Slimy Eyeball Search
These creepy body parts will keep them guessing!
What You Will Need:

5 medium-sized bowls
Grapes
Dried apricots
Banana peel
Surgical glove
Flour
Rubber band
Cooked spaghetti
5 small cardboard boxes

First, prepare your "body parts." Peel the grapes and put them in a bowl for eyeballs. The dried apricots in a bowl feel just like a mummy's ear. Cut a piece of the banana peel into a tongue-size piece and oil it lightly to create the tongue of a prehistoric creature. Fill the surgical glove with flour, secure the top with a rubber band and place in a bowl to make the hand of a witch.

Place the cold cooked spaghetti in a bowl and call it goblin brains. In the side of each cardboard box, cut two round holes just big enough to slip a hand through. Place one bowl of touchy-feelies into each box and seal it. Make a label with the name of the touchy-feely body part for each box. At the party. have each child reach in and feel!


Edible Crocodile Toes
You can make these part of your touchy-feely activity (it feels so sublimely slimy!), or serve them on a plate for a treat.

What You Will Need:

2 large packages of lime Jell-O
2 1/2 cups boiling water
Large cookie sheet

Place the Jell-O in a large bowl and pour in the boiling water. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. Pour into the cookie sheet and refrigerate several hours until firm. Cut the gelatin into big oval toes with a sharp claw at the end (your child will love to help with this part!). To remove. briefly place the bottom of the pan in warm water and use a spatula to gently lift the toes out.
