Halloween is such a fun holiday for the young at heart. We get to dress up, play tricks on people and of course, get treats. We did all three at Oatland this past Tuesday. First we learned about treats that animals prefer. I told you Mom’s about an awesome app called Tiny Tap that you can make up your own games. It is really a fabulous teaching tool. I made a game with a picture of the animal and two pictures of treats, and the kids had to touch the treat that the animal prefers. Now, don’t try to push the pictures here (it has to be done in the app), but here are the animals and their treats that I quizzed them on: (Answers will be at the bottom of this post.)
After learning about treats I read a Cat in the Hat Story about what animal tricks and treats and then we had our own trick (broken nose and finger trick) and then treat:
At the end of the class, the giant armadillo walked the tots to the barn where we reverse trick or treated with the animals. Soldier Joe our donkey and Streaker, our hog both got peppermints.
It was the best Halloween Party!!
