This children’s themed Halloween “Make Your Own Monster” party is fun a creative and an idea the kids will definitely love!

Are you ready for a fun party idea for Halloween with your children?

My friends, Amy of She Wears Many Hats, Sommer of A Spicy Perspective, and I planned a “Make Your Own Monster” party that is sure to be the highlight of your Halloween season!

We made a fun party theme where children could easily get in on the action of making treats they’d be happy to show off as well as devour.

Our “Make Your Own Monster” party certainly met and exceeded that expectation!

And the party just couldn’t be simpler!

Make a recipe of Rice Krispies treats with the addition of apple pie spice to create a classic Fall favorite treat. Then allow your children to let their creativity shine as they make their monster using their favorite cookie cutter option and decorating with frosting and candies.

For our party monsters we used gingerbread man cookie cutter for the full-size monster, a skull cookie cutter for Frankenstein’s Bride, and then simply cut squares for Frankenstein himself as well as a few of his closest monster-y friends!

We think the “Make Your Own Monster” party will be an instant hit at your house this Halloween!!!

  1. I think my favorite candy is Twix — love those things!! This monster party idea is so cute.

  2. Oh, by the way, not sure if I should leave a separate entry, but I follow you on FB of course 🙂

  3. I absolutely love these – especially the rice krispie frankensteins! I so want to have a Halloween party. Most of my kids’ friends are in our homeschool group & the majority of them don’t celebrate Halloween so it makes it hard – but we are trying to round up a small group!

  4. My favorite candy is…anything sour and gummi.

    Childish, I know.

    But at Halloween, I am all about the candy corn!!

  5. Even though I am 32 years old, I still love to sneak some candy from my childhood!! When that is the case it is Fun Dip all the way!! LOL

  6. My favorite candy is those little colored buttons on paper…OMG I could eat those non stop. I have a stash hidden so the kids can’t have any. MORE FOR ME!

  7. THis is too cute!!I love any kind of holiday candy, and this looks like an awesome way to use some of that Halloween candy!!

  8. My favorite Halloween candy and probably all year round are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. You all did such an amazing job with the decorations, very cute!

  9. my favorite candy is cadbury mini eggs and I’m sad but probably better off that they are only around during easter. The cookies look delicious!

  10. This looks like so much fun! I can’t wait to see what monsters the boys come up with. They made monster cupcakes the other day and had me rolling 🙂

  11. My all time favorite candy is twix! I can eat those all day! Have anyone ever tried rice krispies treats in melted chocolate…YUM!

  12. well what the heck?! I know I saw this fabulous post, and I don’t see a comment….sorry Robyn. These are SOOO cute!! My favorite candy is……..payday! love the salty and sweet!

  13. My absolute favorite Halloween candy has to be Reese’s peanut butter cups – and they are even more enticing since they’re forbidden fruit, as they say, around our house (my son has a peanut allergy)! I’ll have to try to sneak one in before Halloween is over!

  14. My favorite candy is butterfinger! Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. My favorite candy is chocolate, especially a chocolate tiramisu truffle my family in Europe sends me. 🙂 creedamy [at] yahoo [dot] com

  16. I only get ONE favorite? Not possible! 😉
    right now, i am hard-core in love with dark choc kit kats!

  17. I have 4 favorite candies that I switch up depending on my mood. I love KitKats something about the crunchy layers gets me everytime ( I have to eat it a certain way… 1st I nibble off all the edges, then the top layer of chocolate and then eat the waffer. The next candy is the Peanut butter cup I have to eat the edges off then the top and the PB… (I see a pattern here :O) same with Twix and the milky way

  18. oh and I completely forgot about Sour Patch Kids…. I have to seperate them by color and eat them by least favorite to favorite saving the yellow for last
