Daily Activities:   

22, 24 & 25 October - Lantern Luminaries – Family friendly luminaries are the perfect way to brighten up your front door or windows. Design a colourful lantern using bright permanent markers and paper, then decorate with googly eyes and other embellishments. Finally transform your lantern art piece into a luminary by placing it over a battery tea light.

26 & 27 October - Mischievous Masks – Use your imagination with bright colourful paints and fabric to make your own mask. What will you make? A naughty goblin? A trickster cat? Or perhaps something else? Take your masterpiece home to wear in time for trick or treating.

28 & 29 October - Light Up Enchanted Jars – Make an enchanted decorative jar full of green moss and magic sparkle dust. Draw and cut out silhouette fairies or goblins to live in the jar, don’t hold back with the embellishments, generously scatter glitter, buttons and sequins all over, you could even fashion beautiful flowers using tissue paper and tie them on with some yarn. For a magic touch light up your jar with a battery tealight.
