Our "Spooky" Halloween Party

Many of you know my little girl loves to have a party...and a holiday like Halloween is the perfect reason to celebrate!  I enjoy Halloween too...the cutesy, fun, giggly spooky kind of Halloween (not the creepy, gross zombie type of Halloween!).  So, in the spirit of fun Halloween-y-ness, here are our "spooky" Halloween Party pictures!

First off, the Witch's Brew!  To say the kids loved this would be a serious understatement.  They could have played in it for hours!  

Next, a little craft!  I used Halloween-shaped Scratchy Art that I ordered when I put together the Halloween Kits for Whole Child Creative Curriculum.  

And what's a Halloween Party without a piñata?  Okay, so maybe there are many Halloween Parties for kids without a piñata, but our party certainly had one!  If you're interested in how to make a piñata, I put up detailed instructions here

"Whack!  I got it!"

"Oh no...a leg fell off!"

"Don't worry...I'll put it back on!  See?  All better!"

Finally, we came back to eat our Witch's Brew with some Lemon Swirl Cupcakes.  Mmmmm.  The kids all wanted more sugar, but since it was lunch time I made them wait a few minutes for spaghetti.  It's amazing how fast an hour can go by when you're having a Halloween Party!!!

I still need to post about carving a pumpkin, trick-or-treating, and costumes...hopefully we finish Halloween up in one week!

We do piñatas ALL the time..but never for Halloween..You've got me thinking now! Looks like you had a blast!

How fun. What a great idea.

That looks like they had so much fun!! We went a Halloween kid's party this past weekend, and they had a pinata, too (pumpkin one). Any excuse will do for a pinata!

Vivian, That's awesome! I don't think you can have too many piñatas!

Thanks, Sarah!

Seriously, Tiffany! Any excuse!!

Skye, I'm not sure if I liked the witch's brew or the piñata better...both were so fun!

Thanks, Crystal! We sure thought it was! ;)

I LOVE that pinata (sorry, I don't know how to get the tilde over the "n" on the computer)!

What a fun party!!! You went all out!

Jansen Family November 7, 2011 at 3:03 PM  

Thanks, Nicki! The only way I've got the tilde was to copy and paste it from somewhere else!

Esther, We all had a blast!

Delicious Halloween foods! During Halloween, our family often prepares pizza for the kids. I carve and transform tomatoes into mini Jack-O Lantern toppings so kids will eat the vegetables. =]
