I know we had you thinking about Christmas last week with our ‘early bird’ offer (which you can certainly still take advantage of!), but we can’t forget the fun we can have as Hallowe’en quickly approaches.
London has so much to offer for the kids, so we thought we would share some activities that sound like fun and we know you would enjoy.. just remember, fancy dress is always a good thing no matter where you end up this Hallowe’en 🙂
Follow the yellow brick road all the way to Battersea Park Children’s Zoo – I’m a fan either way, but from the 25th October through to the 31st, there are some great things going on at the Zoo (along with seeing the animals), including Pumpkin Trail, Slithery Snake Day and a Hallowe’en fun day complete with scary story time and spooky face painting! Have a read through here.
Dorothy beware! If your little one is more interested in becoming a witch or a wizard, look no further.
From the 25th October to the 1st November, you can sign up for a Hallowe’en storytelling experience on the London Eye. Cast spells and discover ghostly stories as apart of your initiation into the Witch Academy! You can read all through all of the details here.
Chelsea Library is also putting on a Hallowe’en themed event for your creative little monster. Their stop motion animation event that promises to be a fun day out for the older children.
On Tuesday 28 October, children 8+ can join the Hooray Art animation studio and shoot their very own scary movie set in a haunted library. They will design and make an imaginary cast of characters using the art of stop motion animation complete with a premiere at the end of the workshop!
But let’s be serious, the best bit about Hallowe’en pumpkin carving (while eating sweets, of course!), so get your creative hat on, grab your pumpkin (go right to the pumpkin patch!) and be sure to check out the following events.
Bluebird Halloween Pumpkin Carving for Kids
Head over to the Bluebird on Thursday 30th October for their Spook-tacular pumpkin carving event – an ideal afternoon for the little ones. Tools, a pumpkin as well as some cookies and hot chocolate will be provided so be sure to get in touch for your ticket.

Morden Hall Park Hallowe’en Spook-tacular event

Whatever you end up doing with your family this half term, have fun and take some great photographs! Here are some (vintage) Hallowe’en shots of the Boggio team to give you a bit of a Wednesday giggle.. enjoy!!
