This is what we did before lunch o Friday. The night before I made a suspicious purple mixture and I threw some bugs, reptiles, bats and skeletons in it for some messy fun. The children were really happy to find out that there was a texture to it. They measured, poured, mixed. While the other were busy making a mess B. found a skeleton and since she is the signer of the group she sang the skeleton dance for about 10 minutes before starting to get messy too.
R. who is not even 2 years old worked at it longer than everybody else. He was pouring it on himself and was covered with purple stuff loll. Everybody loved this activity but he loved it a little more.
Unfortunately after the messy play I was too busy to take the photos I would have liked to take. We painted a mini pumpkin, had a lantern walk(lantern that we made) in the dark, had a dance party, some treats. For snack we decorated our own cupcake with treats and had children fingers(home-made gold fish crackers shaped as fingers),blood cocktail(V-8) and witch potion(apple juice).
We had a monkey, a witch, a fairy, a pixie and a huge ninja (me)that had trouble going through doorways. It was a very fun day!
