      I have a preschooler at home who comes home from preschool every day
      with a new song. She sings all the time. Her school does not
      participate in holiday celebrations, however, because she has a very
      wide array of culters in her class.

      I remember some songs from when I was a kid, but not well enough to
      teach Gillian any of them, so I set off to search some songs up.

      Or, rather, it started off as songs. I also ended up with a list of
      10 coloring pages for my husband to print out at work (no printer
      here), and some other activities, recipes, and other fun stuff.

      I thought I’d share my stuff here for everyone to enjoy!

      Songs

      The Haunted House” (Tune of “Wheels on the Bus”)

      The ghost in the house goes “Boo! Boo! Boo!” “Boo! Boo! Boo!, Boo!
      Boo! Boo!” The ghost in the house goes “Boo! Boo! Boo!” On Halloween.

      The steps in the house goes “Creek, creek, creek…” The cats in the
      house go “Meow, meow, meow…” The mice in the house go “Squeak,
      squeak, squeak..” The people in the house go “Eek, eek, eek…”.

      Pumpkin, Pumpkin

      Pumpkin, pumpkin Sitting on a wall (have children sit down) Pumpkin,
      pumpkin Tip and fall (have children tip over) Pumpkin, pumpkin
      Rolling down the street (child rolls on floor) Pumpkin, pumpkin
      Trick or treat!!!!

      Five Little Pumpkins

      Five little pumpkins (hold up fingers for pumpkins) Sitting on a
      gate The first once said “Oh my! It’s getting late” The second one
      said, “There are witches in the air” The third once said ” But we
      don’t care” The fourth once said “It’s Halloween fun” Ooooooh went
      the wind And out when the lights (clap hands to the word “out”) And
      the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight (roll arms).

      Food for Halloween Parties

      Candy Corn by the Slice (Pizza)
      1 package refridgerated pizza crust dough (10 ounces)
      2 cups shredded Chedder Cheese, divided into 1 cup portions

      1/3 cup tomato sauce

      *to make white cheese sauce, mix 3 tablespoons vegetable broth with
      3 tablespoons mascarpone cheese in a sauce pan over low heat, until

      spray. Fit pizza dough into pan, shaping as needed.

      2. Place 1 cup cheddar cheese in medium bowl. Add paprika and stir
      until cheese is evenly colord; set aside. Make white cheese sauce.

      3. Spread white cheese sauce in the center of the pizza in 4 inch
      diameter circle. Arrange mozzarella cheese on top of white sauce.
      Place 3 inch ring of tomato sauce around the center circle; top with
      paprika and cheddar cheese mixture. Use remaining 1 cup of cheddar
      cheese to create 1 1/2 inch boarder around edge of pizza.

      cheese is melted and bubbling. Cut into wedges and serve.

      plates and fondue forks for dipping.

      Add to the fun: set out a plate of graham crackers for a variation
