I’m a NickJr Pumpkin party host!

The goody bags are packed. The activities are ready, the table is laid. The children are bouncing off the walls with excitement πŸ˜‰

In just over an hour, our guests will arrive for our Nick Jr Pumpkin party. We’ve got some great activities ready and waiting from Frankenstein cupcakes (green of course) to making (paper based completely non messy) pumpkin lanterns and even sticking the wart on Wallykazam. If you’re looking for ideas for any Halloween or autumnal themed parties you’ve got coming up, I highly recommend hanging out on twitter from 5 pm today, as there will be plenty of inspiration to share over on the UKMumsTV twitter feed – use the #NickJrPumpkinParty hashtag to join in. More details over on the UKMums.TV site here.

There are a number of other bloggers taking part in the party, and they will be sharing pics of their activities too, and there are lots of giveaways happening as well. What’s more, if you stash the kids in front of NickJr*, they can be watching Halloween premiere episodes all week while you tweet to your hearts content.

(*please use pre-school TV responsibly.)

Dora and Friends is at 4.30pm (GMT – you did put your clocks back yesterday, right?) today, with a Peppa Pig Nick Jr Exclusive Halloween special at 5.30, and we’ll be sure to be watching. Then you’ve got Paw Patrol 5.30pm tomorrow, Zack and Quack 5.30 Wednesday, Lily’s Driftwood Bay on Thursday and Wallykazam! on Friday. A full week of spooky pre-school entertainment.

And if all that isn’t enough to get you into the party mood, I have a prize bundle to give away right here. Mandatory entry is a comment on this blogpost, and then there are optional extras to bump up your chances of winning. What are you waiting for? Get stuck in via the rafflecopter widget below.
