Halloween at School

Halloween continues to grow in popularity. Children anticipate Halloween almost as much as Christmas. But Halloween, with its scary side, holds a special attraction for children. A Halloween class party, with the usual Halloween candy as prizes, is exciting for children of all ages. How about a 'cat walk' for young children. Create a pathway around the room. Place paper cats along the path. All of the cats are white except one black cat. Children walk the patch as music plays. When the music stops, whoever is on the black cat wins. Kids love to dance.
