H A double L O W double E N

Can you believe that it is the end of October?? Where is the fall going?? 

We are dedicating all of tomorrow afternoon to Halloween activities. Here are a couple of the things that we are going to do.

My coworker came up with this adorable activity and said I could share.  Click on the picture to download.

Candy Corn Relay Race

Designate a starting line and a finish line. Set out a bowl full of candy corn for each player at the starting line and an empty bowl at the finish line. The players must use a large spoon to scoop candy corn out of the full bowl and then carry it to the empty bowl and fill it. They cannot spill any candy corn or use their hands! If any candy corn falls off the spoon, they must immediately pick it up and bring it back to the starting line bowl and start over with that scoopful.


My kids are loving read alouds this year.  We read Geronimo Stilton every afternoon before we go home.  Here is the one we read in October.

Witches Brew
   Ingredients: popcorn kernels, pretzels, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, raisins, goldfish.
   Directions: Count out 10 of each of the following and add them to your bag; pretzels, marshmallows, chocolate chips, raisins, goldfish.  Count out 15 popcorn kernels and add those to your bag. Zip your bag closed and shake well.

Spider Hats
For one hat…
Cut eight stripes of black paper 1 ½inches by 9 inches. Cut one strip of black paper 2 inches by 22 inches. Cut 2 large black circle, 2 medium orange circle, and 2 small black circles.

Glue orange circle to edge of large black circle. Glue small black circle to edge of orange circle. Measure the 22 inch piece around child’s head, overlap and glue ends together. Glue the eyes to the hat band with black eyes touching. Fold the leg strips in half. Fold one end of each leg strip back 1 inch. Glue the straight end to the inside edge of the hat band. Fold and glue the remaining legs. You will have four legs on each side.
