A Halloween Play Date

I love any reason to throw a party so I decided for all of our little friends I'd host a Halloween play date/party this past Monday.
I found the majority of my supplies at the dollar store and the Target $1 section

And just had a simple infant/toddler/preschooler friendly Halloween theme of pumpkins, black cats, and other friendly looking decor

I had a pumpkin with each of their names on it

And some fun Halloween baskets for trick or treating

We had a coloring station

A play with as many toys as you possibly can station

and a pin the nose on the pumpkin station

It was also our friends birthday so we of course had to sing Happy Birthday. If you need a way to get kids attention, just put a candle in a cupcake, the kids were mesmerized!

The kids also got to decorate their own mini pizzas too. I used Pilsbury's whole wheat biscuits, Contadina squeeze pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and then whatever toppings they wanted. I didn't get a picture of this because I'll be honest, it was kind of madness!  But there were some really cute jack-o-lantern and mummy pizzas!


I also had a jack-o-lantern veggie tray


And I tried to make a mandarin orange/blueberry fruit tray that looked like a jack-o-lantern but that wasn't quite as easy!

After we ate the kiddos went and trick or treated around the room. Each mom brought a fun little snack/prize for each kiddo.

They were a little confused but it was fun!

Overall the Halloween play date was a ton of fun and a success! 

Not easy to get a picture of all of the little ones though...

haha!

I had to check the address bar in my browser because excuse me, did I stumble upon PINTEREST?! Lord, woman! You can rock a deployment! Love the veggie tray. I've literally never seen that before, but now I want to do it.
