2018 Annual Family Zombie Photo - Halloween Tradition - Make-up / Photoshoot - ZOMBIE CLOWNS!!!


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
Our family tradition for Halloween is to take family zombie pictures. We look forward to this every year and if the make-up wasn't so labor intensive, we would probably do more during the year. 
Looking back at 10 family photos!

FREE Halloween Bingo Cards - Classroom themed game, School Party Idea, KIDS PARTIES or RETIREMENT HOME - Senior care



Sometimes I miss class parties with fun games and treats. ALWAYS being the classroom Mom it's a hard habit to break. I'm still planning and thinking of cute ideas even with my boys both in high school. This year especially since we are not throwing our annual Halloween party.

We volunteer everything Sunday calling bingo at our local retirement residence and usually decorate and bring fun treats during or on holidays. Not only did we decorate this year but we change to themed bingo cards!!!

The theme this year was spiders.

My decorating crew.

I used the little magnetic spiders I made for the office last year. 
Such a quick decorating idea. Make at home and up within minute.


We started with spider web in the center of each table with either a glitter skull or pumpkin. Added little spiders in the web and mini cauldrons I found at Target. 

I counted out enough candy to fill each cauldron to make them the same.  


Added cups of candy corn for covering the cards.



For the bingo cards, I looked online and was having the hardest time finding a full set of cards that was free to download. I did find one with numbers but realized AFTER I printed them that they didn't follow a true bingo board with the number for each letter. :( 

B- 1-15
I - 16-30
N - 31-45
G - 46-60
O - 61-75

I still needed to use our bingo ball cage with the balls. Changing it up too much would just confuse everyone. Plus they would need to search the entire card for the number instead of just that letter. They play three cards at a time!!!

PLAN B! Make my own!

I created 30 different cards.

They used candy corn to cover the numbers called.


You could also use little plastic spiders.




The residents absolutely loved the cards. We joked that they could eat the bingo chips. Lol!

CALLER CARD

Last card is a caller card to cross off the numbers randomly selected as you go. 

If you plan multiple games just use a different symbol to cross off the numbers - diagonal for the first game and another diagonal making a X for the second game, horizontal line, vertical line, or circle the number for each game after. You could also use colored sharpies.

Creepy HUMAN EYEBALL deviled eggs - HALLOWEEN party food/appetizer idea - MONSTER eyes - Tutorial - How to - KID or ADULT parties

This was a trial run and I absolutely LOVE how they turned out! So cool! So creepy!


I originally made these for our Halloween party last year. Made the test run and then tried to make them look like zombie eyes but it was a total FAIL! I wanted the white part green and the food color looked green in the pot I was soaking them in but they actually came out more blueish. Reminded me of something from SpongeBob. Lol!

I wish I had made HUMAN EYES or test run the color prior to a party. 



Be creative! Blue, green, brown, red or a mix of colors. 
Supplies:
Jumbo black olives
Food color
Large icing tip
Milkshake straw
Paint brushes or tooth picks
Hard boiled eggs. 

Cutting:
Cut off only a small portion of the narrow end of the egg. It might be a little harder to get they yolk out but slowly break it apart.

Make your favorite deviled egg recipe.

Large icing tip to remove the very center of the egg.


Milkshake straw (larger straw) to remove the"pupil"

Use the same straw to remove a piece of black olive.


Paint whatever eye color you want. 

Put it all back together with the olive pupil.

Fill with deviled egg mixture.

And gently add red "veins" to the side of the egg. It will bleed so use a fine paint brush or toothpick. Try to make the lines as thin as possible. 


Ta-da!!! I served the zombie eyes on spaghetti dyed black for the party. Looked awesome!
If you have any question, please let me know.
