I smell children! EEEE! Exciting and tasty (just kidding, lol!). It’s Hocus Pocus time again, yay! I absolutely love this movie, a total cult-classic, in fact it was even named the all-time favorite Halloween movie out there. For me Hocus Pocus marks the start of every Halloween. It has also been the perfect way to introduce my kids to the fun of Halloween, casting a magical spell over them just as it did me.
This year, the 25th anniversary of running Amok, Amok, Amok, I decided it was time I threw a Hocus Pocus Halloween party. I based this Hocus Pocus party around “crafting” up a spell. A kids crafting party involving lots of fun with slime and stickers. The girls had such fun decorating witches cauldrons and filling them with purple fluffy slime potions. Get all the details HERE.
I hosted our crafting fun in front of a potion brewing fire, topping the mantel with a Sanderson broomstick backdrop and a mantel full of hocus pocus pumpkins. You’ll love these Sanderson approved DIY’s and free printable templates.
Use your bar cart as a mobile potion station. I had a lot of fun creating potion labels for these. It’s one of my first forays into printables. What do you think? Should I keep adding printables to my parties?

The best bit of this was making a HUGE! batch of fluffy slime with the kids. I love getting to do something messy and satisfying like this with them. Get the recipe HERE.
I mean look at this face!! It cracks me up. We made a whole cauldron full and mixed in all sorts of fun things. I got the coveted best mom award (for that day only I’m afraid! lol).
I hope this inspires you to start your own Hocus Pocus Halloween tradition. Pop on over to Fun365 for everything you need to See It, Shop It and Make.
