essential halloween instant dance party

Because after your kids have eaten 37 Kit Kat bars, there’s nothing to do but dance! Halloween begins with good intentions and a few ground rules. The goal is to minimize our children's sugar intake while they enjoy a holiday that, anecdotal evidence suggests, is one of their favorite days of the year. There’s a lot of good advice out there on making Halloween more about tricks than treats, turning candy into currency that kids can trade for special privileges at home (one package of Sour Patch Kids will buy 15 minutes of electronics or an extra book at bedtime), or sending a candy care package to the men and women serving in the armed forces. We do all of those things. But still. Somehow the kids still manage to eat a boatload of chocolate, lollipops, and all manner of gummy shapes by the day's end (and with Halloween falling on a Monday, it’s a weekend long extravaganza of parties, wigs, make-up, and a diet rich in artificial color). Plain truth - the kids are getting amped up on sugar. And they’re gonna need to work it out. We’re bringing a small crowd back to our place after Sunday afternoon Trick-or-Treating to share a nice meal, some classic apple-bobbing, and a quick dinner-time dance party. The playlist, the current hit parade, is compiled by my daughters and their friends (including a mellow cool down, all available on itunes). A great way for the kids to work off the excess energy and excitement of a day filled with joy and m&ms. And don't forget to brush!
