Do you get to be in charge of the Halloween party at your kids school this year? I seem to always get volunteered by my son who casually slips into a conversation with the room mom that I am happy to be in charge of food or games. Then the call comes. One year as a first year elected volunteer I asked the room mom seriously if I got reimbursed for party costs or if I had a specific budget that had been allotted for the class of 27 kids. She gave me the look and replied with an answer that went along the lines of “your pocketbook.”
So how do you throw a fun kids party for not very much money? And more importantly, how do you do it and not add to the sugary fiesta that ultimately ensues with 27 kids who have had nothing to eat all day but sugar?
This year we are opting to bring some fun to our party with a hauntingly healthy Halloween drink. You will probably see this recipe floating around the web on other sites but most use Kool Aid. And even though that is the cheapest option sugar + artificial dyes + artificial flavors = disaster kid.
Our recipe uses several different healthier options to make sure your kids enjoy a fun and healthy Halloween drink.
Of course, the dogs have just as much fun with the ice too! If you look closely, you can see she looks like she’s been smoking.
