I’m all up for Christmas, elves, fairy lights and tinsel tack, but when it comes to Halloween, well, trick or moreso, I’m a bit of a Scrooge to be honest, for several reasons really; firstly I don’t find fun or see the point in scaring people, secondly I don’t mind opening the door & handing out sweets but I don’t feel comfortable taking my own children out asking other people for sweets, almost like begging, just don’t get it? & thirdly, sweets. Need I say more.
However, we do celebrate pumpkins. Carving pumpkins is fantastic activity to support those early literacy, fine motor skills!!
And love a good Pumpin soup, baked in the actual pumpkin, with warm rolls and roasted pumpkin seeds.
Pumpkin day is our Halloween!
