Our Halloween fun started when Squiggle decided to decorate our house of her own accord. This included a huge display of Halloween drawings.
Heartwood forest held a special lantern woodland walk so we decided to pop along for an evening adventure. It was incredibly packed and they clearly had not expected anywhere near that many people so the organisation of it was not what we had hoped. However this still managed to be a HUGE hit with Squiggle, who seemed to simply love the novelty of it all! www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/visiting-woods/wood/5622/heartwood-forest/
The next day we went to a local church who were holding a Light Party (with funfair theme!) This was a gentle and positive alternative celebration.
At home we did carving the pumpkin which was a wonderful sensory activity as she scooped the pulp and seeds out by hand. We also made a Halloween pepper (which she ate very quickly) and some Halloween ice shapes that she enjoyed playing with and tasting.
Squiggle was also delighted to see that Willows Farm still had signs up of Halloween today!
