So is it raining tonight in your neck of the woods, too? We’re going to hit the streets early, getting as much trick-or-treating in before it starts to pour. To amuse the kids, try hiding candy around the house for the kids to find… like a Halloween version of an Easter egg hunt. Here are a few jokes you can tell ’em, too…
- Why couldn’t the ghost see its mom and dad? Because they were trans-parents!
- What is a vampires favorite holiday? Fangsgiving.
- What do you call a witch in the desert? A sandwitch.
- Why do ghosts like to ride in elevators? It raises their spirits.
- What do you get when you drop a pumpkin? Squash.
- Why do mummies have trouble making friends? They’re too wrapped up in themselves.
- What do birds give out on Halloween? Tweets.
- What’s it like to be kissed by a vampire? It’s a pain in the neck.
But you know all that will only entertain them for about 30 seconds, right? 😉 You have to get more CREATIVE! Go grab some items you already own, add some ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda and POOF! Your kids will be impressed by your wizardry!
Here are some fantastically spooky ideas I found around the blogosphere:
Self-Inflating Ghost Balloons
MaryAnne, from Mama Smiles, did this science-based Halloween activity with her kids,
with items you probably have in your kitchen right now!
Erupting Candy Corn Foam Dough
Allison, from Learn Play Imagine, made candy corn foam dough with her kids.
Add a surprise ingredient, and this activity ‘erupts’ with fun!
Aren’t those ideas so clever?! My girls are about to make Witches’ Brew… just pour 3 teaspoons of ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda, a ¼ cup of vinegar and a few drops of green food coloring into a bowl (or Halloween cauldron, if you have one), then watch as it bubbles and churns. (Just don’t drink it, yuck!) I’ll share a photo when we’re done.
So… are you feeling lucky this Halloween?
