I’ve been a busy bee this last few weeks, with Halloween prep. Not just for my kids, but hundreds more at the elementary school carnival and the middle school haunted house. I managed to sneak in a bit of time for a quick decorating of our front porch. I love the lights at night, they are spooky, yet magical in white.
When facepainting at events, I try to look the part. For the elementary school, I wore a black and orange witch hat with matching fire butterfly.
The middle school was a different character. Demented art teacher.
I feel pretty, oh so pretty….
Over forty kids each night for four nights needed to be transformed into the characters in the “haunted school.” Conversations in the make-up room sounded like this:
ME: “Which rooms are you working?”
KIDS: “Upstairs hallway, Mary’s Classroom and Jason’s Classroom”
ME: “Okay, you’re freshly dead. You’re bruised and beaten, and you… brain eating zombie.”
