Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween
Is there anything cuter than a little coven of witches flitting door-to-door and squealing “trick-or-treat”? Nope! Whether a good witch, bad witch, pink witch, purple witch, spider witch, or sparkly witch–being one for Halloween is just plain fun. And having an entire party of witch-themed fun is the best thing ever. Here, I’m going to show you how to have child-friendly-witch-themed-Halloween-party fun by providing examples of the following:
- party food and drink
- costume ideas
Here’s a clever take on pumpkin carving. Afterall, black cats and witches go hand in hand.
Party Food and Drink
Cheese Witch’s Brooms. Tasty and nutritious–can’t go wrong. Recipe is in both Spanish and English.
Creepy Drinks with free printable labels. There isn’t a drink recipe included at this link, but there’s a great all-purpose recipe at Walk Like You’re a Zombie. Tip: This beverage would also look cool served in smaller mason jars.
These little witch hats are pretty self-explanatory: upside down fudge stripe cookie, Hersey’s kisses, your choice of colored frosting. The frosting helps secure the kiss to the cookie. I recommend letting your little witches help in the preparation of this treat.
For the main course, I suggest Guts and Eyeballs. This, of course, is spaghetti and meatballs. In my post Every Witch Way, I talk about making the meatballs look like eyes.
Halloweentown–Director Duwayne Dunham
The Halloweentown movies have always been my daughter’s favorites, and now her little witches enjoy it them too.
Witch Pitch. This site has several good ideas for games.
Witch’s Hat Ring Toss. There are no directions that I found but with a little creativity and innovation . . .
This is a great little DIY costume and so easy to do. The DIY is found here.
DIY witches brooms made from tulle. Love these! And they compliment the above costume so well!
A witch hat with a headband attachment is pure genius! There is nothing more frustrating for a little witch who’s hat keep falling off while she’s trying to trick-or-treat. You can find the DIY for this here.
Here’s another great costume. Once again, an easy and inexpensive DIY costume.
Here’s some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind while getting your child ready for Halloween:
This is cute and you can match the makeup color to the costume.
A variation of the above one. I love the stars and swirls. BTW, the right cheek has a spider on it.
I know I said I wasn’t doing warty witches this time around but, this is cute. See what’s happening with the eyebrows here? Awesome!
Don’t do this to her eyebrows. Does she look happy? No.
Once again with the eyebrows–no. And I’m not sure what’s up with the black dots . . . witchy measles? Just don’t.
Dude–you’ve got a hat on your forehead . . .
Alright, so there you have it. The do’s, the don’ts, along with some tips and ideas to help you throw an enchantingly fun witch-themed party for your mini-monsters. I hope you were able to find some inspiration.
Until next time . . .
