So your teen has informed you that they don’t want to go trick or treating this year; they want to invite all their friends over for a Halloween party. You knew this day would come, but you’re not sure you’re ready for your young teen to throw the kind of crazy party they seem to have in mind. Here’s a compromise we think will work for everyone.
Stay Up Late Watching Horror Movies.
Depending on your teen’s temperament and age, they may prefer a thriller or another movie to the horror genre, but staying up late to watch a film with their pals is always a crowd pleaser with teens. Make sure to offer lots of munchies like chips and even a fruit and veggie platter — they may surprise you. Pop is also definitely a must have. Juice may have just as much sugar as pop, but it’s got more of a brunch vibe than a Halloween party vibe.
Dinner can be a variety of things. Pizza, hot dogs, nachos, and hamburgers are always popular choices and easy to make at home for a large group. But less typical party food like lasagne and scalloped potatoes can also be hugely popular with the teen crowd. A good rule of the thumb is if it’s hot, full of carbs, and smothered in cheese, it’s probably a winner.
Your teen is a little old for pin-the-face-on-the-jack-o-lantern, but that doesn’t mean their Halloween party should have an activity or two. For an exciting Halloween party activity that includes everybody, we recommend an escape room. We offer many exciting, Halloween-esque themes such as escaping from a psychiatric asylum and the subconscious of the human mind. We also offer great team rates and can accommodate large crowds. Plus our facility is close to transit and 100% alcohol free. Your teen and their pals can get here easily on the C-train, and you won’t need to worry about their safety.
A fantastic Halloween party requires some fantastic, spooky activities. At Esxoss Manway, we don’t think there’s a better activity than being locked in a room with only your friends and your wits to help you escape again. Schedule your teen’s locked room adventure today!
