You can create an awesome riddle hunt around your home that your family and friends will enjoy.
Ghostly Halloween Party Plan
Begin by creating an event in Riddle Me. Assign a Halloween themed event name and include some special instructions asking the kids to dress up in themed party costumes such as an action figures, movie characters, or Halloween ghouls. Create invitations using your own text, and decide on paper invites, e-card invites, or both. Add an image, and print your invitations.
With Riddle Me, you can select from riddle hunts or traditional scavenger hunts and customize these online games to match your Halloween theme. Select an indoor or outdoor hunt and specify the age of the participants and Riddle Me will do the heavy lifting for you and give you a pdf file to print out your clues. You can create your own clues if you’re the creative type and want to direct your participants to a unique location in your home. Once your riddle or scavenger hunts are under way, you have time to mix up some special treats and potions the kids can enjoy when they complete their activities.
Ghostly Halloween Snacks
Kids are often more interested in how their drinks look than what’s in them. Create a healthy smoothie that resembles a ghoulish element. Lots of strawberries can look like blood, and then add some synthetic eyeballs or colored Halloween themed ice cubes to create some interest.
Prepare a fruity punch in a gallon punchbowl. Pick up some “food grade” dry ice to create a fog just before serving. Use about 3 lbs of dry ice in a large piece for a gallon of punch (at room temperature). Do not add regular ice. Ladle the punch into fun cups, making sure no dry ice debris that may have floated to the top is included.
Some other ideas: Serve a zesty cup of hot apple cider with a little cinnamon and a spoon. Decorate large white marshmallows as ghosts, using black licorice for eyes, and place the marshmallows on top.
Assemble a no-bake cookie eyeball, dip it in white chocolate, and drizzle on some red frosting veins. This simple cookie recipe can be made in 30 minutes, and the kids love them. Mix quick oats, chocolate chips, and coconut in equal parts to serve a crowd (recipe proportions below). Add one-half that amount of peanut butter, flaxseed, and honey, and finish with some vanilla flavoring. Refrigerate and then roll into balls. Melt white chocolate for dipping, and then drizzle with fun red frosting. An M&M pupil is perfect.
