Halloween is to take on a different guise this year but that won’t stop us from being creative in the lead up to the 31st of October. After all, we have learned and excelled at becoming creative “pivoters” during these last few months. Although disappointing that we can’t take our wee ones guising this weekend, we can still make Halloween fun for all our wee monsters. Whether you are getting dressed up and douking for apples in the garden at home or indeed visiting The Patch, we can make sure it’s filled with fun and games and create lots of happily haunting memories.
If you’re looking for something creative to do, especially on one of those all too regular wet afternoons, we have you covered! We have teamed up with some very talented creatives to pull together a bundle of activities to keep your wee ones from climbing the walls.
The wonderful illustrator Ruth Craddock, A Sketchy Story, has created a fabulous spooky illustration for children to colour in and display in their windows. Ruth has also created a remarkable drawing, which is ideal for teaching children how to grow pumpkins. Something we hope lots of people will give a go next year.
The inspirational and very talented Kirsty from My Happy Journal, has also kindly shared some of her brilliant Halloween activity sheets which will inspire and help us get creative over the next few days.
We hope you enjoy them and we would love to see your creations so why not post them on social media and tag us to let us see?
