Halloween. Ideas for a Kids Party

Be careful on the night of 31 October! It is Hallowe’en ( Halloween). It means “holy evening”.
This is the night when witches and ghosts come out! 

Pumpkin is one of main symbals of this holiday. People make jack-o’-lanterns cutting  the holes in pumpkins in a form of a face and put candles inside. They decorate their houses, gardens and windows with them. 
Kids  dress up in costums of ghosts,witches, sceletons,etc.  and paint their faces. They have  different street  events like pumpkin-picking, face painting, mask-making crafts, a Halloween costume shows   and Halloween parties.

 Sometimes, they go to people's houses and knock on the door, saying `Trick or treat!’ The person who opens the door must give the children a treat - some sweets or chocolate.
If not, the children play a trick on them.For example, they draw a funny picture on the door, or throw flour at the window.

This is a splendid song for teaching Halloween vocabulary!

I'm sure, your kids will like these poems:

Witch, Witch

Withch witch, where do you fly?
Under the clouds and over the sky.
Witch, witch, what do you eat?
Little black apples from Hurricane Street.
Witch, witch, what do you drink?
Vinegar and good red ink.
Witch, witch, where do you sleep?
Up in the clouds where the pillows are cheap.


First, put your clothes on inside out.
Then walk backward to where two roads meet.
If you wait until midnight, you will see a witch!

 Five little pumpkins

 Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, "oh my it's getting late."
The second one said, "there are witches in the air."
The third one said, "but we don't care!"
The fourth one said, "let's run and run and run."
The fifth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
OOOhh OOOhh went the wind
And out went the lights
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.


Jack-o-Lantern, Jack-o-Lantern,
You are such a funny sight.
As you sit there by the window,
Looking out into the night.
You were once a sturdy pumpkin,
growing on a curly vine.
Now you are a Jack-o-lantern,
See your night lights shine.

  This video can be used  for a role-play or a  game: it's really funny!
