The Vavenby Primary School students had a very good time at their Hallowe’en costume party on Thursday, Oct. 31.

The first activity was jack o’ lantern designing. Each student was given a pumpkin and drew a face on it for teacher Ms. Clark and teacher assistant Ms. Pigeon to carve out. When done with the designing the children had some free time.

The next activity they participated in was making ghosts. Each student, one at a time, was called into the hall, removed their shoes and socks, sat down, and had the bottom of their feet painted white. This was a difficult activity for those children who are ticklish.

The student was picked up, his/her feet were pressed onto a piece of black construction paper, and then the child was picked up again and seated. Their feet were washed in a bucket of water and dried off by Clark and Pigeon. The papers were put on the student’s desk and mouths and eyes were added later.

The last activity before lunch was to peer into a jar for “ghost eyeballs”, very gently remove one, and then watch the eyeball disappear when it was dropped back into the jar.

In the afternoon the children were given tea lights that janitor Mrs. Bellows had brought for the jack o’ lanterns, were given treats, finished their ghosts, and watched a Scooby Doo movie.
