“Mwah – ha -ha- ha” – a little Halloween themed fun for half term!  Three fun packed days, 34 children aged 9-12 years, imagination, creativity, laughter and lunch!

With help from designers and machinists at Makers HQ children made their own unique Halloween costumes, created and designed by themselves from recycled materials.  Bat mummies, witches, witch brides, assassins, spiders and more. Scary, imaginative and utterly fabulous!

So, if you have the costume….then you need the make up!  A Halloween make up day supported by The National Beauty College.  Zombies and zombie pirates was the theme. Learning how to create 3D effects, glitter paint and sponges, a  room full of very scary monsters soon happened. With the addition of wounds, tattoos and scars to complete the effect.

Then to a day of exploring the local outdoors – helping children see the exciting world just on their doorstep.  Finding nature’s treasures on the seashore, bug hunting, den building, games and cooking lunch on an open fire. Encouraging curiosity and interest in the world around us – with so much to explore.

Children made new friends, tried new things, transformed themselves, supported each other, turned their imagination into reality, laughed,  and were so proud of their accomplishments.

All made possible with help from partner organisations – Makers HQ, The National Beauty College and Flint and Steel Forest School and support from Millfields Trust.

Inspiration in action!
