We use bones like they are rhythm sticks during the month of October! You can use them to tap together, tap the floor, play like a hammer, and so much more. They are also fun to use with the cauldron for stirring the witches brew!
Cauldrons are fun to make witches brew in! You can use plastic bugs/frogs or fruit/veggie shakers while creating a silly brew. Or do the whole thing with pretend play items that we add to the brew. Bonus: you can turn it over and play it like a drum with the bones, sticks, or even hands.
Scarves or Kleenex are great props for being a ghost! Kleenex is fun because it is small and light weight, so when you blow it into the air it can soar pretty far. If you use scarves, the kiddos can also pretend to be ghosts by putting the scarf over their head.
My mom hates spiders! Some kiddos in our classes also don’t love them, so beware when you get them out! The kids can play with the spiders crawling on their body or the floor. Bonus: If you have a large drum (or small) they are very fun to watch jump around on the Remo Floor Tom 0r Remo Gathering Drum!
