With a wide range of ages among the kids on the street we like to keep the movies just a little spooky and not too scary. Mystery in Care-a-Lot is the perfect for this! With 3 spooky episodes, focused on the power of caring and sharing, it is delightful for all ages. This DVD is broken down into 3 episodes makes perfect timing for little ones and gives great party transition time for getting set up with crafts and games! “Join the the Care Bears for a Halloween-themed adventure filled with friendship and good cheer. The Bears show the power of caring and sharing as they transform bad dreams into sweet ones, solve the mystery of the legendary Scare Bear, and save Care-a-Lot from turning into Grump-a-Lot in this delightful collection that kids and their families will love!” (Get a copy for your Halloween party here!)

Treats not Tricks

When kids are having to spend lots of time indoors, filling them up with sugary confections with no where to burn off the extra energy is a very frightening thought so opting for these treats may help keep things fun and under control.

Dark Chocolate covered apples– Take a twist on the traditional caramel covered apples. The pairing of dark chocolate and apples create an antioxidant-rich dynamic duo that may help protect your heart.

Spiders on a log– This concept is pretty self explanatory just adorn your almond butter filled celery sticks with a plastic spider or two.

Mandarin Oranges made into pumpkins

Cheese Stick ghosts
