Fang-tastic halloween fun for the family at museum

SPOOKY treats were in store for those visiting Singleton over the half-term week with Halloween-themed fun.


Activities included the traditional fun of pumpkin carving, face painting and apple bobbing but there were also other crafty things to do.


Children had the chance to create a ‘floating ghost’, make a monster ring, create a paper pumpkin, make a string mummy and make a clay leaf dish.


Lisa Smith attended with her three children, Sammy, aged eight, Brian, six and three-year-old Natasha, from Chichester.


She said: “We often come here to get the kids outside and playing but also learning as well. There is always so much to do.”


There were also games and stories with playing a game of pumpkin noughts and crosses and a game of conkers and pumpkin hunts.


Marketing manager Jen Rudd said: “Hundreds of families are enjoying the autumn sunshine at the Weald & Downland Living Museum this half-term.


“Our family-friendly halloween craft activities, face painting and pumpkin trail are proving very popular, and visitors love taking a wagon ride pulled by our shire horses.”


Graham Silcocks and his wife Maryann had taken their grandchildren, five-year-old Beth and eight-year-old Thomas, for the day.


He said: “We only live in Southampton but we’ve never been to the museum before.


“It’s been a lovely day and there has been plenty to do for the children to keep them quiet and then take home bits they’ve made too.”
