Halloween crept up fast, and I didn’t even carve my pumpkin! I went trick or treating with one of my friends, and I dressed up as a cowgirl! What did you dress up as?
Fall has come, but I can feel winter transitioning in already. Trees have lost almost all their leaves, the air is chilly, and I heard that it’s supposed to snow next weekend!
Every year, my school has a costume parade where each class goes around showing off their costumes, while Halloween music is playing. I like seeing other people’s costumes, especially the Strong Start kid’s costumes. Strong Start is preschool program for toddles at my school. Parents always dress their kids up with the most creative and cute costumes!
My favourite candy at Halloween is probably the Swedish Fish or Fuzzy Peaches. I also like chocolate. I mean, who doesn’t? I always try to find what my teachers enjoy when I trick or treat, like in grade two, my teacher loved Aero chocolate bars, and she ended up getting more than half of my chocolate that year. Sometimes, though, I have no idea what kind of candy they’re talking about.
This year my class created Halloween safety skits. My group got the topic of neighbourhood safety, and we had to show what not to do, and what to do. We acted out kids getting invited into a stranger’s house, and kids getting into a stranger’s car for a ride home. Then Patricia the Halloween Fairy(a character my class created) waved her wand, we went back in time, and made better choices. We performed these skits in front of the whole school on Halloween.
What’s your favourite candy? What did you dress up as? Did you do anything special at your school for Halloween?
Happy Halloween and happy blogging!
