I will be that Mom that sends fun holiday boxes to my boys in college (along with their dorm mates of course). We have always loved holidays and I love making up fun little surprise bags or boxes for the boys. Even though they are getting older, I still want to have fun and get them little surprises. One of the snacks we ALWAYS have in this house are meat sticks and one of the boys’ “regulars” are Slim Jims! Slim Jim is running an awesome Halloween sweepstakes and I have some Halloween surprise bucket inspiration for you.
The boys and I had a talk this year after I got a little “we’re getting older Mom” speech. I told them they could get older but that didn’t mean we had to stop carving pumpkins or getting fun holiday surprises. So instead of the year long talk about what they are dressing up as, I surprised them with a little Halloween bucket.
I got a bowl/bucket at Walmart along with some things to fill it up with. I started off with a snack that is perfect for balancing the candy over the next week – Slim Jims! You can find these in the regular Slim Jim aisle which just happened to be the seasonal aisle at our Walmart.
I got both original (for Parker) and mild (for Colton).
Then I added some eyeballs, plastic snakes, slime, crazy teeth (a family favorite on long car rides), bouncy balls and even some fake dog poop.
They LOVED it and have since had some friends over and were excited to let them grab some goodies from the Halloween bucket too.
