Hubby and I decided this year we were not going trick or treating. We wanted to start a new tradition. We only had half of the kids this Halloween so it made for a good test run (although my girls wanted me to call their dad and invite him over so they could be here too).
I searched the internet to find ideas and anything I could because I wanted this to be special, I wanted it to be fun and I wanted this to go beyond the typical trick or treating kids do. Who needs that bag of candy anyhow? Who needs to rot their teeth out? What parent wants to pay that dental bill? NOT US!
I had dinner ready when they got home from school....
We played Halloween BINGO, Avery won 4 times in a row on different cards!
Then Gavin won
Then Tyler won
Daddy finally won
Savannah finally won
We played pin the nose on the skeleton......Gavin won
We played guess the number of candy corn......Gavin won again, The guesses were:
There was a total of 150 candy corn in the cup
We decorated haunted houses
We finally went on a haunted hay ride
We put up glowing eyes with toilet paper rolls and glow sticks and nailed them to trees and we blew up LED balloon ghosts which looked super cool without the camera flash!
When we returned the roaches were trying to escape the punch!
