Halloween Party

Long time, no post.  Life is busy this time of year, and I cherish every moment that I have with my son.  So, needless to say the blog posts may lag from time to time.  I did want to share our Halloween party we had with some of our preschool friends this past Saturday.  I was running low on time to make up my own printables, so I used this printable party set from Amanda Parker at Shinding Parties to Go. 
It was a really fun set of printables.  The photo props were a hit, and I used them in my classroom on Halloween to get some silly pictures of my first graders after reading Go Away Big Green Monster.  

Here are the party details.  When the kids arrived, they played with ghosts (white balloons with ghost eyes drawn on them).  It's amazing how entertaining balloons are to 4 year olds.  After the children arrived, we went on a pumpkin hunt.  We had his a couple dozen mini pumpkins in the yard.  So the kids found them and we rehid them a few times.  Next, we played tossed the spider in the pumpkin.  This was just throwing plastic spiders into pumpkins.  

Instead of carving pumpkins, we decorating and painted them with various art supplies.  Here are some of the girls creating their masterpieces.

For snacks I made spider crackers with peanut butter, crackers and pretzel legs, we had chocolate milk with bat straws, and decorated a cookie.

While they were eating we took our silly fun!

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween.  I know we did, and now the holiday madness begins.
My superman!
