    What are some things you have done for Halloween/Fall Festival Parties? This is my first year and I would like to plan something fun for the kiddos!

    I carve a pumpkin. We discuss shapes while I'm cutting the eyes (triangles), circle (nose), and rectangle with little rectangles for the mouth. I put a battery operated candle in it during naptime, kids love it! We keep the seeds to plant in the Spring when we talk about plants.

    I actually had my kiddos dig out the seeds from those little pie pumpkins and count the seeds. They loved it! Then they painted the seeds and made mosaics out of them. Very messy, but very fun.

    My parents basically plan the parties. I've had everything from cauldrons with dry ice flowing from it to kids being wrapped in toilet paper as mummies.

    Just make sure you limit the amount of extra people you have and request that parents dont' bring younger siblings. Last year I had a room FULL of parents, extra kids, and my kids. I didn't enjoy it at all especially when a negligent parent let her kids open my desk drawers and run around the run carelessly.
