Halloween Fun!

A cute Halloween witch using fabric scraps again!
Mini pumpkins, Indian corn, and gourds in our discovery table.
Itsy Bitsy Spider from mailbox magazine so cute the spider moves up and down the straw like it is a
water spout. 
I have been wanting to do this for a couple years now and I finally did it and the children really enjoyed it.
I simply poked holes(using a pen) in the these pumpkins so the Mr. Potato head pieces would fit in them and let the children make faces on the pumpkins. 
Classic Halloween finger play "5 Little pumpkins sitting on the gate. The children count the pumpkins and glue them on the gate while reciting the finger play with the teacher. The children can choose however many pumpkins they want to put on the gate.
Boo! We made these cute ghost with the children's foot prints white paint and black construction paper. We also added little black mouths and hung them in the classroom window with clear thread so it looked like they were floating there.
Those little ghost feet inspired these too cute ghost shirts. One of my amazing teaching assistants is awesome at doing the children's hand prints and footprints and I saw how well the footprints turned out on paper I was inspired to try it with fabric paint on a black shirt for each of the children.It worked out really well and the children loved the shirts too! I remembered the idea from when my oldest (now 18) made Halloween shirts very similar to this to wear for their field trip to the pumpkin patch.

Pretty glitter pumpkins. Just let the kids go crazy with glue a paint brush and glitter! 
Saving the best for last. One of the amazing moms in my class carved 20 of these adorable jack o lanterns for our Halloween snack! And filled them with cut up strawberries and grapes!
