Well I know what I’ve been told/U gotta work to feed the soul

Simple and Easy Halloween Game...The Boo Bag! Finn is asking more and more what certain words "starts" with so we made a sweet little game called the Boo Bag today.

I asked him to name some items that meant Halloween and he came up with witch, pumpkin, leaf, candy, and so on.. I made some quick paper cut outs and added some cards that said BOO and grabbed a bag to put them all.

We took turns grabbing out a paper shape and the object of the game is to be able to name and identify beginning consonants.

Pumpkin! Pumpkin starts with a P
Yeah! You get to keep the card you identify.
The person with the most cards wins.
BUT! If you draw a BOO card you must scream BOO and run around the room like a maniacal Halloween terror!

Seriously, it is fun!

Get me delivered to yr email xo

We drove by the other day as we were cutting through your neighborhood and I waved. My son asked who I was waving too and I told him "a very cool Mom". This confirms it.

YOU are the coolest mom, ever! I'm so putting this little goody in my saved file for a future day ... when language develops a bit more. lol right now, we're busy laughing at silly words we make up.
