There were a few years in elementary schoolwhen we lived in our spiritual community in California that the parents and teachers created a magical journey full of beautiful costumes, tents, riddles, lake crossings, homemade sweets and prizes. This really set the standard for halloween and nothing has been able to match it. Although, i hear that many waldorf schools pull off a magical experience for their communities which i am excited to be a part of by next halloween with my littles!
Nonetheless, we had a wonderful celebration here in Panama. With trick or treating and all! And we made it through without a lick of candy!
my three angels...i adore them! (why can't they just smile for the pic?)
Satya trying out her magic wand on Oso. she said "poof"
Aiyana loved to say "trick or treat" really loudly!
she thought this was way cool!
the trick or treaters!
satya's thoughts on the evening
it started raining so we ran back to the party for a little drumming
fortunately, we got home just in time to light our jack 'o lantern candle (sin pumpkin as it got moldy and grew green hair a few days before) and leave all the candy out for the halloween fairies....because they trade candy for a gift for those kids who don't eat candy.....
and in just a little while the candy was gone a new train and some tracks were left! thank you jack o lantern fairy!!!!
testing out the new tracks!
