Our Brownie Troop had a little Fall Party allowing the girls a chance to wear their costumes, make Carmel apples, and play a few games. After ten years of planning classroom parties, I have a plethora of ideas stored in my head and knew that Monster Mash Musical Chairs is always a winner. For Miss A's 2nd grade classroom party, we had a bowl of "brains and mush" for the kids to feel their way through. Give some kids a bowl of spaghetti, plastic spiders, gooey grapes, and a few other surprises and they will have a blast. Seeing some of the kids faces as they dug into the bowl with their eyes tightly closed was so worth the mess.
Mr C's got some more use out of his Smurf Costume (guess the work was all worth it) for his schools' Halloween Dance. In fact, three of his friends joined him in a Smurf community of sorts. Trying to be the hip mother, I made Witch's Fingers Cookies for the party. They were both yummy and disgusting.
