Socerers’ Halloween Party, at Kids’ Gallery

We attended the Halloween Party at Kids’ Gallery last month, and lived to tell the tale! Joel is currently obsessed with all things spooky, and was badgering me for a Halloween party, so I took the easy way out and signed him and Nic up.

Halloween costumes are way overpriced in my opinion, and I didn’t feel like splurging on something that the kid most definitely will not wear nor fit into again. As you may have read in my previous post, I made a paper doll costume for Nic. Joel requested to attend the party as a ghost, so I had an easy time with his costume as it only involved a piece of white sheet and a pair of scissors.

The theme for the night was “Harry Potter” thus all the Kids’ Gallery teachers dressed accordingly. The children were divided into 4 teams, and there were a total of 4 stations. You get a small bag of candy after every station. At the games room, you get rewarded at every booth!

The first station we went to was the craft room where the kids made a photo frame.

The frame was made out of cardboard, which I’m guessing that it was from their previous event. A good idea nonetheless, to involve recycled materials!

Hair ribbons are the latest fad this season.

The completed frame. I like how the witch could “fly” as she was attached to a straw.

The second station was SNACK TIME!

This was my second favourite station because of the décor. The food was also aptly named, Siew Mai was “Steamed Brains!” Parents were most welcome to help themselves to the spread, and they were thoughtful to provide coffee and tea for us. After a quick bite, the kids were heralded for picture taking.

Joel’s turn. I have no idea where he learnt the “rock on” sign from!

The third station was games.

The last station was the Maze room, where the kids walked on balance beams amidst a sea of giant spiders.

After completing the 4 stations, the teams met again, and did their house cheer. This was followed by what is best described as a kids’ rave party, as they switched off the lights, passed them some glow sticks, and blasted the theme song from Ghostbusters. A few toddlers started crying, but the older kids seemed to like the rowdiness. Then it was time to hand out the Best Costume awards. A little one dressed as Harry Potter, complete with round glasses scored the Best dressed boy award.

Winner of Best dressed girl! Yay!

The frame with the picture taken earlier. Would be better if it was more zoomed in on the subject.

Time was a little tight at the craft station, and much more relaxed at the games room. The kids repeated the games about three times, and had time to cross over to the other room to try the “Maze” again. I would like more craft activities compared to games, but that’s just me. Also, I would prefer to reduce the amount of candy given out, and replace them with maybe some stickers instead. On the whole, the kids had fun, and it was a memorable experience for them!
