Halloween is getting nearer & here are some great ideas. Ok… so decorating is pretty standard. Cob webs everywhere … Spiders hanging from the ceiling …. Candles or Black lights…. eerie music.
So how do you make YOUR party stand out from the rest???? HHHmmmmm…..
For kids… there are plenty of “goolish games”…. now I hate bobbing for apples & getting my costume wet & makeup runs down my face. Grabbing the apple on a string? No, I can’t afford a dental visit when it wacks out a tooth!
Gross things in a box….. my kids always liked this one. Cut a hole to fit a small hand in several smaller boxes.
In each box, you put in something “gross”. an “eyeball” (peeled grapes) … “worms” (cooked spaghetti) …
“snot” (mix corn starch with a little water to the right consistancy) … “barf”… “melted icecream with nuts”
Don’t allow squeezing…. but you can have them either guess what it is… or just tell a creepy story as they put their hand in each box.
For younger kids….. “pumpkin toss” . Use personalized halloween hershey miniatures or personalized Hershey Kisses from www.candybarwrap.com buy a plastic pumpkin & have them toss them in. They get to keep all the ones that go in.
Halloween Bone hunt …. either cut out paper or plastic bones from the party store. Like an “easter egg hunt” around the house or outside if nice enough.

Spicy Roasted Pumpkin seeds:
Scrape out seeds from pumpkin, clean & wash. Dry with paper towel. Lightly oil or spray with butter Pam. Sprinkle with taco seasoning or chili powder. If you want it extra spicy… a little Cayenne can be added.
You can do the same with mixed nuts as well.
