Tricks & Treats: A Halloween Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Knock, knock...c'mon in!  This Halloween at my house we'll be handing out bags of chips to the 175+ trick or treaters we usually get (you read that right!) but you, my dear teacher peep, get the GOOD STUFF ;-)

I'm so excited to participate in Under the Maple Tree's first ever Halloween Blog Hop and Giveaway hosted by my friend Mrs.Beattie's Classroom.
My post is all about how to turn popular Physical Education items into fun Halloween themed stations by using a little Gym "Hocus Pocus".

Allow me to explain in images:
Fly around the gym like a witch on a broomstick using a pool noodle.
Play "Jack O Lantern Dodgeball" with a squishy ball.
Put on some tunes and play musical hula hoops in "Trick or Treat Tango".
Catch "candy" (a.k.a. balls)  mid air in "Candy Crush" using a scoop.
Bounce a basketball until it turns into a rotten pumpkin in "Pumpkin Smash".

I hope at least one of those inspires you to try out something new these next two weeks with your students!  What Halloween Gym activities would you recommend to others?  Please share in the comments below.  I always love comments even more than Kit Kat bars.

After P.E., head back into the classroom and try out my Batty about Addition Halloween themed Math freebie.
Before you go, don't forget my Secret Word!  Winning a $25 TPT Gift Card would be sweeeeet :-)
