Halloween playdough ideas and playdough mats
at our most favourite time of the year! Not for the blood and
gore that's usually waiting to terrify you from row upon row of horrifyingly
gruesome shop window display but for the sense of community it brings. Trick
or Treat is the evening when our home actively connects with many of the
families and children living their lives around us.

Playdough activities helps to share what Halloween is about, the historical
and cultural aspects of a day long (or possibly longer) festival and the
different ways that people might be celebrating it.
Our enjoyment is dressing up. Guises that depict spiritual, magical, creepy
and spooky in a maybe unconventional way of remembering those who have walked
ahead of us, honouring fictional characters as well as their creators. Then
there's the village tour, refreshing our memory of road names, pathways and
discovering locations of faces whom would otherwise remain 'good morning'
on trips to the local post office!
Equally important of course are the brimming bags of gifted goodies, fun
which is not reserved solely for our youngest.
All this happening on what is probably the only day of the year that it's
As with the Fireworks code, there are rules we share as a family in order
to respect fellow residents and to keep everyone safe. From the onset, phones
are charged and on, no house decorations means no knocking, always politely
decline an invitation to go inside and before venturing out it can be useful
to agree routes so that everyone knows where to meet up, and that pretty
much sums up our out N about!
Indoors, and it's all about the pumpkins, dough both playing with and eating:)
Do have an awesome day and a spooktacularly amazing evening xx
