Yes, Costco now has 5 aisles of Christmas décor, but it is still pumpkin season for at least a month! Do you have a pumpkin at home yet?
It’s October and while the ghosts and ghouls are out to play, we wanted to work on labeling emotions and socio-dramatic play with our kids by making spooky eye portraits. Using ping pong balls you get the illusion the pictures eyes are following you! Creeeepy! And, using props and costumes to take the photos is a great learning opportunity for our kids to act out different emotions and expressions. Enjoy!
On October 25th, CARD’s Fairport office got a spooky makeover… The Ghouls and Gobblins came over to our office for our Halloween party around 6, and trick or treated their way around the office! The office was spooked out with pumpkins, witches, ghosts, and even the occasion black cat (don’t worry, the mice were hiding!).
When the children all came in, they met a NFL referee, a penguin, and even Mini Mouse! Of course, our kiddo’s had the best costumes ever- including a tiger, the entire family from The Incredibles, and even a polar bear!
Halloween is around the corner! One of my favorite Halloween activities is practice trick-or-treat. This can be as simple or elaborate as you like. All you really need is a door, a bag and a treat, but it might be fun to incorporate dress-up clothes or have a Halloween dress rehearsal.
