Happy Halloween! Okay, I know it’s not until tomorrow, but the Butterflies and I celebrated today. During the morning, we made pumpkin bread for the party. Our bakers continue to get better and better in their baking skills. They remember to wash their hands, to even off the measuring cups and teaspoons, and to lick the bowl when there is no egg in it!
At the art table, a few kids were working on cutting skills by cutting out a very windy ghost! They worked very hard and were very persistent in their endeavor. Not too many kids wanted to scoop out the guts of the pumpkin in the water table – even after Stefan scraped it first.
Most of the kids were outside, costumes and all, driving trucks into the wood, ground or anything else they could find. Easton was finding the last of the tomatoes on the vines!
In dramatic play, a wonderful mixture of seeds and nuts were cooking on the stove waiting for someone to come in for lunch.
But, the best part was the party in the gym! We sang our favorite Halloween songs, ate a donut without touching it, bobbed for apples, fed the ghost, and wrapped up like mummies! Everyone seemed to have a good time and I know that the witches brew was even tastier this year than last!
My thanks to Stefan and Marya (aka Mary Poppins) for all of their help today. Have a happy Halloween!
