Everyone has there favorite Halloween candy. I’m a chocolate gal and Kit Kats are one of my favorites. My daughter and I both go for the chocolate. I may have to secretly hoard some of the Kit Kats and chocolate goodies. If you can’t steal candy from your children then who can you steal candy from?! The fun thing about making these easy Halloween Kit Kat Bars is they come in different colors for a variety of Halloween things. I saw these in the store with white, orange and chocolate all in the pack. I knew they would be perfect for making cute Halloween creatures! read more

DIY Monster Headband

| DIY, Halloween

monster headband

My daughter loves to wear headbands! She also is big into dress up and pretend play. I wanted to make a monster headband for her and this diy monster headband was really fun to make. I used things we had around the house to make it. You can make it for pretend play or with a Halloween costume. A lot of monster costumes have a huge fuzzy part that goes over your head. Most kids I know wont wear costumes that cover up most of their head. You could then just glue a bunch of googly eyes on a dress and black felt for a mouth . Bam you have an easy no sew costume. This I thought would be fun for my daughter to wear to school without having to dress up in a costume. read more

I’ve been in to the ghost ideas this week for Halloween. These Halloween ghost crafts and desserts from around the web all look so fun to make! What is Halloween without ghosts?!

| DIY, Drink, Halloween

dress up wine with a ghost costume

I am so excited about Halloween! It is my favorite holiday because everyone gets to let out their inner child. Children get to have fun year round but Halloween is a chance for adults to also act like kids. There are plenty of kids crafts that I will be doing with my daughter. This diy is for the adults to dress up their drinks. These wine bottle ghosts are easy to make for Halloween parties. Also sometimes adults can use a little wine before trick or treating. They are a fun host gift to bring to parties, favors for adults. I love wine but you can make ghost beers, whiskeys, whatever you like. read more

Halloween Party Crafts and Treats

I can’t believe it is finally Halloween week! I have been so busy with Halloween projects for the past month. I thought it would be a good idea to put them all together in case you missed anything. These Halloween party crafts and treats are all easy to make for a fun Halloween party. We are definitely prepared for Halloween, at least with decorations and desserts. I still don’t have a costume but I always throw something together last minute. I keep seeing so many adorable diy costumes I just haven’t been able to decide. My indecisiveness leads to procrastination and then I will be up late the night before making a costume haha. My daughter on the other hand has been wearing her costume for the past couple weeks. She wants to wear it all the time! Hopefully it will make it to Halloween in one piece. read more

Glow in the Dark Halloween Printable

| Halloween, Printables

Glow in the dark Halloween printable to leave out with a bowl of candy while you are out trick or treating!

How fun is this glow in the dark Halloween printable?! I’m getting so excited for Halloween! Every year we go trick or treating on Halloween like many of you with kids do(or the ones without kids, why can’t adults get candy too?!). I may not be a kid anymore(just at heart) but I get really in to Halloween and love to dress up. Last year my daughter wanted to be a ghost and I got her the cutest ghost costume from Etsy. I thought it would be fun for her dad and I to dress up like Ghost Busters with our little ghost. By the way her dad and I aren’t together but we still dressed up together for Halloween with our daughter because we all love Halloween. We are either really weird or doing a good job at the co-parenting thing(most of the time). read more

Spider Web Candy Craft

| Crafts, Desserts, Halloween

Spider Web Candy Craft- make candy spider webs for a fun Halloween craft you can eat too! - Val Event Gal

We are officially in October, which means Halloween all day every day! Yes, I have been getting ready for the past month but now it is socially acceptable. My daughter doesn’t always like to hang up the decorations. She has a very specific idea of what she wants to do with everything. Usually the places she chooses to put things are in the middile of the room or right in the way of where we walk or in the bathroom. I have different ideas so we have a bit of a power struggle. Strong willed 4 year olds definitely let their opinion known but I find a way to win in the end. I thought we needed a Halloween craft that she could do whatever she wanted with and put it anywhere. That way she isn’t interested in my decorations. We made this spider web candy craft and it was an easy activity she loved. The great thing is there are so many ways to make a spider web. You can also eat it too! read more

Black Cat Cupcakes

| Cupcakes, Halloween

Black Cat Cupcakes - Val Event Gal

I’m getting ready for Halloween and what says Halloween more than black cats? Some people think of black cats as unlucky but I think they are cute! I had a mostly black cat when I was a kid. My parents let me pick out a cat when I was 5. Parents, do not let your kids get a pet unless you really want it to. My parents learned that the hard way. I named the cat Sarah because they told us it was a girl and I wanted a girl cat. Then we took her to get fixed and they told us Sarah was a Sam, meaning it was a boy cat. Then we called him Sammy. That cat was a bit of nightmare. He loved to bite and hated people. Most cats don’t like too many people but this one hated everyone. Except my mom, she spoiled him rotten and he loved her. In the end Sammy ended up being her cat. Seriously, don’t let a 5 year old pick out a pet they will never take care of it like they promise. ┬áHe was a pretty black cat though. I am not superstitious at all I think a black cat is just a cute cat. These black cat cupcakes are the perfect combination of creepy and cute! That is usually the goal for Halloween with a four year old a bit of creepy but still cute. My daughter thought they looked like owls, which you could do too just without the ears it’s an owl. read more
