Many children came dressed up today for our Halloween activities, this shows that they have an understanding of what the community expectations are for this celebration and the “treats” that will follow. When asked what it means the children replied “Candy”, “You knock on the door and say trick or treat”, “Bats” and “Pumpkins”.
In the morning we began by making pumpkin heads by painting paper plates and then adding a face. Later in the afternoon the children made their own ghost banana. The children enjoyed this hands on experience, eagerly gathering around the table to dip their own banana in vanilla yoghurt and then adding sultanas for eyes. This activity gave the children the chance to make their own tasty treat for Halloween using healthy alternatives.
