This is our final dayout before the big night of parties and trick and or treat. As I’ve said before I really love all the fun that Halloween brings and we always have a trip to Morden Hall in Surrey in the lead up to get us in the mood.
You all know that National Trust activities are always a favourite with me as there is always a mixture of exploring the great outdoors with plenty of fun things to make and do.
Today we set off armed with the pumpkins we picked the other day ready to see what was in store for us today.
There were plenty of tables set up with buckets of utensils to help you carve out your masterpieces. It’s always great fun to do and saves all the mess at home!
Next up we made our way to all the crafts that had been set up. Number four had his eye on making a spider headpiece and they all took a turn at making some toliet roll mummies. There was also a beautiful hanging paper pumpkin but number five got restless so we had to move on.
They were all a little peckish so we picked up a pulled pork burger from the Swine ‘n’ Dine stall that was there along with a few other stalls selling lots of yummy food. The food was outstanding and they even managed to sort something sutiable for my little allergy boy.
We came to the end of the trail which was rounded off wonderfully with a creepy bug hut. Mine alway love digging around in the dirt to see what minibeasts they can capture and have a good look at. Number four was a little disappointment he could take the worm home that he had found.
We had one last look around at the watermill and picked out our favourite scarecrow, all of which were fantastic. Number five took a particular liking to one!
