The teachers all dress up too, as do many of the parents, like me and Jocelyn (wearing another of my homemade costumes, the Cat in the Hat).
Our teacher this year wants to keep holiday celebrations really low key, but several of us room parents put together a small party including a snack, a craft, and a story. I was in charge of snack. I turned mandarin orange cups into jack o lanterns by drawing on faces with a Sharpie and adding a stem from a green Post-It note. I also made chocolate dipped pretzels in a mold that looked like skeleton fingers.
The kids made a skeleton craft out of Q-tips and construction paper, and listened to the classic story "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie, Brown."
I also passed out glow-in-the-dark vampire teeth for the kids to take home. Always a win.
After school I had to finish up carving our pumpkins. Joseph picked out the designs and helped just a little. Then it was off to trick-or-treat with our neighborhood buddies.
Another great Halloween!
Now, as an aside, can you believe this is the 1000th post on the blog?! 1000!!!
How do we have that much to blog about?
Thanks for staying with us all this time :)
