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

We celebrated Dia De Los Muertos the best way we knew how by doing crafts, dancing and singing songs inspired by the movie COCO.
First, it was so much fun decorating for this event because of all the festive colors.
We also got in the festive spirit by painting our faces and dressing up as the characters from the movie. The kids got a choice to paint their faces too.
All the kids got headbands or hats decorated with tissue paper flowers.
Thanks JG for sharing this photo with US!
We did crafts, lots of crafts, including making lanterns and frames. We asked people to bring a photo of their loved one or the kids could use photos we printed from the movie.
Afterwards, the kids were able to hang their frames on our ofrenda.
And then then the festivities began. We sang a song from the movie, the kids learned a latin dance and we played a pass the guitar game.
Here’s a short video of the all the fun the kids had.

This year we’re excited to get a visit from the Pumpkin King! He brought all the spooky fun to our Halloween party and the trick or treaters loved seeing Halloween Town through his eyes.
We started the party with some facepainting. The kids had a choice to do a full Jack face or something small like a pumpkin on their cheek.
The Pumpkin King facilitated a spooky bingo game where the kids got to earn candy even if they didn’t get a bingo.
Our favorite time of the day was story time. Jack told us about how he found our about Christmas and his renewed for his favorite Holiday. It even ended with a snowfall.
Jack played several games with the kids including our most beloved game of Freeze Dance. We made it more Halloween Party worthy by asking the kids to dance like zombies or monsters.
The grand attraction was the pumpkin hunt! The kids got to fill their bags with pumpkins that contained candy, treat and tricks.
They really loved discovering the treasures inside their pumpkins.
Finally, we ended with some crafts. Foam mask were available and the kids got to choose which masks to decorate.
One final candy filled activity was necklace making. They could string their necklace with gummies, pretzels, foot loops, mints and more. It was fun to make, wear and eat!
We had fun traveling to Halloween Town for a few days. It’s one of our favorite times of the year!
