Lots and LOTS of sugary candy … that’s how we roll here at the BL! (then we send them home!)
Two more days until Halloween! We invited the kiddos to wear their costumes …. we had Anna, a Fancy Pirate and a Sheriff. We read two books: Spooky Wheels on the Bus by J. Elizabeth Mills (with flannel board activity), Click, Clack, Boo! by Doreen Cronin (super cute!); sang a song: Horns, Fangs, Knees and Claws (twice!), played a game: Guess the Ghost Game; and a made a spooky ghost craft. AND everyone left with a treat! Phew! Happy Halloween to all!

Halloween = candy! We blew-up Peeps in the microwave, and watched the beautiful colors of Gobstoppers mix together. We also did a hands-on experiment for the kiddos: which candy would sink or float. We started of with a variety of chocolate candy bars … and they ALL sank to the bottom. This was not the result that I expected. So, we decided to try some sugary candy: Skittles, Starburst, and Lifesaver jellies. These all sank to the bottom as well! Last up … a Peep? What would happen. Well, it floated! Why? Well, as the kiddos stated, a marshmallow is filled with air and therefore will float, just like a pool float. Lots of fun …
EEK! Lot’s of scary folding happened today at Horrorgami. Miss Susan provided a snack of brains, worms and a bit of blood to wash it down. Nothing like Halloween to bring the kid out in you! Oh, and we can’t forget the Scary Face Contest! Hmmmm? Who is the winner????
