Homeschool: Halloween Week

For school last week we did a Halloween Theme since it was the week before Halloween. We read lots of Halloween/Monster books. Here are a few of the books we read:

Room on the Broom
I Spy Halloween
Dora's Halloween
The Runaway Pumpkin

To go along with this story we made one the the silly monsters in the book and then we fed it some of our laundry to clean. This monster is actually still up. It has really gotten Miss Priss excited about doing the laundry.
We also did Monster Paint on bread. Basically you put food coloring in milk and then paint it on a piece of bread with a straw. You then toast the bread and the colors become really bright. It was a fun activity, but Libby said that the bread looked to grouse to eat :>
We watched Hocus Pocus. A favorite of mine at Halloween time.

We also had a Pumpkin day where we read  The Pumpkin Patch Parable
and then we carved a pumpkin with daddy

 Made Pumpkin Pudding and toasted the seeds.
I am not sure if I liked the Pumpkin Pudding I am still deciding.
We also watched It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown Cartoon. 
We did Jolly Rancher stained glass bats
Use a metal cookie cutter and place it in a cookies sheet and then fill with jolly ranchers. Bake for a few minutes in the oven just until the jolly ranchers begin to melt and then when they cool you can not only eat them but you can hang them as a decoration as well. I left mine in a little to long so they didn't turn out as I had hoped they would. We might try this again for Christmas or Valentines Day.
We also painted Halloween shirts for the kids to wear Halloween Night. These shirts matched the PJ pants they were getting as a surprise goody on Halloween morning. they just didn't know it when painting these.

Anyways we had a fun week of preschool as we celebrated Halloween and Monsters. I will post the rest of our Halloween fun later:>
