Children’s Trick-or-Treat Scavenger Hunt

Miss Vanda is not able to host her Halloween Party and Parade this year.  She sure will miss seeing everyone dressed up in their costumes!  She is providing a fun Halloween activity that you can do at home instead.  It is a Trick-or-Treat Scavenger Hunt from our friends at  See if you can find all the items in the list over the next 2 weeks. During the last week of October, come to the Children’s Room with proof that you did the scavenger hunt, such as a note from your parent, and you will receive a treat bag.  We hope you have a happy and safe Halloween!
