Inspired by how popular Meg’s kid-friendly <a href=”http://missmegsstorytime.com/make-pirate-name/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”><em>Pirate Name List</em></a> was at our library, I created a kid-friendly list for Halloween. I plan on having a handout (with our library’s name on the bottom) for kids to take with them if they’d like.
Here’s the larger-scale display that’s on our dry erase board:

We’ve decided to have <em>ghosts</em> as the theme for October, and we’ve been busy putting together lots of supernatural fun for the kids. I really look forward to sharing all of the things that we’ve been up to, but it will take a few more days to get everything up and photographed. Until then, I wanted to share my <em>Spooky Name Sheet</em> with y’all to use if you’d like. Click on the image below for a pdf that you can download:

<strong>Update:</strong> Whenever I can, I now try and avoid doing holiday themes like this one. This is usually fine, but it becomes more difficult during the winter holidays since my Director and I share different views about holidays in public libraries, and she is passionate about Christmas. And that’s okay. I do what I can, and that’s all that you can do sometimes.
