It was a hair-raising week! We spent time exploring the not-so-scary critters of the animal world, scratching in the leaves for creepy crawlies, exploring a dark cave, wading a pirate's creek, as well as inventing some of our own eerie creations in face paint. The fearsome faux "monster" was explored through crafts, costumes and more!
We were lucky (honored is too strong an acclamation) to have five visitors—guest presenters—stop by for a chat. (See above photo.)
It was a true Rogues' Gallery of not-so-monstrous monsters, pariahs, misfits and scallywags. Click each for their back stories:
