I’ve been scouring Pinterest and let me just say that there are some super creative and a little disturbing Halloween Recipes out there. I’ve narrowed it down to these 40 Gross recipes for kids ,but Healthy(ish) Halloween Food Ideas that your guests will love!
Gross Recipes For Kids
My daughter is throwing a Halloween Party at our place this year. In other words a bunch of teens in dress up that I will be watching all night. Like a hawk. I remember being 17 …..
Our farm is pretty much in the middle of nowhere so when I turn off the lights, the only glow you see is that of the moon. I reckon if we throw in a random sheep wandering around in the dark, making footsteps and breathing noises … well, I think that would be enough to scare even the bravest teen boy into staying within my view.
