4-H Halloween Party
Who: ALIVE 4-Hers and their families
Where: Melodie's place
What to bring: Bag of candy per child (see list below for allergies and suggestions), bucket/bag for trick or treating, snack to share (chips, cookies, etc), drinks for your family
Questions: email Laura

Come join the fun! Children are welcome to wear costumes! We will begin the party by decorating cardboard houses (which we will later use for trick or treating) and then continue with games, crafts and fun!

We will be having hotdogs for dinner. Hotdogs, buns, condiments, plates, silverware and napkins provided. Please bring chips, pretzles or a child friendly sidedish to share (no popcorn or peanuts please!).

Please be aware that we have children attending with the following food allgeries/adversions: nuts, red dye #40 and popcorn. We ask that you not bring any items with nuts or popcorn to the party. Since red dye #40 is hard to avoid, please just be certain before handing anything to Will that you check with me or one of his big sisters!

The following items are nut-free and would make great choices for sharing: individual bags of pretzles (avoid bags of chips as many are fried in peanut oil!), tootsie rolls, tootsie pops, dots, charm suckers, jr mint, charleston chews, andies mints, sugar babies, sugar daddy's,nerds, laffy taffy, airheads, bottle caps, sweettarts, smarties, crunch bars, plain m&m's, fruit snacks, individual bags of animal cookies, individual bags of oreos, individual bags of goldfish, bubble gum, Werther's carmels, regular carmels.

Will is able to eat: blue, vanilla, yellow and green laffy taffy, white, blue and green airheads, tootsie rolls (the chocolate ones), green and yellow suckers (as long as they have no gum in the middle!) and any chocolates (although the m&ms must be seperated to remove the brown, orange and red ones).

The kids had such a great time! Cade only wished that we had played more games than bobbing for apples and pass the pumpkin. Everyone got along so well and really seemed to enjoy themselves! The kids LOVE having their own 4-H group even if they were a little bummed that only kids from Ohio could participate. 4-H is very much a state controlled, even county controlled group which makes it a bit hard for homeschoolers that are so used to mingling with people from all over the place!
