I won’t say I’m totally overwhelmed, but tomorrow at this time I’ll have a dozen rowdy fourth graders ready to party and enjoy Halloween at my place.
It’s all because I not only like to party, but I like to host parties too. I mean, how better to enjoy how my children socialize with their peers and enjoy all those cute kid Halloween costumes without any trick-or-treating being involved? As long-time readers will know, I actually host lots of parties for my kids, ranging from high schoolers on down. And every single one — knock on wood! — has been fun and no hassle at all.
Except this time we need games and things to do. Older kids can crowd around a TV or just talk, but these young ‘uns, it’s going to go a lot more smoothly if we have some activities, games and even possibly some cooking projects.
I suggested Pin The Brain on the Zombie, but my 9yo K- suggested that might not be a theme that other kids (or their parents!) would appreciate. Which told me that quick games of Murder the Camp Counselor with the Loosest Morals and Duck, Duck, Psycho Killer were completely out. Go figure. 🙂
So, Moms, Dads, teachers, got some suggestions for us before the game becomes Rock Star in a Hotel Room?
My whole family, and possibly the entire neighborhood, thanks you.
