"Trick or Treating" on Halloween party
My four year old daughter Emma last year attended a Halloween party, which was absolutely amazing. Each child obviously dressed up in their own Halloween costume, and went "trick or treating" in the house!
The house had about eight rooms, and in each room, an adult was there to give out candy. Then they had a "scary" part, in which the children were blindfolded, and went around touching items.
For instance, there was a bowl of spaghetti, and the kids were told it was "brains." There were "scary" sounds in the background (the song "monster mash," and creeping and screaming sounds), and after touching about five items, the blindfold was taken off, and an adult jumped out of a box saying "boo," which scared the kids, but nothing terrible!
After that, they were each given their own small pumpkin, and had the opportunity to carve it. The seeds were then given over to the person running the party, and made into pumpkin seeds, which were eaten while "scary" stories were read from a book with the kids listening.
They had their black cat that the kids could pet, and decorations were abound! It really was a great party, and my daughter had a wonderful time!
