We had a very untraditional Halloween party here today.
Not only was it run by an Australian (to the amazement of many japanese people Halloween is t an Australian custom) but it was held in November.
Anyway, we had 9 neighbourhood kids from 3 years old to 11 years old here for games and crafts and jack o lantern carving culminating in walking to each of their homes to trick or treat.
The kids all had a ball and got along really well, the boys made swords out of calendar paper and chased each other around while waiting to carve their pumpkins while the girls painstakingly decorated Halloween shaped cookies.
Everyone played bingo and mummy wrapping and "don't eat frank!" Which was a new game for me this year and was a blast.
I was having too much fun watching and organizing and helping the littlest ones do their craft and use the loo (memories!) that I took four photos all afternoon.
And I didn't purposely get the back of heads to save their privacy or anything- I was just that bad at taking pictures today.
Oh well, there's always next year!!
Don't eat frank!
