Halloween Double Feature

On Friday night, we hosted a Halloween Party/Movie night. We served pizza, fruit, cookies and cupcakes. I had a craft for our guests: Halloween flashlight necklaces. They could be decorated as mummy, vampire, witch or a ghost. They can use them on Halloween night when they trick-or-treat.
I also had a couple of games. I put powdered donuts on strings and they had to eat them without using their hands. Powdered donuts are best because it get all over your face!

The second game was "Scary Mummy". They stuffed cheese balls in their mouths and say "Scary Mummy" after each one. One girl got 20 in her mouth before we couldn't understand her anymore. I also passed out glow-in-the-dark bracelets (15 for $1 at Michael's)
I used cupcake picks from Paper and Cake. Sorry the pictures are bad. I was very busy with the kids. :) We showed "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" first because we had little ones and they left before the next movie. At intermission, I made hot chocolate with Halloween marshmallow peeps. The final movie was "The Nightmare before Christmas".

I'm already planning for a Christmas movie get together. Last year, we showed "Elf" and decorated cookies.
Maybe I should just be concentrating getting my Halloween decor up :)

Oh how I dream of being at one of your parties! They are the best!

Love the movie night idea. I think next year I'm going to do those but for adults. Sounds like so much fun and a great way to get to decorate! Which of course is the best part of a party!

Will you provide some specifics on the flashlight craft? I'm thinking this would be a great idea for my church's Trunk or Treat. TIA
