The children are enjoying the run up to Halloween with some spooky crafts

The pretoddlers enjoyed a walk around the garden, exploring and collecting autumn leaves. We felt the textures and looked at the beautiful colours, and we also discovered that autumn leaves are great for tickling our friends with!

We have also been exploring paint by making hand and fruit prints for Halloween. The paint felt cold and slimy on our hands but we loved making spooky shapes and patterns on our paper.
