Happy Halloween! Do you have big plans for the day?
Once school lets out we’ll be piling into our costumes. Miss 1st decided to be a ballerina this year, dressed all in pink. Miss Preschool is dressing up as a cat. She won’t be your typical black Halloween cat, she wants to be a white cat. That meant I had to hunker down with my sewing machine and sew up her costume. It’s done and she’s going to be quite a cute cat!
We’ll take our pictures while it’s still daylight, then head over to Great Grandma’s assisted living. The residents are always so generous and love seeing all the kids on Halloween. If you have an assisted living home in your town, check and see if they welcome trick-or-treaters. I find it’s such a valuable time for both the residents and the kids. Plus, it’s a perfect place to go if don’t live in a good neighborhood for trick-or-treating.
Afterward, we’ll head home, eat mummy dogs for dinner, and head out into the neighborhood. Should be fun!
Are you heading out trick-or-treating tonight? JDaniel4’s Mom has put together a helpful list of Halloween safety rules. It’s always a good idea to go over these with your kids before going out.
If you’re looking for some last minute Halloween crafts, Learn Play imagine has a great list. Also you can check out my Halloween Fun for Kids Pinterest board or search my blog under Halloween.
Have a fun Halloween!
