This last Saturday was my Halloween Festival. I was a little nervous weather wise if #1 it would be too hot (We are still getting 90 degree weather here in AZ- Crazy!) and #2 if it would rain during the festival. It ended up raining all morning long and then there was a break in the afternoon when the festival was. And I’m not kidding you, as soon as the last family stepped inside (I open the doors to have everyone go outside to eat goodies) it started pouring. So it all worked out. Though warmer than I would have liked, it was manageable.
I thought I would share what a typical Halloween festival looks like.
Halloween Festival is held in my home, so I decorate like crazy and take out all the furniture in my living room. I rent chairs and can fit up to 35 typically. I can have anywhere from 2-3 sessions. I break them up an hour apart.
I have my families bring in goodies to share, but every year I like to make something fun. My only requirement is it has to be easy and it has to be fun for Halloween. This year it was these fun donuts!
In between students performances I like do something fun to break it up a bit. After all it is a Halloween FESTIVAL! So this year I decided we were going to do some Halloween Trivia. I first just asked the question to see if anyone knew the answer. If nobody could get it, then we went to the multiple choice options. Whoever was first in getting the answer correct got a homemade popcorn ball! You can download the Halloween Trivia cards to use with your students or really whoever you would like for FREE here. Enjoy!
After all the students perform we take a group picture and then I give them a little treat from me.
Then it’s time to eat goodies!
I always have a guess how many candies in the jar contest…
More picture taking!
Halloween festival is one of my favorite events. It’s so much fun for both the students, their families and I. And as you can see, I even get into the dress up fun!
