Ideas for Friday the 13th Family Fun

“It’s Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday. Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend.” Um, sorry, when I think of Friday and Scary, I think of Rebecca Black’s song. Seriously though, if you want family fun ideas for Friday the 13th tonight, here’s some I’ve done with  my kiddos in the past.


Appetizers: Deviled Eggs & Witches Fingers (mini pigs in a blanket with a squirt of Ketchup on the tip)

Main Meal: Spooky Sandwiches (used a ghost cookie cutter from Halloween)

Dessert: I-Scream Sundaes with Monster Mash on top (used M&M’s, Peanuts, and Reeces Pieces)


Gotta suggest my childhood fave’s first: Goonies, Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Bettlejuice, & Addams Family. Monster House and The Spiderwick Chronicles is another good one from recent years, and of course can’t leave out Harry Potter. If you’d rather play a game, how about Clue Jr.

Happy Friday the 13th all, may bad luck NOT be with you as it is with me (left school early with sick kid, but at least it gave me time to blog today).  And if you haven’t already, You Tube the Friday song–classic! I enjoyed Glee’s version of it this past week much better.
