There will be ghostly goings-on and creepy crafts galore at the Museum of Cannock Chase over the half-term school break.
The museum in Valley Road, Hednesford, has lined up lots of art-and-craft workshops to help keep children entertained in the run-up to Halloween.
On Monday 25th October, between noon and 3pm, children of all ages and their families will be making horrible Halloween hand puppets. This is a drop-in workshop, costing just £1 per child, and there is no need to book.
The museum is holding a Halloween Spooktacular on Wednesday 27th October. Children will be making lots of decorations for the perfect Halloween party and there will be fun and games with the Council’s Play Rangers, including apple bobbing and face painting. Children can even be transformed into a mummy. There is no need to book and the Spooktacular costs just £1 per child.
The museum is also running two workshops that have to be booked in advance. On Tuesday 26th October young people will be making wicked witch puppets, ghostly wind socks and Jack O’Lantern pouches in the Ghostly Goings On workshops.
On Thursday 28th October, the museum holds a Creepy Crafts & Spooky Snacks event, when children will be creating creepy spiders and paper plate pumpkins as well as enjoying some fiendish food, including dead man’s finger sandwiches and worms in dirt.
These two workshops cost £3 per child and must be booked in advance. They are for children between five and 11 and take place between 10am and noon, and 1pm to 3pm. Call the museum on 01543 877666 for a booking form.
