    Default Girl Scout Halloween party

    Our Cadettes have been asked to host a Halloween party for some of the younger troops this year, this was something that they used to attend as Brownies/Juniors and now the torch has been passed! we want to make it as fun as we can, but of course keep the costs down (the girls are also saving $ for a trip to Hawaii next summer) so I thought I wuld come to my frugal friends and see what you guys have up your sleeves! I want to start brainstorming early, Halloween will be here before you know it! So...whatcha guys got?!

    One thing that we always did in Girl Scouts was make G.O.R.P. It's supposed to be a trail mix of sorts, but we always had each girl bring a bag of candy to share and then poured it in a huge bowl. The girls all felt like they were contributing to the event and it really cuts down on the cost of snacks for the party. Also, right now is a great time to get that stuff because, at least here, the Dollar General and Dollar stores already have halloween stuff out and you can get the inexpensive things now before everyone else has bought it up. Sounds like lots of fun!!

    Oh, and making the decorations. Gift ribbon with construction paper bats, spiders, etc. hanging. Use white crayons to make the faces "glow." I know it's an old game, but bobbing for apples is so much fun still! We also did a thing once where we hung dum-dum suckers from strings at different heights and they had to pull them off with only their mouth. Maybe blindfolded? I will have some more later! I love these things. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown would be a good movie to play.

    The Oriental Trading Company would be a good place to look to find an inexpensive craft idea for larger groups or to get ideas.

    Good Ole Raisins and Peanuts was what we were told. We have never done the traditional trail mix with gorp though.

    Oh, I remember making the GORP in Brownies! I have no idea what it stands for, but I remember it. I think we were given a choice between bringing a cereal or a candy. It made it slightly healthier, I guess. And I personally like the flavor of the cereals mixed with the chocolate.

    Last year at the little school I was at we had a Fall Festival and did the following

    face painting
    bobbing for apples
    costumes
    cake/cookie walk (had parents donate goodies)
    "fishing booth" they got some small prizes

    It was lots of fun!
