    Week 6 - Frightening Finish Week! October 21 - October 27, 2018

    • Family Fun

      • Enjoy a planned activity this week!

      • Watch It’s The Great Pumpkin together! Or pick another favorite! Or both!

      • Surprise the kids by playing Thriller or Monster Mash for an impromptu mini dance party!
    • Halloween Clearance Shopping Planning

      • Some stores will start marking things down this week! Keep an eye out!

      • Review store blogs as desired to plan for trips! All Things Target, etc.

      • Will you use candy in holiday baking this year? Score some deals on Halloween candy - once it is out of the wrapper no one will know!

        • Locate, print, review coupons for candy! Check expiration dates!
      • Plug in plans for snagging your deals on your calendar tool!
    • Classroom Treats (if applicable)

      • Package up treats in an easy to carry bag or slip into your child’s backpack the night before they need to take them into school - if in a separate bag put it right with your child’s backpack so it doesn’t get overlooked in the morning!
    • Fight Last Minute Fright Double Check

      • Review all lists and double check items needed are on hand!

    We are set!

    Last week we caught Toy Story of Terror on ABC. It was the first time I had heard of it or had seen it. We enjoyed it but real little ones would probably be scared.

    We ran out of candy corn for Candy Corn Bingo. I went to the grocery store to pick up a couple more bags and they had only 10-15 bags left! I don't know if it is just my store but I was a bit surprised to see such limited supplies two weeks before Halloween.

    Wow! I am surprised at that too, Mary! Usually there are TONS of candy corn left after the holiday. Maybe stores got wise and ordered less to cause a scarcity.

    Then it will be impossible to find, lol!

    Toy Store Tower of Terror??? How did I not know about this? On a mission now...

    I think we are set too! Camper is 95% packed and will finish the rest tonight! Candy, costumes, treat pail, candy bowl, check! check! check!

    Can't wait!!!
