Here is a quick and easy game for a Halloween party!
Simply decorate Styrofoam cups to resemble ghosts. Either use stickers like I did or you can draw faces on them with markers.
Stack them up and have kids attempt to knock them over with tennis balls. Make sure to make a rule that the ball has to bounce once before hitting the ghosts. This prevents kids from chucking the balls across the room or too far away from the game.
Since we had lots of littles at our party last year, I set up two stations to prevent any scuffles with taking turns. It was a blast!
Look no further for an easy to make, fun Halloween party food!
Mummy dogs were a hit with all ages. They fall far from the real food philosophy that we try to aim for around here but prove to be a great party food and a favorite among youngsters. And lets be honest, we kind of have to chuck healthy expectations out the window on Halloween night. Just embrace it, people. Your kid is going to be stuffed full of sugar and processed food for a night and I promise they will survive.
To make your mummies, slice the bottom of a hotdog open to create legs. Now carefully cut each side of the hotdog to make arms.
Now slice up crescent rolls into thin strips. Wrap your strips imperfectly around the hotdog.
Turkey Tacos (FF) (Directions: Brown ground turkey and season with our easy homemade taco seasoning mix. Place in your favorite taco shells and top with shredded cheddar cheese, shredded iceberg lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa, sour cream.)
Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches(Directions: Place cooked pork tenderloin slices from Friday’s meal, cheddar cheese, and BBQ sauce on toasted bread or leftover baguette. Broil open-faced for a few minutes until warmed through.)
Leftover celery and carrot sticks, cucumber slices, and red pepper slices with hummus
I’ve learned that if you make food fun, kids are about 7x more likely to eat it. Yes, 7x- not 8x or 6x. 7 times more likely. I have no documented data aside from my own personal recollection so don’t ask for it. Just trust me.
Since your children will likely being eating themselves in a sugar-coma on Halloween, why not provide some healthier options earlier in the evening? Here are two easy ideas that are super easy to whip up: Orange Pumpkins and Ghost Bananas!
