What’s real and what’s not real…
Today the children had fun making monsters for later discussion about ghouls, goblins and witches — what’s real and what’s not real.
Games are a great way to help children realize monsters aren’t real. Dressing in costume and making a game of it can prove to children that masks aren’t real.
You can also make up stories about the things that frighten children, and give the stories a happy ending. For example, we’ve been reading “Room on the Broom” about a witch who is kind and friendly to animals.
