Description

Halloween is just round the corner and we'll be having a magical morning to celebrate ! Come and join in the fun fusion of Forest School, outdoor learning and nature play. We start by reading 'Room on the Broom' then track animal footprints to find frog, cat, dog and bird, hidden in the lovely grounds. Will we find a trick or a treat at the end of our hunt ? We will be decorating pumpkins with natural finds and practising using a hand drill by drilling patterns into turnips and swedes. Also at our activity stations we will be weaving woolly webs onto branches and making bird feeder apple spiders, creating magic wands ( have a go at whittling ) and making brooms using garden tools . Children can also have a go at hammering golf tees into pumpkins ( great for fine motor skills) . Have a go at spooky pumpkin bowling and do you dare go into the bat cave ?

Cook up some stinky spells and smelly potions in the cauldron in the mud kitchen and borrow the exploring equipment and see what creepy critters you can find .

It's Malloween at the campfire too- roast ghost marshmallows !- yum yum!
