Oriental Trading Fall/Halloween Party

I'm here to share with you some fun Fall/Halloween party ideas with you from Oriental Trading!  I was excited when Oriental Trading contacted me because last year my "Spooky Centers" was a flop.  As my kiddos were packing up, one asked when we were going to do our Spooky Centers...
This year, I stocked up with some fun activities and games that can be used during your party.  The best part is it can be educational!
Here are some fun games that I got from Oriental Trading:
Candy Corn Bowling- Have your kiddos record how many they started with and subtract how many they knocked over!  Great subtraction practice and how cute are those little plastic candy corn pins!?
Jack O Lantern Bean Bag Toss- This one is fun because you can have your kiddos add up their points (older kiddos) OR change the numbers so you kiddos can practice adding smaller numbers.
After playing some games, you will need some PRIZES!  Check out the prizes I picked up!
I also picked up some Monster pencils!
Check out these fun crafts and activity items!  
I like these Pumpkin Patch sticker scenes because they can be used for your Halloween/Fall party centers or you can throw them in after you finish up a lesson!

I love paint dotters and these are perfect to use with those!  These Fall Dot Marker Activity Sheets have many different scenes and you get 50 in one pack!

I recently blogged about these foam leaf stickers!  These can be used for counting, patterns, or sorting activities!
I received these community helper vests a couple months ago.  I found these Community Helper Masks to go with them!

I found these Community Helper Masks to go with them! 



 Perfect for your dramatic play area or during your community helper unit!
I hope you found some fun things to include in your classroom this Fall :)

* Note: I was given these items from Oriental Trading in exchange for a review.  All opinions are my own.

Fall Freebie

Fall is here which means cooler temps and changing leaves!
I got some foam leaf stickers from the Oriental Trading Company.  I did similar word problem activity a few years ago!

Here is what we did with them!  Each kiddo got their own tree to color.
Once they had their tree all colored I gave them a random amount of leaves.  
They stuck the leaves wherever they wanted on or around their tree.
When they were done they traced the bottom sentence and filled in the blank with the number of leaves they were given.

They LOVED this project and it was great counting practice!  If you want a copy of this page click HERE!
