Last week was half term for us and I thought with it being Halloween we should try to get some seasonal fun activities in for the children. We always choose Frosts Garden Centres every year for our trip to see Father Christmas and when booking up for our annual visit I noticed that Frosts had some great Halloween events coming up, which I knew would be a massive hit with the kids.
Unfortunately things didn’t quite go as planned as our youngest Tristan who is three was up the night before being sick, so I had to stay at home whilst my ex husband took our oldest Jasmine to Frosts. Jasmine was very keen to report back on her experience to me and her dad made sure he got some lovely pictures.
The first event planned was the pumpkin scooping, which for me is great as it’s not something I enjoy doing at home with the children. I’m not a fan of the smell of pumpkin and always get lumbered doing all the scooping and cutting. This year the adults didn’t need to get involved, unless they wanted to, as Frosts Garden Centres had a great team on hand to assist the children and help them make their pumpkins. The children got to pick their very own pumpkins, they had all the tools they needed to make the perfect pumpkins and it involved no washing up from me (win, win). The children even got a nice cup of witches brew to enjoy after all their hard work. Jasmine’s pumpkin was excellent and I was very happy to notice it came with a battery tea light ready to go straight outside for all our neighbours to enjoy. The whole event was well worth the money and really made it an enjoyable experience for us all. We’ll certainly be coming back again next year, fingers crossed with two germ free children.
Jasmine who is six was especially excited for the Wizard school and from what she has reported back to me, it certainly didn’t disappoint. She was extremely keen to show me what she had learnt and the first thing she said when getting in the door when home, was that the professor was a real Wizard, who knew real magic. The Wizard school event is 35 minute experience, which is run by the professor of the wizard school, who will be looking to see if you have the right stuff to make it in the world of Witches and Wizards. Jasmine loved making her chocolate apple and really got involved with the entrainment and songs on offer. The Wizards school had been decorated beautifully and really captured the magic, which tied in beautifully with Halloween. Jasmine is very proud of her achievement and has been quick to tell anyone who will listen about her newly acquired certificate from the Wizards school. I really think Jasmine was the perfect age for this event and with her new found interest in Harry Potter, I am certain It would be something she would love to do again next year.
We are happy to report that Frosts Garden Centres once again went above and beyond to deliver fantastic events for all seasons. It really has become our first choice when looking for seasonal events throughout the year, which are reasonably priced, entertaining and authentic. We can’t wait to see you again soon for Santas Grotto.
