We had a busy couple of weeks leading up to Halloween, here are pictures of all the fun we had!
We started off Halloween with a spooky story time at the library. They had lots of fun activities and candy for the kids and also stories of course!
We got our pumpkin carving on. Charlotte poked the holes for one eye on the cat and was done, she decided it would be more fun to play in the dirt. Lexi dug right in and proceeded to eat as much raw pumpkin as she could, then when she was done with that she joined Charlotte in the dirt. Both girls were hosed off before going back inside.
We went to Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens. Charlotte LOVED it! She had her face painted, she got to ride her first roller coaster, she watched a few great shows, one she was extremely excited about was Monster Stomp Revamped, she even got to meet some cast members after the show. Lexi on the other hand was not as thrilled, it was very very loud. Word to the wise, get out of Howl-O-Scream before 6PM if you are a scaredy cat like me!
Charlotte's dance class got to wear their Halloween costumes to dance in.
We went to ZooBoo, which is pretty much trick or treating at the zoo. It was very crowded, especially traffic/parking. The girls had a good time but it might be more fun for them when they get a bit older.
We had a bunch of fun decorating the playroom for Halloween. My favorite being the humongous spiderweb made out of yarn. The spiders kept falling off though. We made pumpkins and ghosts and bats and spiders. I drew a whole haunted scene on the chalkboard with a cemetery and haunted house and pumpkin patch with scarecrows and witches. It's pretty awesome, in my opinion.
Last but not least! Halloween day! Woo!! I can't wait to do it all over again next year!
Now after a long break in our schooling units, we are starting this next week with Forest Week!
