So we went on with the idea, altough we've never celebrated Halloween in the American way, we had to do it now, and I was even an important member of the party committee:-).
As we don't own a single Halloween decoration, and as you cannot buy anything Halloweeny here, I had to make my own decorations:-)
This is already the preparations for my squidgi game, a mixture of jelly, cooked spaghetti and grapes, to imitate brain, worms and eyes, yak:-)... and of course some small candies to dig after...
...while decorating the party area:
... and this is Soffi, ready for the party in her pink princesse dress, she was quite scary with that wig:-). She loved dressing up... I thought at first she wasn't gonna wear a costume, but I could hardly take it of of her after the party. The day after they had Halloween in the nursery, and she wore that dress the whole day:-), even in the sandpit...
... and the party begins... Soffi was horrified of the scary costumes at first.
The apple bobbin game:
Soffi didn't bother picking the apple with her mouth, just picked one with her hand:-)
With our pumpkin:
The scary dance game:
The contestants of the Pumpkin competition:-), we didn't win... but as you can see, some of the pumpkins were rather creative:
This is my squidgy game:-), some of the kids didn't want to touch it at all, Soffi did go for a dig...
