Halloween Party

Party

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:
Ghoul's Punch
Ghost Poop
Mummy Toe's
Pumpkin Berries
Pumpkin Berries
Ghost on a Stick
Ghost Mellows

Pumpkin Roll-Up's- for the parents
Pumpkin Roll
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
Party B

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.

Thats looks like a great time and those roll ups are making me drool. Everyone had such great costumes. I bet the kids would love the experiments next year.

What great pictures. I thought I was doing good with Halloween with serving mummy dogs before trick or treating. You really go all out! How fun!

That looks like so much fun! Bless you for having the tenacity to host a party like that, which I'm sure the kids thoroughly enjoyed. I don't thing I have it in me. ;)

What fun what fun! I love your pictures. I can't believe the food wasn't a hit it sure looks good. :)

Years ago in another state and another time I used dry ice in a Halloween punch and it worked super well. Also ice frozen in rubber gloves and then stuck in the punch to keep it cold works well too. ;)
