Well hello there strangers! I've been meaning to write this post forever it seems but two bouts of the flu have left some minor setbacks in our house. Now that its a long weekend and we're both feeling better I want to share what we were up to last month! So sit back, grab a cuppa and bookmark this page for next years inspiration!
Halloween Sensory Box
This sensory tub is K's favorite so far. He loves it so much in fact that I've decided to keep it around for one more month! To make your own fill a large plastic tub with black beans and corn kernals. Add small foam pumpkins, plastic Halloween finger puppets, bats, spiders and glow in the dark skeletons. Then add a few cups for digging and you'll be set for hours of play with your tot/ preschooler. I found all my items at Walmart and the dollar stores and spent less than $10. Best money spent!
Halloween Bento Box Lunch
Having a child with food allergies can be tough during the holidays but a healthy Halloween lunch doesn't need to be a headache. K loved his and gobbled it up AND his teachers at daycare ranted and raved for over a week about how cool it was. To make your own draw a face on an orange with marker (Jack o lantern), ghost poop (marshmallows), mummy pizza (gluten free English muffin with gluten free salami, tomato sauce, mozzarella and black olives), carrots (spider legs), roasted pumpkin seeds and monster eyes (hard boiled egg with halved cherry tomatoes for eyes), yoghurt with Halloween sprinkles. YUM!!!!
A sweet inexpensive and gluten free treat for Halloween! Get the recipe HERE.
We had a great time celebrating our first official Halloween. What were you up to?
