  Happy Halloween to all my lovely bloggy friends.  I hope you all had as much fun as we've had ;-)    We've had such a good day and now have enough chocolate to last us until next Halloween.

  We've made a set of story cards before (here) and we still play with them every now and again so I thought we could make a Halloween set of cards so we could tell some spooky Halloween stories this week. Last time we made our story cards using a mix of some cut up birthday cards and some rather pathetic looking drawings but today I thought we could do some colouring as well so I printed out some Halloween colouring pictures from here.  (All you need to do is select Halloween, the number of cards you want and select the black and white version so you can colour them in yourselves.) We … [Read more...]
