Tricks and Treats for a Successful Halloween Party

Published by Roseanne Peveto

Christmas ornament hook and hang them on the line. Your ghosts will slide back and forth as if flying. This is great to do outside also.

Big Bowl of Vomit:
Use the same recipe above to make Green Slime, but don’t put the gummy worms in yet. When you have the Green Slime made, put it in a big enough bowl to be able to stir it around if you don’t already have it in one. Now take a clean pair of scissors and cut the gummy worms into little pieces and put them in with the jello, these will be the “chunks in the vomit”. Pour a little bit of juice at a time into the bowl until you get the consistency you want. You can use any juice that will give you the color you’re going for. Stir it all together and now you have a big bowl of vomit! Serve it with a dipper and they’ll love it.

Bloody Amputated Arms and Hands:
You get to make meatloaf with this one! Get your favorite meatloaf recipe and mix it up. Use a large pan for cooking the meatloaf in. Shape the meatloaf into a long log, slim enough to look like an arm. You can make multiple pieces and fit them together in the end as well to make it longer. You can also shape it into a V shape to give the appearance of an elbow crook. Now cook the meatloaf in the oven. When it is done, take it out and let it set for a few minutes. Transfer the meatloaf onto your serving platter, or for a creepy “cooked arm” look you can leave it in the pan. Now use a clean glove with a little bit of paper towel or tissue stuffed into it to fill out the hand, and simply slip it over one end of the “arm”(meatloaf). Use Ketchup for the blood wherever you want it. You can make a smaller “wrist and hand” by just using a shorter piece of meatloaf and putting the glove on the end. It’s grotesquely fun and your guests will love it!

Dead Hands in the Punch:
Put on a latex or plastic glove and wash it thoroughly. Pull it off your hand so that it turns inside out and fill it with water. Close the open end of the glove by wrapping a rubber band tightly around it. Put it in the freezer until it’s completely frozen. Take it out and dip it in warm water to loosen the glove from the ice hand. Either gently slide the glove off the hand or cut it off with scissors. You can add food coloring to the water to color the hands. Float them in your punch for a fun effect!

Wiggly Jiggly Hands:
Do the same as above with the Dead Hands in the Punch, except use jello to fill the glove instead of water. Mix the jello as directed on the box and fill the glove, tie it off with a rubber band and put it in the fridge until the jello is firm. Dip it in warm water and gently slide off the glove. Put them all in a dish together or you can float them in the punch as well.

Green Slime:
Prepare green jello as directed on box. Put it in the fridge to firm up. The easy way to break up the jello instead of slicing it is to put your clean hand into it and start squeezing the jello into pieces until you have the desired consistency you want. You can put in some gummy worms for an extra touch. Serve in a bowl with a dipper and have fun!

Bloodshot Eyes:
Hard-boil as many eggs as you want to serve. Drain them and let them cool. Instead of peeling the eggs, hold one in your hand and gently crack it on the counter, then roll it forwards and backwards to crack the entire shell. Don’t remove the shell yet. Do this to all the eggs. Soak the eggs in water that has red food coloring in it for about 20 minutes or longer if you wish. Now drain and peel them. The cracked eggshells allow the red water to penetrate and stain the eggs in the pattern of the crackle, effectively giving them that bloodshot look. You can serve them just like this or stick an olive in a toothpick and into the egg for a pupil.

Be creative when planning your Halloween party. Having a party doesn’t mean you have to go out and spend allot of money on decorations and fancy foods. The best parties are the ones where you can tell the person throwing it has put their personal touch into it. It’s a wonderful way to show your family and friends that you care. The children will also love helping to make these fun decorations and recipes. It’s a great way to bring family and friends together for a fun holiday party that doesn’t have to cost an “arm and a leg”.
