Here are some fun and interesting ideas from around the web:
If you’re looking for some fun Halloween activities and have some extra felt on-hand, check out these Halloween finger puppets , or these Frightening Faces. For more spook-tacular fun, check out these Spooky Bones, this Goopy Slime (with a variation here as well), and this Creepy Halloween Food. (I think I know a certain 4 year-old who will go crazy for those mummy cupcakes!)
While you’re in a creative mood, take a peek at this great DIY Stamp activity! Loved the open-ended nature of this one!
If you’re concerned by the common disregard for developmentally appropriate practice, you have to read this great piece by Alicia Bayer about the cost of Pushing Preschoolers.
I enjoyed this post by Teacher Tom about the Unintended Consequences of real art. Great samples and a wonderful art activity along with some really great points about art!
Halloween is on its way, and I’m curious. Are you planning on doing your Trick-or-Treating next Saturday or Sunday? I think we’ll have candy at our door both nights. (But don’t get any ideas about double-dipping now!)
Enjoy the weekend!
