The BEST Halloween activity!

We had a BLAST this morning! DeMonye's Greenhouse is providing fun-packed time for kids.

We started out by going through a "Haunted" house. It was a little on the scary side for Mia- she wouldn't go through at first, and when she finally did, she had to plug her ears to get to the end. But the twins were young enough not to know what some of the scary stuff was, and enjoyed petting the spiders and blow-up toys.

It takes about ten minutes to go through- just packed with Halloween stuff. There are some pretty scary masks and characters, but nothing startling and not full of gore.

At the end of the haunted house, there is a pumpkin patch where they each got to choose a pumpkin.

Next it was time to make a witch hand out of popcorn and candy corns

They got juice boxes, popcorn bags, and treat bags with little toys and bags of candy and an activity sheet...

Then they chose a gourd and some Indian corn

And planted some flowers!

And THEN it was game time!

Bean bag toss

Kid basketball

Umm- the Toss the ping pong ball into the eyeball man and knock him over on purpose and get put in time out game...

Digging for bones

You don't even have to dress warmly- it's about 75 degrees in there!

The staff there is SO friendly- we couldn't have had more fun. They let us stay as long as we liked and go through the maze as many times as we wanted. I guess they didn't have any appointments after us- we were there for two hours.

DeMonye's Greenhouse!! It's on 2500 Airport Drive in Columbus- right off the freeway by Gahanna. The activity is by appointment only, but it's easy to get one- (614) 252-6046. $5 per kid and they will be open until Halloween! I had no idea it was going to be such an involved, well-planned, kid-friendly activity- so glad we found out about it. :)

This looks like so much fun. I can't believe how big the girls are getting. They were so small when I first started reading your blog.
