What an amazing October at our indoor playground. We had our annual pumpkin hunts again this year. They were a big hit as always. We had some visits from some old guests and also some new ones as well. Among returning visitors to our Halloween Events was Jack Skellington.
We also had a visit from Miguel for our Coco Party.
This year we also had a new guest, Vampirina .
In some the Halloween events we played bingo and some of them we did tattoos.
We read books. Vampirinia had a book about fall and we read a story about Coco.
Our favorite is acting out the story from Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack likes that too.
Sometimes we sing songs or do crafts.
The kids favorite thing is our annual pumpkin hunt where they pick up treasures hidden in pumpkins.
Join us next year for Halloween events. You can find events on our online store.
At Imagine Play we often try to think of creative ways to add fun surprises to our special events and birthday parties. We love these Coco inspired party headband that we created for our Dia De Los Muertos party. This is a great party favor for your guests and it’s easier to make than you think.
Start by cutting out squares of tissues paper. They can be between 3×3 or 4×4 in length. They don’t need to be an extra square.
Cut the tissue paper into a round shape. Again, they don’t need to be a perfect circle.
Now fold each piece of tissue paper into fours so it looks like a butterfly.
Group each butterfly into groups of 4 or 5. You can do a larger group if you want fuller flowers.
Use some glue to glue the flower together or if you are low on time like us you can glue the tissue directly to the headband with hot glue, but be careful. Use three different colors for the most festival feel. You can do more colors too to make the headband feel more full.
We gave these headbands to girls, but also did the same technique to top hats for boys. With some facepainting, it was the perfect party favor!
