Zorro, Spiderman, Superman, a pretty pirate, penguin and pumpkin, witches, ghosts and more all shook their hips and did the Spooky Kooky at this year’s MVM Halloween Party.
Looking amazing in their costumes, the 30 children took part in over a half hour of strutting their stuff on the dance floor with Gina from Diddidance. Scarf, ribbon and hoop dancing, reaching to the sky, to the side, marching, wiggling their toes and bouncing around to the beat – all of which they absolutely loved.
There was some spooky designs on black card with chalk beforehand, but once Gina had them all dancing, there was no going back to more sedentary art.
While the kids were busy dancing, the parents were enjoying delicious homemade Italian biscuits by Cucina Mia (07881 517914 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
I couldn’t get enough of the Cucina Mia coconut crunchies!
The kids weren’t left out on the ‘treats’. Maria from Cucina Mia made ghost, witch, bat and pumpkin cookies for them. My daughter still asks for ghosts. I’ve tried to offer her other biscuits since and she says, “no, ghost!”
Luckily Diddidance burnt off so many calories, that the little goblins were also able to enjoy mini Halloween cupcakes by The Riff Raff Cake Company – one was even decorated as a mummy! Loved that one.
We tried to balance our ‘guilty pleasures’ with oranges in the goodie bags.
Hope everyone had as much fun as my family and I.
Big thanks to MVMs Joanna and Jyoti for all their help, as well as to Gina from Diddidance, Maria from Cucina Mia, and Mythili from The Riff Raff Cake Company.
The fun didn’t stop there…
On to Monday and our first ever MVM Halloween Meet-up in the Rose Garden at Paddington Recreation Ground.
We were so lucky to have professional photographer Russ McClintock there to photograph some of the little trick-or-treaters. If your child’s picture was taken, please get in touch with us and we’ll send you the details of a secure website he has set up with the images so you could see them. You can even purchase a print from him for £5.
Big thanks to all the MVMs who showed up on the day and to Russ.
…and if you enjoyed these events (or liked the sounds of them), don’t miss our Christmas Party on Sunday the 4th of December at St. Saviour’s School – more details coming soon!
