On Friday we celebrated Halloween with a series of games and activities. In the morning we had a photo session where the kids showed off their impressive outfits.
Although traditionally Halloween costumes were supposed to scary, over time it has evolved to be synonymous with fancy dress or cosplay. The kids also posed with cutouts of Elsa from Frozen, Captain America from the MCU, popular Chinese folk legend anti-hero Nezha and Peppa Pig’s parents!
We then played Spooky Musical Chairs. The kids skipped round a circle of chairs to music and rushed to sit down on a chair when the music stops. However, after each round one chair mysteriously vanished until eventually there was only one chair left! The music was all Halloween themed of course and included songs like The Monster Mash, Five little Monsters and Baby Shark Halloween. It was a high-octane game which the kids loved.
We then played pin the nose on the witch. Tying in with our recent class theme of body parts, the kids were tasked with sticking the nose on the witch. The twist was that the kids were blindfolded with a spooky Halloween monkey blindfold! With some help from the rest of the class, the kids did a fine job helping the witch get reattached with her missing appendage!
