Black cats are a favorite Halloween icon; ranking number two behind pumpkins in popularity. Stroking a soft animal helps calm people down and cats can be very good friends that way.
Give your children something to purr about with a black cat party. Serve fish tacos and play games while listening to "What's New Pussycat?" and "Stray Cat Strut." I like to serve retro candy to introduce my children to the favorites that their parents and grandparents loved.
For party favors, make these black cat mini chalkboards. They are quick and easy and all kinds of cute!
