Chloe asked me if I was going to dress up for Halloween, and seemed quite disappointed when I replied no. After all, she LOVES dressing up. She already wore her Minnie Mouse outfit to dance class this morning and can’t wait to wear her mermaid costume this evening to trick-or-treat. She then told me I could be a witch, because she saw a black witch’s hat in our decorations box. So I said, okay, I’ll wear the hat. But now I’m thinking maybe I’ll take it a step further… maybe some face make-up, too. Then I found this awesome tutorial online. Yeah, I think I could rock that look… maybe. 🙂

Every Halloween I try to keep my eyes out for something out-of-the-ordinary to give away to our neighborhood trick-or-treaters. When I was a kid, I remember thinking, when I grow up, I’m going to give out full-size candy bars! That would be so cool! Except full-size candy bars now cost a lot more, and kids these days seem to be getting enough candy as it is. So I challenge myself with finding an alternative.
This year, we’ll be handing out “Cauldron Bubbles.”
I’ve considered mini bubble bottles before since they are so easy to find, except the ones I bought this year were not individually labeled. As I tend to over-think things, I began to worry that some kid without parental guidance might not realize what it is, or that it might be something to drink. So I whipped up these labels.
Feel free to download and print a set of labels to use for yourself – they’d be cute at a Halloween party, too!
Note: Keep in mind that these items might not be suitable for especially young children, so it might be good to have some candy on hand, just in case. 🙂
