Halloween is one American tradition that the YSA kids seem to really enjoy. As one of them said – pretty similar to our Farshang holiday and this way we can have two of them! So who doesn’t like to dress up?
We started by buying 5 fair sized pumpkins, which we carved on Monday October 21, 2013 as our FHE activity. Last year we had to do this in the RS kitchen, as the recreation room was getting the floor refinished. MUCH easier in our recreation room…
Some of the kids present did not want to get their hands icky… so we decided to do one.
These pumpkins were used as decorations for the Halloween Buli, the following Friday. We refrigerated them from M-F. We bought little battery lights that look like candles to put inside them. We used the pumpkins in the stairwell at the entry level and up the stairs to our recreation room.
