Halloween Playlist

So, I'm trying to come up with a Kindergarten Friendly playlist for the party on Thursday. Here's what I have so far:

Purple People Eater
Werewolves of London-Warren Zevon
Monster Mash
I Want Candy-Bow Wow Wow
This Is Halloween-from Nightmare Before Christmas
I Put A Spell On You- Screamin' Jay Hawkins
Weird Science-Oingo Boingo
Munsters Theme
Addams Family Theme
Love Potion No. 9
Little Red Riding Hood---Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs
Witch Doctor

Also, the activity list at this point is as follows:

Party Picture Taking

Frame Decorating
Pumpkin Toss
Halloween Ring Toss or Pumpkin Bowling - 35 minutes total

Group Game: Mummy Race – Dulce
For this game you divide the class up in to teams. Then you choose one child from every team to be the mummy. Each team has to wrap up their mummy in a set amount of time, making sure to leave the nose and eye area open. After each team has finished wrapping their mummy then the mummy has to hop (with out braking any of the wrapping) down to the finish line. Then winning team gets a prize. Make sure to have plenty of paper and to play some devilish music like monster mash while the game is being played.
10 minutes

Book: Halloween by Jerry Seinfeld
10 minutes

Hand out Goodie Bags

5 minutes

Okay, so what are your thoughts?? Will it work? Are there other songs you can think of??

It's almost Halloween!!!

So, we finally bought Jackson's costume last night. I decided to drag my feet a little more than usual since he has changed his mind an average of twice a day. We have gone from Lego Batman to Ironman to Optimus Prime and (my favorite) a Native American. That's right, a blonde hair, blue eyed, creamy white skinned Native American. I really think it was just the appeal of a mohawk that did it for him. So, I let him wear a mohawk to school a couple of days and got rid of that little urge. All that to say, Jackson is going to be...drumroll please....a Ninja. Yep, he never mentioned a desire to be a Ninja at all but fell in love with the costume at the store last night.

Sebastian will be dressed up as a soccer player. I know, it's a stretch. The boy sleeps with two soccer balls every night and wakes up to dribble a ball out of his room and through the house every morning. I wore a necklace yesterday that had a silver circle and he kept chanting "ball, ball, ball." This boy loves soccer so it's a safe bet that he'll love his costume.

So, stay posted because I'll have pics of them in their costumes this weekend from our Fall Fun for Families at our church. Also, I am room mom for Jackson's Kindgergarten class. HOORAY!!! I am getting things ready for their Halloween party. I'll keep you posted.
