The BIG Halloween Party.....
One of my personal favorites. I love to see all the kiddos dressed up and running around. Little imaginations working over time.
This years menu was:
Ghost on a Stick
Pumpkin Roll-Up's- for the parents
We played games like Slimy Eye Ball Hunt, Wrap the Mummy Relay, Pumpkin Candy Toss, Pin the Nose on the Witch and a few others
I think that the party was a success. I know my kids had a good time. Sharkbait would not dress up as Yoda (the costume I bought) but oh well maybe another year (all my kids had a hard time dressing up at such a young age). My friend came over early to help set up and even dressed up last minute as Princess Leia and ran some of the games.
This year I split up the 17 kids into three groups to play all the games. I think it worked much better. Each group was small and every kid did not have to wait long to have a turn.
The food was not much of a hit. Ghost Mellows were pure sugar tasting. The only person who liked them was my dear friend B. Ghost poop was alright- fudge; who does not like fudge. The drinks had eyeballs (frozen cherries) in them and most of the kids I found out HATE ginger ale. I should of just served bag candy and all the kids- except one would of loved it. But I am sure the parents would have not been happy with me.
Next year- I might try some science experiments and use dry ice. I really enjoy having this party, can you tell. Commander did a good job at taking the group picture and all the action shots of the kids.
