We, parents, did a lot of preparation for the big day, which was the 30th instead of the 31st October.
It all began in the nursery. A little costume party was organised in the afternoon and parents were invited. The kids had a short performance of singing and dancing in Hungarian and mostly in English. Songs like these:
E. knows them well enough as we've been watching nothing else but Halloween songs since she saw the Dem bones song:
E. knew exactly what she wanted to dress up as from the very beginning. What else than a skeleton. (I got her skeleton costume -pyjamas- from H&M).
As a part of the party the kids could have a look at how a pumpkin is carved into a jack-o-lantern.
|Guests are arriving in costumes|
|We added face paint to maximise the scariness|
|Mummies, oat-pumpkin biscuits and other snacks|
Batman is playing with the balloon, Pumpkin and Spider are looking for some toys, Fairy wants her Mommy in the backround and Skeleton is just gazing into air.
What a company!
The parties, the excitement, the food, the costumes, the decorations and the atmosphere were all great and memorable for both parents and their little ones. See you next year!
