Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit

Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit

It is still not too late to begin planning this year’s family Halloween party!  Some of our favorite childhood memories are the years we all met at Max, Harry & Jack’s house for a fun pre-trick or treating Halloween dinner party.  Their mom, Karen, always had a healthy dinner planned so the kids would not dive right into their trick or treat bags before all the parents had a chance to go through the treats and weed out any suspicious looking or unwrapped “tricks”.

Other than the actual trick or treating, the kids’ favorite part of the night was when Karen escorted them to a huge crafting table set up so each child had their own Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit. Karen always purchased a basic Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit from The Popcorn Factory.  Each Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit came with eight of their delicious signature Popcorn Balls and an array of decorating candy extras – basically, everything you would need to transform the yummy popcorn balls into ghoulies and ghosties and delicious things that go bump in the night. It truly was great family fun!

And best yet, now through Halloween (or while supplies last – yes The Popcorn Factory often runs out of these kits long before Halloween), you can get Get the Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit for $29.
Party Hearty!

Ready, Set, Hike! Printable Football Games

Ready, Set, Hike! Printable Football GamesIf you’ve been put in charge of hosting this year’s Super Bowl party, or any football themed party, having the right mix of food, entertainment, and company will keep the party flowing in between passes and touchdowns.

While typically during any “Bowl” party, guests will be focused on the football game, there will always be those commercial breaks, half-times, or the guests who come for the food more than watching the actual game itself. For situations like this, providing additional entertainment, like printable football games is a great option. Plus, you can literally purchase and print them out 5 minutes before the party starts.

If kids are invited to the party, most likely they aren’t going to want to watch an entire 3 hour football game. Having a fun game option for them, like a pin the football game, will give them a break and give them a chance to just be kids. Plus, recruiting the adults, blindfolding them, and making them pin the football on the quarterback would most likely be worthy of recording and posting to YouTube, too.

And for the grown-ups, even if you don’t have a designated time at the party to play games, you could always set out a few trivia themed printable football games. Make sure the guests know that prizes will be awarded to the guest who gets the most answers correct by the end of the game. This will encourage some fun competition during the party. And who doesn’t love the chance to win a prize?
