Historical Halloween

Halloween is here again, and my kids were responsible for coming up with a costume that was a historical myth or legend. This is their class’s second year doing this and I think it is such a wonderful and creative idea.  But because the announcement of this assignment was a little bit later than expected the kids already had planned their costumes.

These awesome GLOW IN THE DARK pajamas have been a huge hit in our house and I love looking at the baby in our bed, in the middle of the night still glowing….  But how were these to be historical?  Well, T decided to be the skeleton of Robin Hood and added a hat to his costume.  Where as L switched it up even more and chose a leopard costume.  Hmmm, how were we going to come up with an oral presentation for that one.  Well, we did and it was fabulous. T told about how Robin Hood became an outlaw, and L told the story of how leopard got its spots, adapted from Rudyard Kipling’s story.

The costumes may change again for the real deal tomorrow, not quite sure what will transpire, but looking forward to a fun filled day.

Also anticipating a visit from our sugar fairy!!
