Halloween Antics at My Mother’s House
Part of our year ‘round Let’s Grow Together series.
What We Do
We make sure the hurting-est pains have a chance to heal, salved by laughter and friends.
We stage a Make-Your-Own Costume Party with toddlers and their older brothers and sisters whose families are rebuilding after Mom’s incarceration.
We play. We Improvise on-the-spot costuming, face painting, pumpkin painting, hair-do, make-up, Chocolate Witch’s Web, home-made pumpkin cookies, milk and fruit juices, and plenty of zany teens (and a few zanier adults) to chase around the private yard behind My Mother’s House, a home for children while mom is in jail.
How You Can Help
Come in your own costume, or make one in our outdoor dressing room for yourself and a few wide-eyed children.
We’ll have the basics (stapler, glue sticks, string, ribbon, duct tape, scissors, crepe paper, colored marking pens, face make-up, old fake fur, lace curtains, wigs, animal noses and masks, belts and suspenders, klutzy costume jewelry, over-sized spiders, of course).
Bring homemade pumpkin cookies and a tub of icing for the little ones to finish ‘em off.
Chip in cash for food and props.
