Getting the kids involved in the decorations is a lovely touch. Let them loose on any signs or banners and challenge them to draw the scariest monsters they can. You could also ask all of the guests to bring their best monster drawings to the party and create a 'Monster Gallery'. Hand out prizes for categories such as "funniest monster", "most creative monster" and "scariest monster".

Monster party snacks can be healthy too! We love this fun way to serve fruit from the Cupcakes and Cutlery site. Simply carve a mouth into a melon and then use cocktail sticks to add facial features (just make sure none of the kids get their hands on them!). The more fruit with different colours and textures you use, the better.

A monster party theme is guaranteed to be popular with the kids - plus, you can create really effective food and décor, without having to spend lots of time or money!

Make sure the kids remember the day with some themed party bags. We stock a wide range of monster themed party bag fillers, including this Monster Sticker Sheet and these Monster-Flexi Straws.
