It's Playtime: This is Halloween!

I'll admit it, Halloween is my favorite day of the year.  I love dressing-up, I love Candy, and I love all things spooky that go bump in the night.  This week It's Playtime features my favorite Halloween activities from the past week so read on....IF YOU DARE!

Who doesn't want to serve up these Cheesy Witchy Fingers! from Mud Pies and Marmalade at their next Halloween party?  Once I checked out the recipe I realized how easy they are to make.  I bet they would be great served with some "bloody" pizza dipping sauce!

These adorable Tissue Paper Mummies from happy hooligans double as finger puppets.  What's better is they are so simple, your little one won't have any trouble putting them together.  

Make, do & friend put together this cute jack o' lantern sensory bag made with red lentils, foam shapes, and....well check out their site to find out more!

Develop some fine motor skills and sharpen creativity with these Styrofoam Monster Sculptures from The Chocolate Muffin Tree.  

Don't forget to include music and rhymes into your child's playtime!  Playing with words 365 posted these 10 Fall & Halloween Songs & Fingerplays for inspiration.
