We had the best Halloween party ever over the weekend. My friends said it was like a Pinterest Halloween party. That made me smile. I like Pinterest, but I’m not an addict 🙂 We had a lot of fun……But without further ado, I want to show you the piece de resistance;
The kids were soaked! But they just kept egging each other on! It was phenomenal! The kids were so competitive, but in a positive way, they decided they wanted to be timed, and kept shaving seconds off as the apples disappeared. All fear was gone. 3 seconds was the best time in the end. I had always figured bobbing for apples was something they did on TV. Who knew you needed to bring a change of clothes to a Halloween party? Luckily everyone was about Isaiah’s size. This was definitely the highlight of the party, and what everyone talked about later. But wait! There’s more:
Our craft was these little spiders. Thanks to a post by Boy Mama Teacher Mama
4 cups of Quaker Oats Oatmeal Squares, 4 cups mini pretzel twists, 1 bag of Angies Carmel Corn (6oz of Carmel Corn, I choose Angies because I don’t want the corn syrup), 1 bag of chocolate goldfish, 1 bag of Brachs Autumn Mix.
Not the healthiest snack, but not the unhealthiest.
All in all it was an awesome party. Being a homeschooling family in a community with almost no other homeschoolers, our parties mostly include family and good friends with children. It’s a beautiful feeling of community and the coming together of kids at all different stages in their lives and education. Everyone had a great time, we even had a “Dance”. Isaiah’s idea, we had to all get up and dance to thriller. It was a truly funky time!
