Halloween Party/Carnival

On Wednesday I went over to the school for Kelsie’s very first Pre K Halloween Party.  They had a very unique approach and did a very cute carnival with games and face painting.  It was held on the Pre K playground. 
The carnival included candy, a rice table {which I was running}, candy, rats in slime, candy, a bean bag ghost toss, candy, face painting, candy, a water balloon throw, and did I mention candy?  There was more candy than I think I have ever seen.  Each parent was ask to bring in candy.  I spent almost $25 on candy and one mom brought in 10lbs of the make your teeth rotten stuff!  So they had plenty of candy. 
The kids had a blast and it was such a fun experience.  After the carnival we went inside for the party portion complete with chicken tenders, apple sauce and cake with a little more candy! *smiles*
Kelsie has had a gallon zip lock bag full of it.  Needless to say it’s just about gone.  This is about the only time of year that I will let my kids eat candy until it makes them sick.  {this doesn’t make me a bad mom}  I do warn them that they will end up getting sick, so far they stop before they have gotten to that point.
I wanted to share some photos from the day…..

Today they are having their Halloween Parade.  The kindergartners and the pre k classes will get to wear their costumes to school and put on a little parade around the common area. I had to work on Kelsie’s costume and add a little extra velcro pieces since she is small.  We bought the smallest size they had but it was still a little big on her.  That’s ok, it’s cute none the less!
