Our school tradition diverts away from the Trick or Treat version (originally a trade for food in exchange for song or dance) as an opportunity to dress up, and have a wonderfully fun parade around town with stops at our local merchants to thank them for their support of the community and our school. To that end, we prepare small gifts and enjoy the look of surprise on the faces of the merchants when the children offer up our small token of appreciation with no expectation of candy in return
Children naturally want to pick flowers. I felt strongly that if children knew the function of flowers, they might be more concerned about letting the flower live its natural life in order to fulfill its function. That is how "Flowers Want to Make Seeds" came into being.
