We let our 12 year old have a Halloween party last year and it actually went well. I wasn’t sure what to expect with a bunch of 12 year old boys, so I bought way too much food. We had so much pizza left it took our family of five a week to eat it all.
Turns out 12 year old boys just want to play football. It was pretty funny to watch them play in their costumes.
You can’t have a party without some great food. I did a lot of snack foods with Halloween flair.
I tried using candy melts for the first time. I’m not sure how I went so long without trying this. I made witches brooms with large pretzels, candy melts, and a Halloween Candy Mold
. My kids were impressed that I made candy. One day they’ll know better! You can see the brooms in the above picture. Here’s a link to the actual kit I bought.
a year later. I set up a little hot chocolate bar next to it since it always has hot water ready.
Apple Teeth – Peanut butter, apples, and marshmallows
Deviled eggs with spiders – Make deviled eggs and cut up an olive to make the spider.
Ghost Cupcakes – Make white cupcakes and stack frosting fairly high, then decorate with black icing.
Owl Cupcakes – make chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Make eyes with Oreos and M & M’s.
