipped this one into tatters! This IS the book to buy!

I bought this book last year for help with a child's halloween party. There are plenty of games for all ages and the recipes are easy to prepare. The only disappointment for me with this book is all the photo's and recipes are in black and white which doesn't really give a good idea of what the costumes and receipes will look like. Color photo's would have been so much better, but if your looking for games for all ages this is the book for you.
