Daphne and Scooby
Yesterday was AJ's Halloween Party at preschool, and I WAS IN CHARGE - AAAHHHH!
We made these treat bags,
We played treats and guts
The kids had to use only their hands to dig around in "creepy stuff" to find their prizes. We had monster hair (yarn), witch's fingers (carrots), eyeballs (peeled grapes), monster gut (spaghetti), witches' tongues (quartered bananas), and monster teeth (popcorn kernels). This is a perfect age for this game, because they TOTALLY believed it. It was so funny watching them.
Then we played Halloween Memory, and each kid got a set of cards to take home,
Did a mummy wrap,
Played "Pin the Nose On the Pumpkin"
Competed in a candy corn toss,
Made(and of course ate) spiderweb cookies. These are super easy and perfect for young kids. Just frost a sugar cookie with colored frosting. Then put a dot of black gel frosting in the center and a few rings, getting bigger each time.
Then drag a toothpick from the center toward the outside.
Voila - a spiderweb!
And washed them down with some Witches Brew (green Hawaiian Punch with dry ice). AJ was convinced she would turn into a witch if she drank it. She lost a substantial amount of sleep the night before (and therefore so did I) stressing about having to drink the witch potion. But as always with kids (and,ahem,me) dry ice was a hit.
Phew! (Who am I kidding - I loved every second!)
AJ and Ms. Becki
We spent the afternoon today carving pumpkins:
Scooby (to match AJ's costume, of course) and a "scary face", per AJ's request.
We're making these cute mummy dogs for dinner
and then we're off to the trunk-or-treat. Hope everyone has a splendid and safe Halloween!
