FIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR KIDS SAFE THIS HALLOWEEN

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
CHECK OUT THESE 5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR KIDS SAFE ON THIS HALLOWEEN

 HALLOWEEN DAY CAN BE A LOT OF FUN FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY IF WE TAKE DRASTIC MEASURES TO KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE.  I HAVE INCLUDED 5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR KID OR KIDS SAFE THIS TRICK OR TREAT NIGHT.
  1. INSTEAD OF ALLOWING YOUR KIDS TO GO TRICK OR TREATING AT NIGHT, YOU CAN FIND THE LOCAL FALL FESTIVALS WHICH ARE SO MUCH MORE FUN BECAUSE NOT ONLY DO THE KIDS GET CANDY, THEY GET TO ENJOY ALL OF THE ACTIVITIES AT THE FESTIVAL.
  2. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR KIDS TO LOCAL CHURCHES.  A LOT OF CHURCHES ARE HAVING CANDY FOR KIDS AT CHURCHES NOW A DAYS.
  3. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR KIDS AROUND TO LOCAL STORES WITH THEIR COSTUMES ON WITH THEIR TREAT BAGS TO BE FILLED WITH GOODIES!
  4. IF YOU'RE GOING TO ALLOW YOUR TEENAGER TO GO TRICK OR TREATING, DON'T ALLOW THEM TO GO ALONE. GROUPS ARE SAFER AND FUN AS WELL.
  5. LASTLY, IT'S ALWAYS A GREAT IDEA TO WAIT UNTIL YOUR KIDS GET HOME TO ALLOW THEM TO EAT THEIR CANDY, AND YOU  WILL BE ABLE TO CONTROL WHAT THEY EAT AS WELL AS HOW MUCH.  HERE'S A TIP.  INSTEAD OF LETTING KIDS EAT AS MUCH CANDY AS THEY CAN ON HALLOWEEN, COLLECT THE CANDY AND USE IT AS AN INCENTIVE.
I WANT TO WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY AND SAFE HALLOWEEN DAY!

THE FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS A HALLOWEEN TEACHABLE SONG FOR YOUNGSTERS



I like teaching my children this finger play because children can learn a lot of skills from it PLUS, they have fun while learning
  1. You can teach them to count to five
  2. You can teach them the color orange
  3. You can teach them about different faces and what each one means
  4. They can learn how to make  pumpkins. Here are some ways to make them. I've seen people use pumpkin cutters to cut out pumpkin cookies or brownies. I've seen people cut them out from craft paper.  I've seen people use play dough to make them, and those are just a few.
  5. Depending on how you want to make them, children can learn how to cut, and glue. (me personally, I love art period because it allows you to be creative and it gets my mind off everything around  me.)
  6. You can also teach a child the life cycle of a pumpkin. In fact, you could use a whole week to learn about pumpkins and make it fun and exciting. 
So, to add to your pumpkin lesson, I have shared with you this fun, fun, song and finger play called the "Five Little Pumpkins Sitting On A Gate"

FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS SITTING ON A GATE. 
THE FIRST ONE SAID, OH MY, IT'S GETTINGLATE!
THE SECOND ONE SAID, THERE ARE WITCHES IN THE AIR!
THE THIRD ONE SAID, WE DON'T CARE!
THE FOURTH ONE SAID, LET'S RUN, LET'S RUN!
THE FIFTH ONE SAID, IT'S HALLOWEEN FUN!
WOOOOO! WENT THE WIND,
AND OUT WENT THE LIGHTS!, THE FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS
RAN FAST OUT OF SIGHT!


Can you think of more fun lessons using pumpkins? I would love to hear of them.
Have fun with your little ones!

Several fun and inexpensive summer activities for the family to enjoy



There's nothing better than a little family time on the home front.  Here are some classics you'll want to enjoy before the summer ends. 
  1. Camp in the backyard and make Smores . To make it extra special, make Smores with your favorite candy bar. I like mine with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
  2. Have a water balloon fight!  Why not make a parents vs. kids and show the youngsters how it's done.  I think older kids will definitely get a kick out of this activity! 
  3. Make a tent out of cardboard boxes and sheets! 
  4. Have a picnic on the beach , and bring sand molds, and buckets for the youngsters to play with and watch them fill and dump the buckets, and make sand moles, and don't forget to bring the camera for lasting memories.
