Halloween is coming up and this year I came up with a fangtastic Halloween mystery dinner menu. Each year I make jack-o-lantern quesadillas for lunch but as my kids get older I want to make sure they have a healthy Halloween dinner before heading out to trick-or-treat. This mystery dinner menu will definitely make dinner fun and fill them up with good food! There are lots of fun Halloween dinner ideas out there, but so many take SO much time. I like that this way, I can cook food I know they’ll eat, and still theme it in a really fun way! If you’re hosting a Murder Mystery Dinner, this would be the PERFECT activity to get things started! And don’t forget to set the table with fun Halloween dinnerware!

I love coming up with our family Halloween costumes each year and this year was no different! If you’ve seen our Monster Halloween door decoration and our Monster Trunk or Treat idea, you probably guessed that our family halloween costume would be Monster themed as well! I wanted easy halloween costumes so I purchased pieces and did a little DIY on some. So, if you’re on the hunt for some funny halloween costumes or some cheap halloween costumes, look no further! Let me show you how easy it was to make!
Family Halloween Costumes
Because I’m going to be wrangling kids all day I wanted one that I could wear easily. This was the perfect compromise to being dressed up but still functional. I started with a plain teal t-shirt.

Each year we attend a Trunk or Treat in my in-laws neighborhood. It is amazing to see the trunk or treat decorating ideas people come up with! My favorite part about a Trunk or Treat is that it brings everyone outside and it feels like a PARTY! I wanted to create an easy trunk or treat idea to share and came up with my Trunk or Treat Monster! Isn’t it cute?! It took about an hour to assemble the decorations and about 30 minutes to put it all up. Not bad for a totally awesome trunk! My neighbors thought I was a little odd staging this in my yard in September, but that’s what bloggers do. And, now it is all ready to put up on Halloween!
**Now, a word on adhesive. Use painters tape or masking tape if you are adhering something to the paint of your car.

Easy Trunk or Treat Idea
Halloween is my favorite holiday! With my daughter now in first grade I get to make her a lunch for school each day (these are my favorite lunch containers). I’ve had fun using my free printable lunch box jokes, but as Halloween approaches I wanted something themed for the season! These Halloween lunch box jokes are easy to read and easy for kids to understand! Best of all, they are a free printable! Just scroll below to print the document and your kids will have giggles along with their lunch! What a great way to help them through their day!

It’s no secret that Halloween is my favorite holiday! I love coming up with new Halloween decorations to display each year. Doing our Halloween door decoration just might be one of my favorite things of the whole season! The Skeleton door was fun, the Frankenstein door was cute, the spider web door was creepy crawly and the witch door was fun to theme my entire porch! This year our family theme for Halloween is MONSTERS! But, not the scary kind, the fun and silly kind! So, our halloween costumes will be monsters, our trunk or treat will be monsters and naturally, our front door will be a cute furry monster! Now, I need help naming him – got any suggestions?

Tomorrow I’m hosting a Halloween party/play group for my daughter and her friends and I wanted to quickly share the activities we are going to do. These would be perfect for a family Halloween party, a preschool Halloween party or even a younger Elementary school Halloween party. They are easy to put together, don’t cost much at all and will keep the kids so happy! I think they would be perfect to do as a family after school so your kids aren’t itching to go Trick-or-Treating at 4:00 pm. 🙂
So, here we go – some really EASY HALLOWEEN GAMES to add to your weekend festivities!
EASY HALLOWEEN GAMES
I’m excited to share with you my Halloween porch decorations this year. In years past, I’ve just focused on my front door (see my Skeleton, Frankenstein and Spider’s Web doors that are super easy DIY projects), but this year I wanted to decorate my entire front porch. I was inspired by the severed fingers I made last year to do a Witches theme and I think it turned out awesome!
I got a few new pieces to amp up my decor from the Halloween section of Oriental Trading and they were perfect! I still got to do a little bit of DIY crafting, but these pieces saved me a ton of time and look great!

With just a few dollars and a few supplies, I turned a “Cousin It” looking bush/tree in my front yard into a Halloween MONSTER! Let me explain how you can DIY your own Monster Tree Eyes to spookifiy (or add hilarity) to your yard for Halloween!
