About the event
We will start by taking a walk around Omved gardens collecting sticks, branches, wildflower seed heads and autumn leaves to make our own Halloween spooky monsters to hang from the trees.
There will be a selection of dried cones and other natural objects on the nature table to choose from as well as a selection of crafting items.
Then we will have a brainstorm about what kind of halloween object we want to make based on all the natural materials in front of us, before assembling our very own spooky creature tree hanging.
The children will take home their handmade creations or they can leave them hanging on the trees at OmVed.
The workshop is aimed at kids between 6 and 12. Kids should come accompanied by an adult.
