Here’s a riddle: What makes goblins and dentists both frightened and gleeful? The Answer?…. Yep that’s right you guessed it, its Halloween!!!!
Of course the LEAP Ambassadors and Pre-Law Cohort would come together to help the local community of Huntsville at the annual Scare on the Square event. Scare on the Square is an event sponsored by the City of Huntsville (by Huntsville Main Street) where local business, community groups, and even high school and college students come together to throw a safe but frightful and fun event for local children.
The LEAP Ambassadors and the Pre-Law Cohort decided to provide two games for the children. The first, is one that we named “Place the Bow on Mr. Bones”! This game gave children the opportunity to earn candy by correctly placing the bow on our honorary LEAP Ambassador member, Mr. Bones, while blindfolded.
The best part of the game is that before the children can be allowed to properly find Mr. Bones they must first be spun around five times; this was hilarious!
Our second game a bowling game with our googly-eyed bowling pins!
Surprisingly the bowling pins scared a lot of the children; especially when they eyes began to pop off of the pins from the beating they were receiving! The kids, however, were willing to overlook these eyes for a scoop of precious candy!
Austin of course came dressed for the affair as a farmer! What we all didn’t expect was for him to have a twin there as well!
As the Scare on the Square came to an end we were all very happy that we could put some smiles on children’s faces.
In thinking of this we were all reminded of the joy that the LEAP Team can bring to people of all ages in the Huntsville Community.
Aat the same time we were also reminded of the reason why too much candy can be a bad thing. However there are some things that we can never outgrow!
