We had our trunk-or-treat last night at church. Our youth group put it on and I was uber proud of them. The youth were to dress up as characters from Peter Pan. (which also happens to be Sally Jane's costume choice this year) She felt like she was standing next to a super star when she got a photo with one of the YM who came as Peter Pan.
Today my friend and I put together the treat bags for the Halloween party. I came up with this idea last year and will do it every year until my kids are out of school. A local dentist donated toothbrushes along with his business card. I dropped them in a paper sack, stapled the top with a die cut I made at the school and the poem that my friend Mindy's mom wrote for the occasion. I realize this helps no one for your school parties tomorrow but it is a great treat bag idea for the future. (I don't mean that to sound as braggy as it does)
Trick-or-treating on Halloween night
Is fun, fun, fun and quite a sight.
With ghosts and goblins and heroes, too,
All in costume, which one are you?
We'll get Smarties, suckers, chocolate and more
Lots of goodies at each friend's door.
They taste so good, they're fun to eat
Who can resist a Halloween treat?
But candy can really stick to our teeth
And sometimes the sugar is hidden real deep.
So brush your teeth till they're shiny and bright
And have a fun time on Halloween night.
