Today was batty! But in the best possible way 🙂 Ryker and I had a few friends over to celebrate one of our favorite days.
7 kiddos and 5 little babies was a little crazy but those are the best kind of memories right?
We started off the day with Monster Cookie Decorating!
Ryker was pretty much “let’s get this in my belly as quickly as possible” but it seemed like some of the kiddos really had fun decorating and expressing their creativity 😉
I think the hit of the cookie decorating was definitely the ‘eyeballs’
We then moved on to Spooky art work.
I printed out some free Halloween coloring pages as a backup, but the two main crafts were making monster paper bags and also stamping pumpkins using half an apple! Really fun and really messy but that why we had the throw away table cloths.
PRO TIP: (I love/hate saying that because I am in no ways a pro party planner but I do love throwing parties and have picked up some ideas here and there) When using small spaces, like my house, I try to buy 2 disposable tablecloths. One for all the mess that you can quickly gather up and throw away and a second one to place down for lunch/food. It’s quick and easy to change and keeps messes to a minimal when you have a home full of littles.
For lunch I made these spider sandwiches. I used peanut butter and honey and couldn’t find my circle cookie cutter so I just cut circles myself. Then I grabbed 8 pretzels for the legs! So easy!
I threw out some lady fingers (veggie straws) and some pumpkin rice crackers and of course every toddlers favorite… fruit snacks. My friend brought little cuties and her daughter drew pumpkin faces on them! I just served water and then of course leftover cookies.
It was a fun little last minute party and a scary good time :0
