My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

Ghosts and Goblins Everywhere... Witches flying through the air...

It's Halloween!!  Or... almost! :)

I had preschool playdate at my house this week and we did some fun Ghost activities.
We read a GREAT book- called Ghosts in the House by Kazuno Kohara- very cute story about a little girl who moves into a house full of ghosts... but she has a surprise for them!

First we made marshmallow ghosts-  yummy!  We used black construction paper and each child traced an outline of a ghost with glue.  Then they placed the marshmallows on the glue.  After they finished their outlines they decided to add eyes and a mouth!  Turned out very cute!

The other ghost activity we did was creating "ghost" suckers... Scarlett and I do these every year because they are just so easy and fun!

Lily wanted to help with this one for sure!  However she didn't understand why we put a paper towel over the sucker... what is the point when suckers are for eating?!?   LOL

Have a ghostly day!!

Looks like such a fun playdate! The lollys are always a hit! I really love that book too - ghosts, but not scary. Happy Halloween!
