hello clever crafties

this year is our first big halloween party (my son is 5 october 20th so he is ahving a halloween disco)

i am buying bits like rubber bats and party bubbles and glowsticks to go in their party bags as i have found these quite cheap but id like to add a bit more before i start filling them with sweets and cake!

i was thinking for the girls bags making some black cat hair clips from normal clips and gluing on fimo cats..... but what for the boys?

im fairly crafty i can sew, do fimo and loads of other bits but i need something thats easy to make about 30 of  Huh

thanks in advance!

ok not really that crafty... but you can buy that slimey stuff in packs at the dollar tree. boys love anything slimey. I've found lots of cool labels that look vintage / poison and you could just relabel them.

also check out this link:

a lot of the links on here go to sets of labels. you could very easily adapt those. Or there's lots of those grow animals at the dollar store... where you put them in water and they grow. You could do snakes, octopus, etc. I've seen them there pretty recently.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I thought these were cute: http://jas.familyfun.go.com/recipefinder/display?id=50580. Maybe you could make some out of the circus peanuts (which I LOVE!) and put a couple in some celophane bags which would then go in a goodie bag?

As a child, I was always a fan of the edible hands, http://jas.familyfun.go.com/recipefinder/display?id=50580
of course, there are loads of various halloween cupcakes.

In addition, that website has some cute little Halloween crafts if you wanted to do as a group as part of the party Smiley
Oh & i'm not sure how much this helped with your goodie bag... but maybe you'll be inspired Wink
