It’s Back at the Carnival at GPS’ Pumpkin Patch Party

One of the events I look forward to in my daughter’s school is their Pumpkin Patch (Halloween) Party. Unlike other establishments with spooky decors, GPS does it differently, sans the scary-looking decorations. pumpkin-patch-11For this year, they decided to go for carnival-themed party. The school was also set up in a way that will give you carnival feels. pumpkin-patch-8pumpkin-patch-9The students were dressed up in their wackiest, most creative carnival costumes. pumpkin-patch-1pumpkin-patch-4Games were also part of the program and all games are something you usually play in the carnival. They got ring toss, pumpkin-patch-2Fish pond game, pumpkin-patch-3Can knockdown, pumpkin-patch-12and shooting game, although they used balls on this one. pumpkin-patch-5After the games, the kids went around the Kid Zone for trick or treat. Several establishments participated and were generous enough to provide treats for the kids. pumpkin-patch-6Thereafter, we head back to the school for refreshments. CDO was also among their sponsors; hence the overflow of hotdogs. Other treats include popcorn, cupcakes, candies, and chocolates. Some of the kids didn’t move a muscle and stayed on the buffet area. pumpkin-patch-7The kids were also given lootbags, courtesy of some sponsors and generous parents. We were asked to provide something for the kids’ lootbags, although this time, the teachers encouraged us to give something more educational and useful, and preferably no sweets. I wasn’t able to take a picture of the lootbag because my daughter was so excited in opening it. Nonetheless, some of the things she got are Play-Doh, crayons, workbooks, pencils, puzzles, and notebooks, which she all loved. pumpkin-patch-10Too bad, it’s my daughter’s last year in GPS. Good thing my youngest is attending the same school next year and I can’t wait to see what GPS will cook up.

    When my son was in preschool years, no scary costumes too. We also contribute for the loot bags. 🙂

    I love the theme. I’m not into Halloween celebrations myself but if halloween parties are as wholesome and awesome as this one, who wouldn’t want to attend? Looks fun!

    This is a nice idea for halloween – no scary costumes. some kids kasi doesnt want to participate because they’re afraid.

    Nice take for halloween. What I love lang tlga sa celebration na to are the cute costumes and the treats. Other than that, I personally think na it cultivate fear sa kids.

    Looks like a lot of fun. I don’t think essential naman talaga for Halloween celebrations to be scary, just as long as may element of fun is what counts 🙂

    Ang cute ng theme! I’d rather be attending parties with themes like this on a Halloween rather than the spooky ones. Bukod sa matatakutin kasi ako, eh baka magka-nightmare din naman ang bagets ko kung puro scary things ang nakapaligid sa kanya during the event. Hehe

    Not used to halloween parties but I love attending one if invited. It is refreshing to see cute kids wearing wholesome customes instead of scary ones. Those parties will.definitely create an impact on our kids and they will remember it that once or twice, they were dressed like a princess or queen one halloween party.

    Nice party and lots of activities. These types of events which are kid-friendly are very recommendable kasi kaunti nalang ang play areas where they can really roam around.

    Kids nowadays are so blessed! Imagine there a lot of fun activities for them. Nung bata ako parang ang konti ng pwedeng gawin at puntahan. And halloween parties are becoming more and more popular. 🙂
