Yesterday the kids and I threw ourselves an impromptu Halloween party with the help from our friends at Kmart. It was overcast and rainy..the perfect day to pick up some spooky supplies and create an entire day and evening of Halloween food and fun! Check out what we got and the festive food we made!
I told my 6 year old that we had a $100 budget for decorations and food and to my surprise we got a ton of stuff for $85 (plus $5 gift card for signing up for Kmart’s new rewards program!)
So what did we get… I knew you would ask!
For our spooky dessert we bought 2 snack packs of Vanilla Pudding $1 each, Clear disposable cups $3 and some change, and a bag of chocolate chips ($3) This is what we made… it is very simple. We call it monster pudding!
We used chocolate chips for his hair but you can also use crushed cookies.
For dinner we had Zombie Brains (pasta with pesto sauce) and garlic bread to keep vampires away!
Of course we picked up a bag of Candy Corn because it would not be a Halloween Party without it. The bags we 2 for $3 … how could I resist!
As for decorations, my son picked out a mini green strobe light ($5), caution tape that says “enter at your own risk” for our door $3.99, a very real looking crow for $6.79, 2 bags of Halloween mini rubber ducks (ghosts and pumpkins) for $3.99 each, and a spooky skeleton mask for $9.99.
For his little brother we bought some pumpkin sippy cups for $2.49 each and to adorn the table we bought a spider web table cloth for $5.99
Lastly my son grabbed some orange and black pumpkin gloves for only $1.49! He has been wearing them since we left the store.
I secretly slipped in a spooky DVD for mom and dad after the kids go to bed as well!
All of this for only $80 (minus the $5 gift card) – I must say that I was VERY surprised at the amount of options Kmart had for Halloween including more than one aisle of costumes all at very reasonable prices! My basket was so full I thought for sure we went over budget but no we were right on target!
