Nothing was scarier than the teacher's strike in October of 2019...except remote learning in October of 2020! We have missed the spooky season in library twice! But not in 2021...this year, it's going to be all treat and no trick!
Yes, yes, yes, we WILL be having a Haunted House Museum in the library again this year! But we need your participation to make it happen!
How-to: Take a cardboard box and cut holes in it for windows. Paint or otherwise cover the box with a seasonal color like orange, black, green or purple. Decorate the outside of your house with ghosts, trick-or-treaters, rotting trees…you don’t have to make it a house. It can be a haunted apartment building, or a haunted theater, or a haunted sports event, or a haunted library, or a haunted beauty salon, or a haunted store, or…whatever idea you have! Use your imagination!
If you don’t celebrate Halloween, that’s fine! You can still participate. We welcome fall houses and autumn scenes as well.
- No blood or gore, dismembered parts or headless dolls, sorry! We are celebrating imagination and folklore, not horror.
- Please do not attach any real food to your creation. Cockroaches are even scarier than ghosts.
- Please do not include or attach anything valuable to your creation.
- Yes, you can work with a friend or friends or family...just please stay within your pods and stay COVID-safe!
- You can light it inside with a flashlight or battery-operated lights!
- Please ask for a grown-up’s help for cutting out windows or when using new or messy craft materials.
- This is not an assignment for a grade. This is for FUN and open to all grade levels!
- Note: Middle schoolers (6 -8) get up to five extra credit points as needed/earned, so this is your chance to raise your library grade! Make it a great one!
- Remember to put the name and room number of all creators clearly on your creation.
Houses will be accepted in the library before or right after morning announcements starting on Monday, October 25, though Friday, October 29 and students should pick up houses at the end of the day on that Friday before Halloween for a treat. Sorry, the library cannot be responsible for houses left in November.
Can't wait to see the children's
