Our Halloween-themed programs have been a spooktacular success
The month is whirling by but our Halloween-themed programs have been wonderful fun. In our Monster Mayhem program, we did eveything but theMonster Mash- be it games, crafts or stories, anything was fair game in our zeal to groan the night away.
Everyone loved holding up their gruesome hands (which were decorated through a related craft) and shouting GRRR!
Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Red Riding Hood, who walked through the forest to visit her sick grandmother.
While she was walking, she met the Big Bad Wolf, who tricked her and raced to Grandmother's house and ate her up in one bite!
When Red Riding Hood arrived, she noticed something different about her grandmother:
"Oh Grandmother, what big eyes you have!", said Red Riding Hood.
"All the better to see you with, my dear," said the Big Bad Wolf.
"Oh Grandmother, what big ears you have!", said Red Riding Hood.
It's Halloween-themed programs all month long in the Children's Room!
