As my son's preschool room mom, I was tasked with setting the menu and decorations plan for their annual Halloween luncheon and craft. So, I definitely took it upon myself to search for and come up with some fun ideas.
Two of my favorites this year were well received and super easy to create.
1st- Mummy juice/milk boxes
This couldn't be any easier (although somewhat time consuming).
-White Duck Tape
-Variety of googley eyes
-Juice and milk boxes
Step 1- Cut 5-6, 5-8 inch strips of white duck tape. Start at any point and begin to wrap around the juice box or milk box. Alternate starting and stopping points, be sure to angle a few pieces and consider cutting one or more of the strips in half length wise to add dimension and interest to your design.
Step 2- Using glue, add your googley eyes. Use your creativity here. Alternate where you place the eyes; horizontal and centered or at an angle.
Step 3- Re-glue the juice/milk box's straw to the side of the carton.
The 2nd project that I tackled this year was to offer healthy lunch options that were not only fun for me to create, but fun for the classroom full of 2 year olds to eat.
-Mini oranges or tangerines
-Chocolate chips (mini and regular)
Peel the oranges or tangerines. Cut your celery into 1-1 1/2 inch pieces. Simply place your celery pieces into the peeled oranges and there you have it- mini pumpkins.
For the bananas, peel them ahead of time and dip them into lemon juice to prevent browning.
Put two mini chocolate chips into the bananas to resemble eyes, pointy side down. And then to finish your plate, place a larger chocolate chip to resemble the ghost's mouth.
These two fun Halloween party ideas showcase that not all party ideas have to be complicated or time-intensive. Within a few minutes, you can create Halloween details that not only your kiddos will enjoy, but you as well.
