Halloween Kiddie Swap

Denise over at Polka Dot Moon organized a Halloween Kiddie Swap. Packages were to go out today but I ran out of packing tape so it will be delayed 1 day. I thought I would share what I packed up for the recipients. The budget was $10 and let's just say I had A LOT of fun at the many dollar stores around here!
Everything is packed into a witches cauldron and it includes Halloween headband, glow sticks, skeleton straw, pencils and erasers, pumpkin note pad, light up ring, pumpkin bubbles, glow-in-the-dark ball, wooden ghost craft, witches cauldron sour candy, tootsie rolls and tootsie pops, glitter drinking cup, spider rings, bobble head gum dispenser and a Halloween idea booklet from Joann's.
Here is a bobble head bubble gum dispenser. Look at the detail on her face...so cute! I mean, SCARY!
This is a fun drinking cup I found at Target. I wrapped everything up in tulle and polka dotted ribbon. I hope the kids like everything! My kids are big Halloween fans and can't wait for their packages!

You sure did get a lot for $10. Very cute idea for a swap. Can't wait to see what your kids get.

I loved the Tinkerbell party too. Another great party!

Oh and I don't know if you noticed but we had just taken Trinity to get her Rock Star Hair done too! Great minds think a like.

Only we didn't get to meet Julie! Lucky girl you are!

Hugs,
