Halloween Carnival Fun

Posted: October 24, 2008 in Holidays, Playgroup

Our playgroup hosted a HUGE Halloween carnival today, 10/23/08, and we had a blast! D and I had been planning out every detail for almost 2 months now and it went off so smoothly we couldn’t have asked for anything better. All the moms participated by helping set up, clean up and with donations. I was able to talk to the mall and got goodie bags from the Kidgits Club and Build a Bear. We ordered pizza for everyone and had 7 tables set up with stuff and then extra games and such all over the place. All the kids got prizes for EVERYTHING they did.

We had face painting, costume photos with hay and a scarecrow and pumpkins then placed on decorated frames, cupcake and cookie decorating, goodie bag decorating, coloring pages and ghost making, mini pumpkin painting, potato sack races, ring toss, bean bag toss, monster mash music game, mummy wrap (this is toilet papering each other), a costume contest, and trick or treating.

The kids had a BLAST and got to run around and gather goodies at every turn. The parents got to enjoy watching their child’s and their friends’ child’s faces light up with excitement with each new thing.

    Our boy is sooo lucky. The kids look like they had a great time. I am so sorry I had to miss it by having to travel. You are such a wonderful Mom to our son. The kids in the play group are also very lucky to have you so dedicated to coming up with activities and working with Ms. D and the other moms to make sure the kids get great play time and important interaction time. All the events look great. Z dressed up as a toilet paper mummy is adorable. I bet he loved it. The blog is great. You are doing a fantastic job on it. Love you and see you soon. Give the storm trooper a kiss for me.
