Half term is upon us once more and it couldn’t fall at a better time because Halloween takes place during the same week. This is a fun time for all the family and a chance for even the grownups to play a bit of dress up with the children. Having the week off gives you the time to prepare the costumes and get into the Halloween spirit with themed play, activities and outings. We’ve found some fun Halloween activities that all the family will enjoy; here are some of our favourites.
From Monday 27th October to Friday 31st Coalport China Museum is holding a Spooky Halloween themed family workshop. There are different activities for the children to try out; depending on the day you decide to pop in. On Monday they will be able to decorate a mug with on-glaze paints and for the rest of the week the children can model something spooky with clay – perhaps a bat, a spider (perhaps based on Woolly) or something from their own imagination. Other activities include painting a china flower, a magnet or take part in the paper crafts.
Times – 11am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm. Paper crafts included in admission fee, ceramic activities cost up to £4 per item and £3 for the delivery of the final piece.
On Thursday 30th October the Birmingham Botanical Gardens are holding the Halloween Funday. There will be plenty of things to do and see at the gardens including Halloween based activities such as spooky storytellers, stilt walkers and live animals.
Times – 11am-3pm. Children under 16 get in for free, but some of the activities may have a small charge.
Horrible Histories are taking over the Black Country Loving Museum from Saturday 25 October to Sunday 2 November. Take the Horrible Histories Gore and Grime themed trail around the village and discover all sorts of revolting props such as rats and demon beetles. This will be a great day out for primary school children, especially if they’re already a fan of the hit children’s TV show.
Times 10am-5pm. Family tickets are available starting from £32 for 1 adult and up to 3 children. Children aged 4 and under get in for free. If you book online you can save 10%.
There are plenty of spooky offerings up and down the UK. Check your local What’s On websites and discover a hidden treasure.
