Thanks to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Jazwares, we were sent press materials, a goody pack with activities, and a Hotel Transylvania 3 Blu-ray™/ DVD. This package inspired activities for a Halloween Party for Kids, and opinions expressed are that of my own.
Are you planning an upcoming Halloween Party for Kids?
If so, I have activities inspired by Hotel TRANSYLVANIA 3 that are easy to setup and fun for the entire family!
#1. Watch Hotel Transylvania 3 for a Halloween Party Movie Night!
Keeping the crowd entertained at a Halloween Party for Kids is a must, and a great way to accomplish this is with a family friendly movie. We got an opportunity to watch Hotel Transylvania 3 Blu-ray and the kids really had a great time viewing the film and checking out the bonus features.
This animated feature has loads of hilarious moments, great music, dancing, as well as shares positive messages like; not judging someone by their appearances, the importance of family, and why parents sometimes need a break to take care of themselves.
#2. Goody Bag Items:
Looking for Goody Bag Inspiration for your next Halloween party? My kids also got a kick out of opening the Jazwares Monster Mayhem Surprise Pack Toys.
…and isn’t that Wayne the Wolf plush adorable!
#3. Spooky Halloween Recipe:
I made the kiddos a Spooky Halloween Popcorn Mix and if you like want to recreate it, all you need is:
2 Bags of large Microwave Popcorn
1 Cup of Candy Corn
1 Cup of lightly Salted Roasted Peanuts
Popcorn Mix Directions:
First prepare the microwave popcorn and allow this to cool. Tip: Remove any unpopped kernels.
Next add in the Candy Corn and Peanuts and lightly mix this together.
To finish, place the candy eyeballs on top and serve immediately.

This is also one of Blu-Ray Bonus Features tutorials on Hotel TRANSYLVANIA 3 .
All you need make Mummy Lanterns is a clear plastic container, pack of white streamers, tape, glue stick, google eyes, electronic tea light and safety scissors.
