Halloween Help

Hey everyone. i live in Australia and my husband is from America so he use to celebrate Halloween every year. so this year i want to have a weekend of craft watching movies and eating yummy food. But I dont know where to start.
I love love halloween even though I have never really celebrated it. I love going on sites and looking at EVERYTHING that you can get.
So I need help suggestions on what are the best things to eat, play and do for Halloween
My children ages are 7, 3 and 2
Thanks Happy

Well, I always think of halloween as a time to dress up and eat candy. I would dress the kids up (anything they want to be) and just modify the party to suit halloween.. like insted of pin the tail on the donkey.. you could do pin the wart on the witches nose and use candies as prizes. The internet has tons of ideas.. here is a link to some spooky recipes that the kids can help with

carving pumpkins is always fun but it gets messy. making cupcakes/cookies and decorating them with halloween colors or spiders i seen some cute witch cup cakes the other day surfin the web.. you can make a scavenger hunt like make two groups and make a list of things to find like black cat, pumpkin, old lady lol then what ever group finds the things first gets a prize theres so many things. were having our halloween party next sunday Happy if carving the pumpkins is to much of a mess or to hard you could paint them. bobbing for apples

There is so much you can do so hard to pick. But I do like the scavenger hunt, that will be fun.
And so doing pin the wart on the wichess nose Happy

well pumpkin carving is pretty hard might want to stick with paint i barely carved my first one last year lol my one year old helped take the insides out. that would be kewl if you got the neighbors to join in like 3 of them then the kids could go door to door and get a bag of treats or something.. im excited for it lol now that im too old to go trick or treating im glad i have two kids to go for me lol
