#Halloween family fun at the library
Are you looking for something to do for #Halloween besides trick or treat? Check out your local libraries. Our local library always has something going on for the kids whether young or old. This year they have the usual trick-or treating at the library for the younger kids. They are also offering some other special activities on making Boo bubbles and paranormal activities for the older kids. I was interested to see what other libraries offer in other areas and there are some pretty cool activities and #Halloween Family fun! Some libraries offer a whole night of #Halloween activities with bouncy houses, face painting, games and other neat things to do with your family.
Others offer #Halloween crafts, story readings and teaching how to apply costume make-up. The events are not typically on #Halloween but a few days before or different activities offered throughout the month.
What a great and typically “Free” way to have some extra holiday family fun!
I came across some pretty neat websites for #Halloween activities that I thought I would share filled with activities that are fun and educational.
(Adult supervision required-remember safety first)
Go online and google your public library to see what activities they are offering for #Halloween Family Fun! And enjoy the time with your family learning, playing and spending time together! Your kid will also get another wear out of that Halloween costume. Make it a Boo….tiful day! All of my best, Dyan

#PumpkinGlobe A Fun and Educational Way to decorate a pumpkin
Not sure how to decorate your pumpkins this year? There are so many different ways to decorate or carve a pumpkin. We personally have not carved pumpkins yet at home because of my daughters age and quite frankly, even though I love pumpkin seeds, I don’t ever feel like dealing with the extra mess involved and my daughter would rather create with decorating then to carve.
If your are looking for a fun, different and new way to decorate your pumpkin this year, why not make it educational and decorate a #pumpkinglobe. This is a great way to mix holiday fun with learning. One of my favorite things to do! Learn new things while having fun!
A pumpkin of any size
A globe to review all the continents, countries, bodies of water, etc
Blue Paint (for the color of water) to paint the base of the pumpkin
Other colors of paint to paint the continents
Black marker to label the continents
That is it! How easy and fun!
Of course you can make it more involved depending on the age of your child. If your child is younger, just the basics will do. The seven continents labeled by name. If your child is older, you can get much more detailed. You can draw the equator, add countries, even states and add the oceans - if you are so inclined.
Depending on your creativity, you can do more than just paint the shapes of the countries on the pumpkins. You can cut out the shapes of the countries with construction paper or paper you painted in the shapes of the countries, use fabric, colored thumbtacks to shape the countries or what ever else. It’s up to you and your imagination. Make it your own design. The most important thing is to have fun while creating it, to learn new things about the world we live in and to spend quality time doing it!
While your out and about today, pick-up an extra pumpkin at the grocery store, get the needed supplies and create your pumpkin world with your child. Take the time and enjoy the time teaching and/or reinforcing their geography knowledge. I would love to hear from you. If you decorate a #pumpkinglobe this year. Send me a picture and I will post it on my Halloween page. Have a fun and educational day! All my best, Dyan
