In the spirit of my favorite holiday, I thought it would be fun to share how the littles and I spent our day celebrating. Although, there aren’t any real guides or advice in this article, I did include instructions for our super easy and healthy Halloween snack of the day.
Our Halloween began wet and gloomy outside, which fit great with the spooky theme, but limited us to indoor activities. One of our favorite things to do around here is to play dress-up, so it was no surprise that we had changed out of pajamas at 8:30 A.M. this morning and directly into costumes. Of course, there would come to be many more costumes changes throughout the day.
Eventually, we went to pick up another one of our playmates from her preschool to join us back at the house. I’ve been working with these three little ones for over a year now, and I have lovingly nicknamed them, “The Three Musketeers”. When these kids get together, one does something and the rest have to give it a try no matter what it is. Like the saying goes, all for one and one for all.
Since it was still raining outside when we got home, we decided to baked some Halloween cookies. Everyone got to take a turn mixing in our ingredients, and decorating the cookies with sprinkles.
By then it was lunch time, and I decided to put together one of the easiest and healthiest Halloween desserts for the kids after they were done with their meal. Make your own “Banana Ghosts” or “Boo Bananas” by simply cutting a banana in half and pressing three (3) chocolate chips into the top end of the banana to create the eyes and mouth. It’s that simple and the kids loved them!
While we waited for our cookies to finish baking, we put on our own Halloween costume parade through the house. Again, with multiple costumes making their appearances. I think we had about eight wardrobe changes today. The day was full of robots, princesses, dragons, fairies, witches, pirates, and playing ring-around-the-rosie so many times I lost count. We even had our own monster mash dance party while child-friendly Halloween music played in the background.
After all the marching, singing, and dancing, it was time for a much needed rest. While the kids took their nap, I set up one last treat for them to wake up to — their finished Halloween cookies! I made sure to bake a few extra cookies without sprinkles, so I could write on them with icing. They came out looking great, and tasting even better!
I hope everyone enjoyed your Halloween as much we did! Did you do something special celebrate this Halloween or do you have a festive holiday tradition you do every year? Leave a comment below to share.
