Witch’s Lunch!

Halloween! By far my favorite Holiday! Everything about it I absolutely adore!
The decorations! The treats! The Spookiness of it all!

It’s time to get our Spook on here at Blue Cricket! I’m ready to post about all the things I love most about this time of year! Look forward to decorating ideas, party fun, pumpkin carving and so much more! I’ll be featuring my favorite finds for the Holiday!

Let’s dive in…

Last year I hosted a little Witch’s Lunch for my girls and their friends! I was in heaven! Honestly I think I was more into this then they were! I created Halloween treats and we sat down to a kid friendly meal that was a huge hit!

Witches Brew: Limeade with plastic spiders and Gummy worms!

Spider Eggs: Tater Tots and Plastic Spiders!

Shrunken Heads: Peeled Apples and licorice!

Mummy’s: Hot Dogs wrapped in Pillsbury Croissants that were first cut into strips.

A new family tradition was born! This year I’m on the hunt for more festive dishes and treats to serve at our Witch’s lunch!

Send me your favorite edible ideas! They may be featured in an upcoming “Readers Rock!” post where I’ll feature submitted ideas from YOU!

Happy first day of FALL!

    It can't be true witches brew without some dry ice. We do this every year and my kids talk about it all year! It's a hit.

    I would not have thought of it for Halloween… my daughter is in school so maybe on a saturday or something.
    One year we did a Gingerbread house decorating party that was alot of fun…

    Great ideas!!
    http://www.theidearoom.blogspot.com has some cute edible eyeballs (made from pudding), and some blood worms made from jell-o that look real! She has a few other ideas. She has a cute idea for a Halloween apothecary. Also, have you seen the frozen hand you put in the melted witch juice? Love that idea.

    Love this idea! I think you inspired me to host a little get together for my kids friends!

    My oldest is in 5th grade and we've been doing this every year for her lunch at school. I wrap everything (so she can't see what it is) and label it. This year, her class party is before lunch, so her lunch will not have as much. She will be having Boogers on a Stick. Long Pretzel Rods dipped in Cheez-Whiz (with green food coloring). Putrid Punch..water with food color and ice cubes with a gummy worm frozen inside. Snack-O-Lanterns…carved oranges filled with fruit salad and 'Dem Bones…Scooby Snacks (graham crackers) dipped in white chocolate.

    For my little one, I'll add a bag of Rat Poo and Bat Claws (cashews and choc. chips) to her lunch in place of the Boogers above. :)

    Every year, I have to think of something different to keep my oldest on her toes. If you'd like more ideas, would love to share. Thanks so much for sharing yours! I'll have to add some plastic spiders!! ;)

    Just a question, but would the same situation apply to other types of user fees the school system charges? For example, if we eliminated user fees for athletics, would the state have to pick up the dinecrefef?
