Halloween Fun At The Library

0

For our family Boo Bash party we had fun reading Halloween stories. We had a human mummy race out of toilet paper. The first duo to use the whole roll won. We played 3 rounds.

We made spooky eyes out of Oreos, gummy life savers, chocolate chip morsels, butter cream icing, and gel for the veins.

The last thing we did was play Poke-A-Pumpkin.  I made a pumpkin out of orange solo cups and filled the cups with tricks or treats. I  glued the cups to a foam cork board and rubber banded an orange napkin over the cup . Then they got to poke their hand through the napkin and get a trick or a treat.
