The Showcase Features
Taken from last week’s posts
Halloween is the perfect time for messy play. There are so many opportunities for messy and yucky play time activities. Most kids love getting messy – even if it can be a bit disgusting. I just wish someone else would come and clear it up afterwards!
Jelly (as we call it in the UK) is such a great messy play activity for young tots as it is edible so it doesn’t matter if they put it in their mouths. This one is given a fun Halloween twist.
A fabulous sensory bin full of Halloween items. I love the Halloween colour scheme.
Homemade play dough is so much fun and the advantage is you can make it in Halloween colours.
You can even make you play dough glow in the dark. Lots of monsters here – but also some beautiful butterflies if you want a change from creepy things.
Pumpkins are great for messy play – perfect to use for rolling in the paint. There were lots of great pumpkin painting ideas which are particularly messy linked up last week too.
Although this isn’t labelled as a Halloween activity and the colours are slightly more pretty than you would expect – slime is a perfect Halloween activity. Such messy fun! This might be good for children who don’t like the scary side of Halloween.
Another slime activity – this time with halloween colours. Also check out the Fairy Potion from Life with Moore Babies - again not technically a Halloween activity – but the green version further down the post would be perfect as a witches’ potion.
This week on Here Come the Girls
We had a Yes day after reading the fabulous book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal for The Virtual book Club. My five year old was in charge of planning the day’s activities – what could go wrong?
We did lots of fun outdoor activities based on Autumn leaves. With some crafts and sensory play back at home. There is a pumpkin and leaves link up here too.
We made a cardboard dolls house to show off my dream master bedroom.
Don’t forget to join in the perfectly pumpkin contest and link up any pumpkin related crafts, recipes and activities.
