Halloween Partying–Kiddie Style

A few weeks ago, Trenton and Charlotte saw a commercial for a Curious George Halloween special.  And since we had a party for the spring Curious George special, they thought we should have one for the Halloween one too.

And today was the big day (the movie actually aired yesterday, but I DVR’d it and saved it for this afternoon).  Not that any of the kids really sat and watched the movie for any length of time, but they did have fun.

I scoured my Pinterest boards for snack ideas.

Jack-o-Lantern Veggie Tray (that really just looked more like a smiley face)

But want to know a little secret?  I used leftover red plates and green napkins from Charlotte’s strawberry birthday party.  No, I didn’t forget to buy Halloween paper goods – I just didn’t want more leftover stuff to add to our pile!  Especially since we move in 8 months.

The kids also did a little Halloween craft to take home.

Seriously, are they not the cutest (and best dressed) little ghosts?  Charlotte has named hers and even wanted to sleep with it!

Now that the party is over, the kids are counting down to the big night ‘o trick-or-treating.  And this mommy is glad that her doctor appointment is before candy eating begins!

So creative!

We have mandarin oranges at home, so maybe I'll give tay a jack-o-lantern orange dish with dinner tonight.
