Ghoul Punch: This one has so many spooky elements I hardly know where to start. Creepy color, really creepy floating hand, and spiders—oh my!

Scary Sippers: Mummy juice boxes (as opposed to mommy juice boxes) are cute and easy to make. Wrapping the mummies is a great way for the kids to get involved in party prep, too.

Spooky Banana-Berry Smoothies: These aren’t so much spooky as they are freakin’ adorable! And don’t be intimidated by the meringue eyes; meringue is really easy to make. If bananas aren’t your thing, or if you just want to offer different flavors, there’s a blueberry recipe, too, that uses lemon yogurt. Yum!

Bat Juice Halloween Mocktail: Well. This looks absolutely disgusting, so children are sure to love it! It’s ridiculously simple recipe that will have you wondering, “Why didn’t I think of that?”.

Blue Slime Sipper: With tiny chunks of gelatin mixed with lemonade, this is definitely a drink for the brave. Or at least experimental. It reminds me of a quote from The Lion King: “Slimy, yet satisfying.”

Sometimes, it’s not about what you’re drinking as much as it’s about how you drink it, as these next ideas demonstrate.

Glow in the Dark Beverages: This one is less of a recipe and more of a spooky party pro tip: adding tonic water to a beverage will make it glow under a black light. For more details, check out this link.

Candy Cobweb Drink: This is a fun idea that will lend a creepy edge to whatever beverage you want to serve: Candy Melt cobwebs with optional spider crawling up the straw. *shudder* An easy-to-make decoration to dress up a ready-made beverage or make your favorite Halloween creation even more Halloween-y.

Spooky Fog Drinks: For some reason, Thriller is running through my head non-stop right now. Anyway, check out this post for details on making an eerie fog that will creep out of your guests’ glasses. (For those of us who love the whole learn-through-play philosophy and/or teachable moments, this is also an excellent little science lesson waiting to happen.)

Christina lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, daughter, and two English Springer Spaniels. Before becoming a reluctant stay-at-home mom, she worked in a variety of customer-service-oriented jobs while dreaming of living in the lap of luxury as a housewife. Unfortunately, having a child threw a wrench in Christina's plan to do nothing but eat bonbons while lounging in the Jacuzzi reading all day. Now, she spends her time looking for fun activities and crafts for her daughter and easy-to-prepare meals for her family, while trying not to land the kid in therapy when she grows up. Christina volunteers at several different places, and her particular passion is for her role as a sexuality educator. She loves to read, and to learn about--and share--new products and resources.
