After a week or more of anxiously waiting, Halloween finally arrived! We had a fun and exciting week with spooky themes and our hocus pocus Halloween parade and party! Everyone showed up in their best costumes, we had a little Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc. movie, Minnie mouse, Cinderella, Frankenstein, Jessy from Toy Story, Batman & Robin and a little cute monster.
Kids loved to hand out candy to their friends, and had a blast doing their milk jug monster treat container in exploration time. We did lots of cool stuff in our exploration time like our monsters bowling, witch’s hat ring toss and a Halloween sensory play with jello and creepy plastic toys like spiders and worms.
Tiny Turtles had so much fun during their creativity time with Miss Cristy, were they made a paper plate cat, which they painted and pasted the whiskers, eyes, ears and tail. Children also did a “lantern” with a jar, they pasted yellow and orange mache papers.
In physical development kids played with pumpkins and jack o lanterns, singing along “jack o lantern” & “5 little pumpkins”. Jumping and getting inside and outside the parachute makes them laugh and giggle, they really like it! Every time we put super simple Halloween songs turtles pay a lot of attention, they love to see cartoons singing and dancing various Halloween songs.
We hope you had a fun Halloween night, and that our turtles get lots of candy when they go out trick or treating!
