It is the week of Halloween, that probably means you are planning for your kids Halloween party at school or maybe even having one at your house. Since Halloween falls on a Friday this year, it is a perfect time to gather friends, dress up and celebrate together. Our town village always has Trick or Treating on the Sunday before Halloween. It has become a fun tradition to invite friends over to trick or treat with us. The weather was perfect (75!) and the kids had a blast.

Costumes and Halloween blow up Decor can be found on Chasing Fireflies.

We found 5 favorite DIY ideas that will make Halloween a lot more fun this year!

These DIY candy Ghosts from One Charming Party are not only cute but super simple way to dress up lollipops. Perfect for the kids to hand out at the school Halloween party.

We absolutely adore these adorable witch & owl cups from Mer Mag that kids of all ages will go crazy for! They will be a hit of the party! You can find the template Mermag created here.

By the time my kids actual go trick or treating at their grandparents on Friday night, they will have already worn their costumes at least 3 times! These DIY Halloween  masks found on  Oh Happy Day!  created by Mer Mag are perfect for a last minute costume or for the kids that have already worn their costumes several time and want to wear something different!

Halloween Playdough from Buggy and Buddy will be perfect activity for a playdate, school party or just a fun afternoon craft! You can let your kids use their Halloween imagination.

Our family has plans to watch some classic Halloween movies one night this week. These vampire floats from Shaken Together Life  will be a perfect partner to sip on with some fun candy corn popcorn. Did I mention they only have two ingredients? Yes, its true.:)

My kids and I love making "Dirt" dessert together. These Graveyard Parfaits from a Neighbor Food Blog are easy and adorable to serve at your Halloween party or for dessert tonight!

Popcorn is a favorite around here. The kids will love making this Halloween popcorn from Sing Your Supper with me. We will package it up in a cute container and drop it off at some of our friends houses for a "spooky" treat.
