Halloween Party Ninja Turtle Style….

It’s fun to take the theme of our costumes and include it in our Halloween Party. This year the hosts were:

Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo & Donatello! The four totally rad, pizza-eating Ninja Turtles!

I wanted to make the entrance be kind of sewer-like…. so we put up a bunch of black plastic tablecloths that I cut up. I used the fog machine to fog it up, and of course a giant hanging spider with glowing red eyes :), then by the front door, i turned on a recording we made with sewer noises- water dripping, rat noises and ninja turtles talking (made it sound like they were in the distance).

oooooooooh. I was having too much fun with this fog machine! Why have I not gotten one earlier?!

Couldn’t find a faux Brick Wall so I got a big canvas tarp thing from Home Depot and used a marker to draw bricks. (Kinda hard to tell with the light behind). It worked out great! And those cool Gamma lids? Look just like sewer lids :)

FOOD:

Anyone else forget about the Krang? I thought Cauliflower would be perfect for it… dying it pink didn’t work, so I just spray painted it and roasted another head to lay around it to eat. It was also hard to draw on it, but it does look creepy :)

Sliced up these turtle heads and dipped them in this delicious healthy Caramel Apple Dip.

 Turtle Jello Pops…. (Tip, Don’t put the candy eyes in until you’re ready to serve; if you’re being prepared and doing it ahead of time, they will melt giving it a freakish white floaty look. haha)

 Main course was of course PIZZA!!! And what better pizza then Papa Murphy’s!

 Toxic Ooze…. Lime sherbet + Lemon-lime soda… add some dry ice and it fits perfect

 When cups are filled with drink, they’re supposed to look like the Turtles heads.

 Some of the games for kids:

Shredder’s hidden prizes in shredded paper. We mixed a bunch of little prizes in with the shredded paper. Was it messy? oooooooh yea.

Made some “Toxic Ooze” and put them into little plastic tubes. Faith hid them and did “Hot or Cold” with the kids until they all found them! They were excited they got to keep it!
