Attività 1: Apple bobbing

Apple bobbing, also known as bobbing for apples, is a game often played on Halloween. It requires nothing more than a large tub of water, enough apples to cover the surface, and a group of people (usually children) trying to catch one apple with their teeth. Use of arms is not allowed, and often are tied behind the back to prevent cheating.

Steps

  • Find a suitable tub. Place the tub on the ground.
  • Fill the tub with cool water. Fill the tub about 3/4 full.
  • Float several apples in the water. Put as many as will fit in your tub, but not so many that the apples don’t move: you want it to be a bit of a challenge. Choose smaller varieties of apples for children so it will be easier for them to sink their teeth into the apple.
  • Select the order of players. Have participants kneel down. Each player must try to grab an apple with only their teeth — you can’t use your hands! Sink your teeth into the flesh, or try to catch the stem in your teeth.
  • Select the winner.The person who catches an apple in the quickest time is the winner. You could hand out prizes like caramel apples, popcorn balls, candy, or ribbons.

  4. Cut out mouth and nose shapes with scissors.
  5. Have your child glue the shape on the paper plate.
  6. Turn the plate over, and tape half of the ice lolly stick for a stem (you can colour it with green marker first) at the top of the mask. Tape the straw on the bottom half of the mask to make easy holding for hands. Add any embellishments, like ribbon if you want.

A Haunted House on Halloween Night

“This is really spooky

I don’t wanna go

Don’t worry, it’s Mary’s same old house, dressed up for a Halloween party!

Just like us!

Why does Halloween have to be scary? I don’t like it

Getting scared can be exciting. It’s like a surprise!

Come on! Give it a try with me!”

In a haunted house on Halloween night,

ghosts and goblings, what a fright.

Bats and jack-o-lanterns too.

A scary, ghostly, ghastly zoo.

In a haunted house on Halloween night,

ghosts and goblings, what a fright.

Slippery, flippery, drippery frogs,

hiding under rotting logs.

Chains are rattling, voices cry,

lightning flashes in the sky.

Spiderwebs and monsters too.

I wouldn’t go in if I were you.

In a haunted house on Halloween night,

ghosts and goblings, what a fright.

Creepy, crawly, grimy goo,

a wormy, squirmy, slimy stew.

In a haunted house on Halloween night,

ghosts and goblings, what a fright.

Skeletons and vampires too,

cauldrons filled with witch’s brew.

Chains are rattling, voices cry,

lightning flashes in the sky.

Spiderwebs and monsters too.

I wouldn’t go in if I were you.

“Humpty, are you ok?

Yes, but I’m not coming out!”

In a haunted house on Halloween night,

ghosts and goblings, what a fright.

I wouldn’t go in if I were you.

You just might hear someone say, “Boo!”.

“Humpty! That was super spooky!

I guess being scary can be fun… Sometimes …on Halloween anyway.

Boo! Happy Halloween!”
