The kids created prototypes today for their Halloween extravaganza.
But first, they needed some practice in walking like zombies.
Laying the foundation for the graveyard scene.
Carving apples to prepare for carving the real-deal pumpkins.
Setting the scene: collecting leaves from the street for the graveyard.
Making a body.
Spider Cave, complete with webs.
A trip to Scrap!
Fake blood: corn syrup, cocoa powder, and red food coloring. They certainly fooled me.
A mystery plan, in the works!
Today the kids split up into groups of three to begin planning for the Halloween extravaganza slated for Friday. Their challenge? They must work together to think up and create the creepiest, spookiest Halloween scene they can devise.
At snack time, Peter showed everyone his declaration for the year: creating prosciutto. He explained the ball joints in a pig’s leg and showed the kids different pieces of the leg. Then the meat went in the salt bin for a month!
The rest of the day was spent working on prototypes for the Halloween scenes.
The short list of supplies.
Stay tuned for progress updates all week!
