PostHeaderIcon Halloween thoughts continued....picture update!

Game is all set up and and ready for school for tomorrow....

So, the 2nd grade teacher has moved the Halloween Party up a day to tomorrow. I volunteered to do the game. Thankfully I had planned on setting it all up today so I will be ready for tomorrow. I am really working on going with the flow with the new easy going teacher, it’s not easy for me to be so carefree but it’s a work in progress people.

Anyway Sam’s 2nd grade teacher (Sam's in 11th now) asked me if I remembered the game I did in her class 9 years ago when I was her class mom. (Of course.) Would I mind giving it to her so she can do it in her class this year? (Of course.) So I decided to volunteer to do it for Mike’s class too. I am not class mom remember so I am just volunteering my services. I am happy to do it though, since it was a big hit with the 2nd grade set nine years ago, I am sure it will be a hit again. Plus my friend, Cowgirl is the class mom for that other class so we are going to prepare the games for both classes today. I will post pictures of the process later on this afternoon.

Maybe you have done it or heard about it before but in case you didn’t I thought I would share it with you. I hope it’s a hit for this class. This is my last hoorah…they really frown upon goofy games up at the High School.

Dr. Gross’s Lab
You will need 6 paper bags that are made so that you can't see through them. You may need to line the bags with plastic, or use plastic bags or small plastic bowls, since you need to place food (some wet) in the bags. On the front of each bag make a picture to “describe” what is in each bag (see below). Have the kids line up to take turns trying to discover what is in each bag. Talk it up a little…tell them it’s specimens from Dr. Gross’s Lab etc…Let them read the front then reach in to feel what’s inside (no peeking). After each kid is done give them the list (make enough copies) and have them fill in what he or she thought was in bag. The person who gets the most right or the closest to the right answer can receive a prize. (but everyone gets a prize in the end!!) Also consider moving the yuckiest item to last in case kids want to clean their hands:

Bag 1 - Ghoul’s Eyeballs (peeled grapes)

Bag 2 – Witches Fingers (dried out baby carrots)

Bag 3 - Bat’s Tongue (canned apricot halves with skin)

Bag 4 – Skeleton Teeth (unpopped popcorn)

Bag 5 – Monster Brains (cooked; oiled spaghetti)

Bag 6 – Mummy Skin (dried orange peel or slightly oiled tortillas

This is the list to give the kids to fill out can include clip art next to the creepy names on yours:

Ghoul’s Eyeballs really were: ___________

Witches Fingers really were: ___________

Bat’s Tongue really was ___________

Skeleton Teeth really were ___________

Monster Brains really were ___________

Mummy Skin really was ___________

Happy Halloweeeeeeeeen!

I think this sounds like fun. As for high teenage son always thinks my ideas are embarrassing. But when all his friends have fun and think I'm a cool mom...well, then I'm not so dumb after all.

Hilarious. Just last weekend my boyfriend was talking about playing this as a kid. He didn't know what it was called, though.
