Spooky Goings On

Friday, October 31st 2014

Sixteen children and their parents enjoyed a morning of spooky nature themed activities to celebrate Halloween. The morning started off by playing Bat and Moth, a favourite on our educational visits where children learn about how bats use echolocation to hunt.

Once back inside several activities were on offer including pumpkin carving, where some very scary faces were designed.

Everyone enjoyed the broomstick making sessions, where they learned the traditional methods for creating a witch’s broom.

Other activities on offer were making origami bats, kites and spiders. Some very creative designs emerged as the morning progressed. Spiders and other invertebrates were also collected and magnified onto the projector screen for everyone to see up close.

We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and wish you a very spooky Halloween!
