An important part of any garbage party is encouraging recycling, and one way to recycle is with a compost pile. This "compost" cake recipe is fun to make... and eat!
Another "gross" food that's really fun, kid-friendly, and easy-to-make are these "squid dogs," made with spaghetti and hot dogs. Easy -- insert dry spaghetti and boil -- and so fun!
And here is, by far, the most elaborate trash can cake that you will see this week. Look at the amazing details -- "flies," egg shells, banana peels, coffee grounds, fish bones, (half-eaten) doughnuts... Amazing detail! The kids would just love it!

A roaring, monstrous machine is coming to your house, and with its giant, mechanical arms, it will eat... your garbage! Trash trucks are pretty exciting for kids! Just be sure the trash truck cake doesn't eat up all the goodies at your garbage party!

Lots of trash parties include scavenger hunts, with inexpensive toys and treats hidden under scrunched up newspaper in the yard. But to do it right, you'll need these claw grabbers -- no hands allowed! -- a super fun favor for any garbage party (check dollar and big box stores).

Getting dirty can be fun... especially when the "dirt" is super slimey (and actually clean)! Here's a recipe to make your own "slime!"
