With it being half term, I agreed to my little girl having a Halloween party and her little mates would be free to attend. I think that she’d initially asked for it because she’s mad on the film hotel Transylvania, so I found her an outfit with bats on it so she could pretend to be her favourite character, Mavis. Only a few days before, it dawned on me that I had to entertain 15 kids for an afternoon and had no idea how to do it. Luckily, I have you wonderful listeners on Heart Breakfast with Rich and Zoe to help me out with suggestions for apple bobbing and eating doughnuts hanging on a string – with your hands behind your back (it makes for a great video too!)
But my favourite suggestion came from Keren who came up with a twist on a musical bumps. It’s the game that I was most excited to play when I was a girl, but rather than the kids dancing around before sitting down on the floor, they move around pretending to be ghosts. But there’s a problem and it’s all mine, I just don’t have the heart to get any of them out when they’re last to sit down on their bums. So, what ends up happening is a 40 minute ‘practice’ round of sitting on the floor when the music stops, where everyone wins! It would break my heart if they got upset, because I told them that they were the loser, I’d be gutted for them and just couldn’t cope with the guilt.
