I’ve never really bothered with Halloween as a holiday but with children of the right sort of age, there’s so much fun to be had. Today we had a whole bunch of crafts lined up plus a party for the girls to go to and then filled with imagination MG and DG played a vampire game until bedtime
Firstly the girls decorated wooden cut out pumpkins that my mum got from a recent local craft fair, made by Artcuts.
Next we did two of the projects in this months’ Tiny Tigs craft pack (I keep meaning to review these as they are great fun. I keep most of the projects as our ‘emergency back up’ for rainy days but of course we had to do the Halloween ones today!)
The girls then had a Halloween party to go to, for two friends whose birthdays we missed in the summer so we took birthday presents too. DG wanted to be a ballet witch but MG decided she didn’t want to dress up.
While we were at the party (MG was in a clingy mood, so I had to stay with her – DG was quite happy joining in from the start!), Mr Chaos carved the pumpkins from the girls’ designs. We would have done it all together but the day ran away with us so we left Daddy to it!
MG absolutely loved the vampire teeth she got at the party (DG found a straw to use as she missed out getting the fake teeth and wanted them too!) and the time before bedtime consisted of her bossing “baby vampire” into her coffin (“coffins are where vampires sleep”) and biting her parents until we got vampire blood and turned from Breathers to Vampires (fortunately for us, kisses were used instead of bites!) Young Dracula is one of my secret TV loves (shhh, don’t tell anyone!) so their vampire mythology mainly comes from that program
