Halloween Activities

Wednesday, October 31st 2018

There was another Halloween themed activity held today.   The children made spiders, webs and ghosts to complete a spooky mobile!

There was a lot of hard work needed to complete each activity.  Lots of concentration was needed, along with a fair bit of glue.

Making a ghost!

Sometimes some adult help was needed.

Once the ghost was made it needed to be checked.  This ghost looked a rather unhappy one, although the one lying down had a smile.

The final part was making the spider before the mobile was completed

Assembling the mobile

I am rather pleased that these spiders don't live in the Field Centre!


At the end of the session the children left the Field Centre with their ghosts and spiders and webs.  They also had painted pictures and a ghost puppet.

A huge thank you to the volunteer who prepared everything so it was just to put out on the table and to those volunteers who helped decorate the room, help with the activities and then tidy up.
