Halloween Printable Games

What could be easier?  Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties. We plan the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food. But we never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves.  (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute).

And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there. It is then we realize things aren't going so well.  We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing.  There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation.  That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy.  In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening.  Don't get caught in a scary spot.  Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice.  Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!

One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom.  Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.

Make The Switch Witch Part of Your Family Halloween Tradition

We just came across this post, Switch Witch ? The Solution to TOO MUCH Halloween Candy, from our friends over at MomMeMatch  (the site that has put together by far the best collection of  family matching Christmas pajamas we have seen to date).  They tracked down the Switch Witch, featured on Shark Tank a few years back, and although the proprietors did not get a deal, they remind us that the Switch Witch is still a fun solution to TOO MUCH Halloween Candy. Best yet, we just checked and the Switch Witch is available with the Amazon Prime One Day Shipping option so you can still get it delivered to your doorstep in time for Halloween! Continue Reading →

Cute Costumes for Teenage Girls

Teen Costumes ! Looking for the perfect costume? A fashionable teen costume for Halloween, plays, parties or other events?  There are so many costumes from which to choose, Party Idea Pros is highlighting just a few of our favorites.

Most teenage girls we know travel in packs and love coordinating their costumes.  One year all the high school girls dressed as storybook characters.  Another year they all dressed in neon.  Not sure yet what this year will bring … crayons, candy, goth, witches, goddesses, sesame street, superheroes?   Whatever they choose, I have no doubt the teen costumes will be too short and too sexy for their parents' taste!

Click on the links or pictures for the teen costume for details but remember, the photos below just give you the overall look. Quite often you can choose from a variety of options ranging from almost dowdy to quite sexy, so be sure to click on the “see more” links option when you visit the costume site.  Many of these costumes are specially sized just for a teen but don't worry if they are not.  Most of the x-small or small adult costumes will fit just fine.   If they are cut a bit too low for your taste,  add a tank top underneath.  If they are too short … that's why leggings were invented.  🙂

Best Pi Beta Phi Arrow Necklaces

It is that time of year. School is starting and pledge season follows shortly. So we thought it might be the perfect time to once again share our hands down favorite Pi Beta Phi arrow gift.

For years we have been proclaiming that if we could own one and only one piece of jewelry that screamed Pi Beta Phi, it would be these stunning Stella & Dot “On the Mark” Arrow Necklaces.  It is amazing how one small icon can embody the essence of a Pi Phi woman:  strong, bold, direct, and purposeful yet  subtle, delicate, and feminine. This beautiful arrow necklace is a must have for any Pi Beta Phi, pledge or alum.  Buy one for yourself and one for your big and  little sister.  Not only will the arrow necklaces  remind you of where you have been but it will also keep you pointed in the right direction going forward.
