Spooky Family Fun Night


The last time I posted a family fun night was a few years ago and they always went over really well with all of my readers! I am not really sure why I stopped taking pictures and posting about them... I guess I will start doing it again now! This week we did a "Spooky Family Night".


Here is the set up!

"Crawlin' Cupcakes"


"Spooked Punch"
(Root beer Floats)


Favors.


We made candy necklaces for our craft.


I got these from Walmart last year.
Scary that they are still another year from expiring...


:)


We watched about 10 episodes of 1990's Goosebumps.
The kids thought that they were funny... lol


Showing off crafts.




Dinner was a nacho bar.
The kids love when I set up DIY dinners.
They get to make everything just to their taste.

That looks like a LOT of fun! It's often the extra (lots) of little touches that really make something like this EXTRA special. You did such a great job! I'm sure your children have a ton of memories they'll always cherish. Thank you for sharing. By the way, I found your post through the Sunday Showcase.
