Half term with Paperchase and Intu Lakeside

We were recently invited to a Halloween inspired event with Paperchase at Intu Lakeside. It was a craft session and the children had so much fun. They made some halloween bunting and both thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The bunting is beautiful and I was so proud of both of them. Archie did cutting and glueing and he really enjoyed himself. Which was nice because crafting is not always his first choice of activity.

We were sent home with some lovely bits from Paperchase and the children have had so much fun with some of the craft items already.

Archie particularly enjoyed the paints and had them out straight away. He did some painting while Sophia enjoyed sticking and using the glitter pens.

Intu Lakside have some fab halloween activities running up until the 30th of October for your little ones. Which I thought you would love to hear about and possibly take your little ones along.

Lakeside have so much fun planned for the rest of Ocotober! Here are some of the details:

  • On Saturday, 29 October there will be cloak making for tiny vampires and weenie witches.
  • Face Painting Skills teaching you to turn your little treasures into little horrors with face painting and prosthetics workshops.
  • Make a Halloween trick and treat candy cup with card, fabric and a little glittery magic.
  • Monster Movie Making – Children join the Fab Lab studio to star in their own movies at 11:30, 2:00 and 3:30 which will be paced on a spooky screening at 12:00, 2:30 and 4:00

There is also some fab activities being held on Sunday too which you can find out more information here.

They will also be holding the big trick or treat at Intu Lakside:

Intu lakeside understand that a lot of things can prevent you from taking your little monsters out on Halloween, so they made it easy for you. Grab one of our pumpkin buckets and enjoy sweet treats in a safe (and warm) environment with the big trick or treat!

Join them on Saturday 29th of October between 10am-12pm and 6pm-8pm for a day of fun, free trick or treating as your little ones are invited to find all 19 retailers and their devilish delights.

Please note, buckets will be issued on a first come, first serve basis so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Make this half term a spook-tacular one with Intu Lakeside by joining us in the Central atrium (Outside M&S, by the lifts), Level 1 between 10am-5pm. Visit us, if you dare…

    This sounds so much fun! I do love paper chase and I’m obsessed with crafting. I have so many craft resources but F isn’t really that into it and like Archie it wouldn’t be his first choice activity. But these bits look fab. Sounds like they had a really fun time! Amelia xx
