Halloween Hostess

This year for Halloween, I decided to throw Emery and her 1-2 year old friends a little Halloween shindig. There are so many fun things for kids to do but I've found that a lot of them are still just a little too old for Emery so we threw a party just for one and two year olds. There were 5 kids including Emery there and it was just a fun little day. We'll have to make it a tradition!

The decorations...

Jefferson blew up a bunch of orange and black balloons when Emery went to bed. She was so excited when she woke up and saw all of the balloons. We put on music and had a balloon dance party as the party guests arrived and while we were waiting for the party to start.

Once everyone had had enough dancing we went out to the backyard to go Ghost Hunting. I had wrapped a bunch of dum dum suckers up like ghosts and put them in the grass for the kids to find.

Then we put halloween stickers on little foam Halloween shapes. Spiders, cats, skeletons, and pumpkins.

Then it was time for Pumpkin Painting! I'm pretty sure this was everyone's favorite activity. The kids all did such a good job painting and got to take home such cute little pumpkins.

Then, it was time to eat. Halloween cupcakes, cookies, and grapes/dip were on the menu for these cute little ones.

Once all of her party guests went home, Emery decided to have her own dance party.

Overall it was a success and it was so fun watching them all play and party!
