Wow.... what a fabby Halloween we had! I am still worn out from being on my feet all day and the house really needed a good tidy up after.... but worth it!
We decorated the house and the front garden. lots of blow up bats, candles, pumpkins, cobwebs and spooky signs!
Then we enjoyed making some spooky sticker pictures!
We made some spooky Ghost cards and pictures using baby footprints! I forgot to take a picture of the finished items but they looked really cute once we drew little faces on them all. The little ones did enjoy having their feet painted as well!
Then some painted Halloween pictures by using cookie cutters as stamps! and adding some hand and fingers prints for good measure. They turned out really nicely! Lots of lovely sensory fun too, squishing all that paint between their fingers!
Then it was time for cookies! We made Orange and Cinnamon cookies all cut in to the shapes of ghosts, witches, pumpkins and more!!
I made jelly filled carved oranges for a yummy treat! I saw this on the Internet somewhere but can not find them now.... you just spoon out the orange flesh, carve a little face and fill with mashed up jelly!
Then after school we all walked to the village pub to join in with the Halloween party they had organised!! So much fun! Yummy food and pass the parcel!

Then some trick or treating around the village. We started as a group of 13 children and adults but it was a bit too manic so several of us split off in to smaller groups!
Then home to rest and enjoy the Jelly oranges! My boys decided it was best to use Halloween straws to suck out the jelly! What a day! And for the first time we were not cold while Trick or Treating as the weather is still unusually mild for this time of year.
