With only a few weeks left until October 31st, our kids are starting to get excited about Halloween! Besides the fun of trick or treating, it's also a time when the kids can let their imaginations run free, and let their uniqueness shine through the costumes and characters they choose.



Why not make the most of this anticipation by planning a special kind of Halloween party where your daughter and her friends can get caught up with their favourite monsters! Monster High has your party entertainment covered with the recent launch of Monster High's first ever musical, Boo York, Boo York!

In the 12th special in the Monster High series, the ghouls head to the fight lights, big city in their first ever musical. All of your favourite ghouls are there, taking in the sights from Times Scare to the Monster of Liberty! They'll also be attending a ball to celebrate the rare Crystal Comet, which has rumoured magical powers! The whole city is buzzing with comet fever and it's sure to be stellar!

Here are some great tips to help kick off your Monster High screening party and make this Halloween the best-ever!

Dress the Part.
The best way to get excited about a party theme is to look the part! Monster High is now offering a wide range of costumes from Spectra Vondergeist to Frankie Stein, you can bring all your favourite characters to life with your friends!



Know all the words.
While the best part of a screening party is seeing the movie for the first time with all of your best friends, you can also get excited in advance and learn the lyrics to the songs. After all, isn't belting out your favourite tunes badly with your besties all part of the fun? Prepare in advance and watch the Boo York, Boo York lyric videos here!



Decorate.
Help bring the theme to life even more by transforming your livingroom into Monster High or Boo York! From creating your own Monsters of Liberty out of paper, to hanging cobwebs and oher spooky decorations, you can recreate the Monster High world right at home.



Concessions.
Create your own Creepateria with delicious Monster High themed snacks (like the cupcakes we made or maybe some graveyard taco dip and dragons punch? You'll think you're in the real Mnster High world!

  4. My Halloween party too is to have a variety of foods, junk and healthier fare to balance it out. Not everyone has a sweet tooth, and lessening the chances of sour bellies is always a bonus (Sabrina Tong)

  5. Tailor the scary level to the youngest kids at the party to prevent traumatizing anyone, and have a good mix of healthy and not-so-healthy treats on hand.

    Hunger. A real and necessary byproduct of dieting to lose weight. At last, the secret is out. Research has finally agreed with hundreds of fitness experts and body builders. Diets high in protein help keep a dieter from feeling as hungry as dieters on a low protein diet. It is not really a break through, but weight watchers all over the world are beginning to learn about the benefits of increasing the amount of protein in their diet.

  20. We go out out for our Halloween parties, we have invites printed & we decorate teh living room, dining room, kitchen, front porch, bathroom & front yard. Every where guests will be. We adapt menus to make them a bit creepy like adding a tiny bit of black gel food colouring to sauce to use on chicken wings & ribs & adding a bit of green to blue cheese dressing for veggies to be dipped in. simple but fun.

  51. My best party tip is to have a make your own mini pizza station. The kids can put together what they like and it is also easier to deal with likes, dislikes and food sensitivities. Another tip is to talk to your child ahead and explain how they should circulate around the party and not just stay with a best friend. They need to make sure none of the guests feel left out due to shyness or other reasons.

  52. In my house nothing beats making a gross out haunted house or haunted trail. My daughter uses gummy worms, jello, marbles and all sorts of things that you have to feel while blindfolded and guess what they are. You can make a game out of it with a prize too for the person who has the most correct guesses.
