Halloween with a Toddler #2

My top 5 trick or treat ideas I did this year. 1-Guess how many are in the jar? On Monday  we had a Halloween party for Poppy and her monster friends, for the adults, we had the idea of putting sweets in a jar I already had at home, and some spiders (count the sweets and spiders before adding them in the jar, we nearly forgot.) then let all the adults guess how many there are! Simple and easy. 2- trick or treat party bags I found this cute dotty pack of 24 sweets bags in tkmaxx for only £2. I filled the kids party bags with sweets and stickers. Great for Halloween favours or if you want to go extra for those knocking on your door im sure they will go down a treat! 3- trick or treaters pick and mix plate  We have recently moved house so im finding things i forgot i had. And this year i put together a large gold plate (I use these for xmas usually) put some sweets and decoration on to give it that kid friendly spooky look.  4- kids halloween party
