Children at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster had a thrilling Halloween fun-packed week of activities and games as well as a frighteningly cool mini-disco on Thursday 29th October.
Celebrating Halloween, a little differently this year due to covid restrictions, the children took part in activities as part of their class bubbles throughout the week and were party dress ready in their scariest fancy-dress costumes for their spooky disco.
Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter, commented: “The children had a fabulous time playing witches ring toss, spooky skittles, spaghetti, slime as well as pumpkin messy-play, eyeball pong and making their witches hat biscuits. They also completed a whole range of craft activities which included scary pumpkins and spooky ghosts!”
The week built-up to a mini disco and games of pass the parcel and musical statues before they tucked into a party lunch, consisting of all the foods they enjoy, and of course a few treats along the way.
Added Gaynor: “Whilst this is all fun, fun, fun, we still have to ensure the children are learning too!
“Finessing both fine and gross motor skills through games, as well as improving balance and co-ordination, they discussed colours and texture during our craft activities, helping with their communication and language learning and listening skills, all key learning activities throughout the day.
“The whole Halloween event week helps to promote social skills, interacting with others' and of course building relationships and friendships!”
The rooms throughout the nursery were decorated with the children's art, bouncing bats, pumpkins and ghosts all adorned the walls. With some thirty-five children ranging in ages from between 2-4 years, lots of Halloween fun was had by all.
