This is my first year open so I'm having a fall celebration for my kids. What I didn't think about was what to do at this celebration. Only thing I know is that I encouraged the children to come dressed in costumes and I have several Halloween art projects set up. Could you guys give me some suggestions on what to do, times etc. Anything will help out. Thanks in advance!!

We generally play games. Pumpkin bowling - I set up tin cans and they can roll a smallish pumpkin to try to knock down the cans.

We did a ton of games last year, but I'm drawing a blank at the moment...

We did watch a kid friendly halloween movie - last year was a halloween Dora episode.

Decorate pumpkins. Carve pumpkins - play with guts, count the seeds, roast the seeds.

I don't do costumes, but we decorate masks.

Halloween coloring pages.

We play pin the nose on the pumpkin
Also drop acorns in the pumpkin (kind of like the old clothespin in a jar game)
We also do pumpkin bowling
We try to "flick" "with our fingers) acorns into a goal
