Everyone brought blankets and flashlights. We pulled all the chairs away from tables and encouraged parents and kids to set up their tents in any way they wanted. Books were everywhere (including a fine selection of spooky stories for every age). We played the movie soundtrack from Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone softly over the P.A. which lent a magical air to the proceedings.
"walking s'mores" - we learned that 2 boxes of honey grahams, plus 2 # of chocolate chips, plus one bag of mini-marshallows mixed together and served in dixie cups perfectly treats 50 hungry kiddos.
