Organising A Halloween Party
There is no other season that SCREAMS party decorations like a Halloween party.
This is the one time of the year that households can go crazy. Plates, cups & napkins in varying levels of scariness.
So no matter what age your kids are you are can accommodate them and their ghoulish fantasies.
It is the decorations that are most important. If you live on a street like I do then the there may be fierce neighbourly competition.
Window clings are great at this time of the year and they are also available for christmas.
They are so simple to use and leave no mess behind. I also love window markers as they just wipe off.
Very, very effective are the dreaded fake spider webs, the more the better, throw a couple of plastic spiders in there for extra creepiness – they can be bought separately.
Make sure the kids put the webs up high enough so you don’t get smothered when you come down the stairs in the morning.
Halloween Must Have Games
Bobbing For Apples
Make sure you have plenty of towels at the ready. Pop a couple of red apples in a large basin of water and watch the kids try to fish them out using only their teeth. Make sure each child gets a turn at.
Halloween Scavenger Hunt
When the kids are out trick-or-treating, run around the house and leave little messages for them find with instructions to go to the next place.
At each message leave a couple of little treats, all the supermarkets take part at Halloween and you can buy lots of nets of mini sweets ideal for this type of game.
Every Halloween my Mum would make toffee apples and they are so simple and easy to make.
2 Cups of Caster Sugar
½ teaspoon of white vinegar
½ Cup of water
Red food colouring
Cover a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Soak the apples in warm water for 2 minutes, this will remove the wax. Remove the stalks & insert lollipop sticks into each apple.
Put the sugar, vinegar & water in a pan and bring to the Boil, then add the food colouring.
Let it simmer for 20 minutes.
Carefully dip each apple into the mixture and then place on the greaseproof paper to cool & harden.
With all that I’ve included above you should be guaranteed a great Halloween party with lots of fun and games and ghoulish treats.
