Middle School Halloween Dance Ideas?

I am in charge of my middle school (6-8 grade) dance and I have a lack of ideas for the decorations, games, and what should be played. Keep in mind this is a Halloween dance.

We have this in our school to have a safe Halloween. Some schools do a trunk Halloween. Parents put candy in their car trunks and kids go from car to car. Make sure you have plenty of great music, too.

This sounds like fun!!

I would keep it all simple and kid appropriate. Kids are not much for a bunch of decorations and gee gaws. They just want to have fun and be with their friends. These are awkward years so if you keep it low key and approachable, the kids will love it!


I would focus mostly on the food (finger foods like chicken fingers and tater tots), veggies and dips, chips, and apples (very fallish!), Also cute cupcakes or Halloween style cookies.

For decorations...maybe some colorful mums in pots that the chaperones can take home after (as a thank you for their help).

For games....if you can get things like corn-hole boards that may work...where you toss a bag filled with dried corn into a target (like skeet ball). This may be a regional thing where I am, so if you don't know what it is, post back and I can find you some examples. Offer prizes for high scores.

The other thing they may like are not games, but a photo booth where they can get silly (get a bunch of fall themed things for them to dress up with and either use the new Polaroid cameras or have someone with a digital camera take and print them on the spot. We were at a party where they rented a real photo booth machine and we got bookmarks with our photos (it was very cool)! The line among the kids was crazy long (these were 13 year olds).


You could also set up little booths with whichever electronic games kids like these days--(you know the consoles on a screen). Have prizes for the highest scores for each round. Maybe some of the parents could bring their home systems and then volunteer to watch the booth and chaperone.

Post back what you decide!! Thanks for asking!

Youtube Halloween music. "Monster Mash" comes to mind, of course.

If there's enough room, maybe you could make a mini-haunted house. I'd go for scares, but no blood or gore, but that's just me.
