Our toddler Halloween party was a success. The kids ran around and played, there were screaming, laughter, and a lot of running.
However, the party turned out to be completely different from what I posted before. I had too much to do and a very short time so I compromised and did something simpler but with same amount of fun.
Here is the simpler version:
Instead of make it yourself pizza they had Mac and cheese with hotdogs.
Instead of foam door hangers, they decorated lunch bags with Halloween theme foam stickers to make their own goody bag.
They made pumpkin faces out of paper plat (colored in orange) and cuts of black paper in the shape of eyes and mouths. They had so much fun working with glue and get to create all different kinds of faces and they got to take the crafts home.
I didn’t manage to hide creepy things for them to find mostly because it was day light and very difficult to make it dark in the house. They managed to have some creepy fun in the dark themselves. They had some flash light adventure on their own, they had spider rings on the carpet and under the bed and where looking at them with flash light in different angles.
The popping the balloon game was intact and it was a hit. It was so fun watching them sitting on the balloons and try to pop them without their nails or teeth.
The kids were very excited about the decorations. The above picture is of our living room where most of the plays and running around happened. We had the entrance, stair case and the living room all covered with spider web and lots of different size of spiders. I also painted some pumpkins and squash and placed around the house for decoration.
I will do this again next year, it was so much fun for me watching him with his buddies playing and trying to scare each other.
