So yesterday I gave you the format of how we run our holiday parties. I HIGHLY recommend doing something structured if your past parties have been as fabulously disastrous as mine were.
Onto the fun stuff – what the heck are we doing at our Halloween party this year??
In past years we have done the whole ewwy gooey messy thing; red jello for blood, spaghetti for worms, pistachio pudding for boogers – yep the whole sha-bang. Obviously the kids die in excitement over this. I’m not going to lie to you. It’s a big ol’ messy pain in the butt. Except the kids really do love it. And it’s freaken hilarious as well. Disclaimer – if you do this you will end up with some amazing combination of pudding/jello/noodles in your hair. You will. There’s no way around it.
Last year we took a break from this and did slime instead. Little hint – not much cleaner or easier fyi. So I think we are going to bring back the gooeyness this year. Wish me luck.
Treats or Snacks
Last year we made spider oreo cookies:
So I think we will either do those or one of these two stinkin cuuuute ideas I found on pinterest:
from nap time crafts
Arts and Crafts
I kinda love crafts involving painting their hands or feet. Haha – that maybe makes me sound weird. But I think it’s good for exposure to new sensory experiences and they turn out super cute!
Last year we did ghost footprints.
And we have also done spider handprints:
I love these ideas from pinterest:
from Deep Space Sparkle
Bahhhh too many cute ideas how do I choose?!?
Games and Activities
We will be playing October bingo. My kids love a good bingo game and it’s an easy enough game to include all students.
and we will also be playing our Halloween Language Games – Real v. Make Believe and Fact v. Fiction. My guys have been loving these games. They can’t stop giggling at the Make-Believe flashcards!
What are you doing for your Halloween Parties this year?
