This event is Halloween and people in Argentina don’t really celebrate because in Carrefour they were skipping it and going straight to Christmas. There wasn’t much to buy but we DID find this funky skeleton who’s really got the moves:
And then we decided to make our own decorations. We made bats, spiders and pumpkins and lots of other games to play at our party.
We are living in an estate and we have some lovely neighbours and we invited them over for our party. There were 2 twin boys at the age of 6 and a mother and father. Their names were Martin, Nacho (who are the twins), and Tatiana and Eduardo (who are the mother and father).
Our family dressed up and Daddy was a a crazy gaucho:
Mummy was wicked witch:
Rob dressed up as a scary skeleton
Bella was a villainous vampire
And I was a spooky black cat
We hid the games in our bedroom (until it was time to play), and scared off invaders with our spider corridor trick:
These are some of the games we played and made:
The slime bath we made was sticky and icky and it was very Halloweeny because it was bright green.
We did bowling which was very cool because we made the skittles ourselves. We made them out of beer cans, black card and chalk. I made Daddy, and Mummy and Rob drink a lot of beer to get enough cans to make the game!
We paid some traditional games like pass the parcel, musical statues, pop the balloons, apple bobbing, tube stacking, and stick-the-spider-on-the-web. We got candies as prizes for all the games.
We made a game where there were 3 different compartments in a box and you had to stick your hand in and guess what was in the compartment while your hand was in it. We put ketchup water in one, mushed banana in another and dried pasta in the last one. Everyone said “euwwwww, thats disgusting!”
The last game we played was donuts-on-strings where you have to eat the donuts without using any hands.
After that we had a wonderful candlelit dinner that Daddy cooked on the Asado.
After dinner our final game was toilet papering people to make them look like a mummy. It was very fun and toilet paper went everywhere.
And guess what happened the next morning to the 3 donuts that were left over:
We love you Pinto!
