A few months ago, I picked up some Halloween window gel decals at our local Big Lots. They were cheap, about $1 a package. I figured I’d tuck them away for a day when we need a little extra entertainment to make it through. Yesterday was one of those days! No matter what I did or did not do, AJ had a melt down over it. Since Halloween is just a few weeks away, I figured it would be a perfect time to dig out the window decals. AJ was very excited when I got the package out.
Owl is one of the words that he can say, and we’ve been reading Halloween books with ghosts (at first he was afraid until I told him that ghosts are just little boys with blankies over their heads) and bats.
I honestly had no idea this was going to be a sensory experience. The decals are very sticky and stretchy. It turns out that AJ doesn’t like the feel of them! So, it was kind of a bust. I had intended for him to put them on the window. But, he wanted me to do it. He does keep pointing and saying “owl” but he won’t touch them. I keep telling him he can take them off and put them back on. No go. Oh well!
