Halloween Playlist

  
Next up – The Playlist!

It’s taken me a while, vetting the songs, as some of them are a bit too explicit, to find a playlist which is suitable for children’s ears, but I’ve finally settled on this…..I think….

I’m not entirely convinced there wont be extras added in by the time Saturday comes, but so far I’m confident there are enough songs on here to keep everyone happy. A particular favourite of mine and the kids is Boris the Spider – it seems to amuse them and they love singing along!!! Lol!

Check it out on Spotify:

Halloween Special -Games 

 it’s drawing near….I’m getting more and more excited by the day….We are hosting a small Halloween party on Saturday and I’m trying to think of games we can play to keep the kids (and adults) entertained. 

1. Try to get the worm out the jelly using only your mouth 

Not exactly the most catchy of names I know, but I don’t know what else to call it?! Blind Jelly Surprise? Our first experiment was to try to get the worm out of a jelly using only our mouth – this proved far too easy for Bear, who’s 6, so we thought we would try it blindfolded and on Boo, 4!!! For adults and children alike….this is how little Boo got on…friends reading this: your turn on Saturday!!! Thinking about making it a team relay! 

 
After thinking about this and realizing that trying to find 20+ blindfolds might prove tricky, and that everyone might really hurt their noses if they go in aggressively, I think maybe we will just do it in the dark! 

2. Torchlit Treasure Hunt

Hide lots of little sweets out in the garden (I’ll be using gold/silver chocolate coins as they should be easier to find) and get the kids go try to find them using torches. Great for indoors too with all the lights off if the weather is rubbish. Remember to keep some coins aside for the little ones who might find this more tricky. I plan to tell them that once they’ve found 5 that’s their lot so everyone gets their fair share.

We tried this indoors tonight and the kids loved it!

3. Pin the Wart on the Witch

Speaks for itself really just an adapted version of the tail on the Donkey.

4. Musical Statues – Halloween style

Of course I have a Halloween playlist for this, which I’ll post later. Cut out or make small pictures of witches hats/ghosts/cats whatever takes your fancy, and put them on the floor. This is just like musical statues, but when the music stops, the kids (and adults) have to stand on a picture, obviously take a picture away every time someone is out. A small treat for the losers and a big treat for the winner!

That should keep us busy for a bit….

Lollipop Spiders – Halloween special!

Halloween – one of my favourite times of the year! It’s at this time of year I wish I lived in America – they do Halloween so well!

I find myself constantly on Pinterest looking up crafty bits for the kids to do, home made costumes, make up, decorations, food ideas, basically everything!!!

Today we tried lollipop spiders. So simple, takes about 3 seconds for grown ups – 3 hours for children and their tiny fingers. No, seriously, it’s simple, even the kids can do it.

All you need is lollipops, black pipe cleaners and stick on googly eyes (and scissors and glue)  

      

Basically all you do is:

  • Take 2 pipe cleaners and cut them in half
  • wrap 2 of them together round your lollipop stick
  • Spread out the ends and turn them over at the very ends so they stand up
  • Stick on a couple of googly eyes

Hey presto!
