October:  Halloween Half term at Baby Bird Café, Oswestry

Kicking through fallen leaves, cosying up with a good afternoon film, or selecting the ‘perfect’ pumpkin for carving…….as well known by my family and friends – I love most seasonal celebrations (any excuse for a good party!!) and this month we have planned a PACKED calendar of fab things to do with your little ones now the weather is changeable and Halloween is on the horizon!!

This October we’re doing breakfast craft club every morning of the half-term holidays, plus a FREE, fun Halloweeny-themed storytime on Friday 30th at 11.00am!

We’re also hosting the Pyjama Drama Halloween Special upstairs on Friday 30th – the upstairs room will be decorated too, ready for some Halloween fun

For mummies and daddies not wishing to go ‘Trick or Treating’ at night we’re also hosting a fun-packed day on Halloween (Saturday 31st) itself.  From 9.00-10.00am we’ll be running our Breakfast Craft Club, making Spooky Spiders (£1.50 per child), then from 10.00am-2.00pm little customers in fancy dress can win themselves a ‘treat’, have some fun and play some Halloween games ALL FOR FREE….

And talking of fancy dress, I’ve searched far and wide for 3 of the simplest, properly ‘homemade’ Halloween costumes……feast your eyes on these uber-cute ideas!

   MERMAID SKIRT (FELT SCALES GLUED OVER AN OLD SKIRT WITH ADDED CARDBOARD TAIL)

SIMPLE LADYBIRDS (WOULD WORK WELL WITH CARDBOARD)

AMAZING POP-BOTTLE ROCKET PACK!

Finally, also making a welcome return to Baby Bird Café this month are our salt-crusted, oven-baked jacket spuds (my weakness!), our‘Monster and Me’ cupcake pairs and our decadent (YUMTASTIC!) Halloween hot chocolate…..so just even more reasons to celebrate October and Halloween at Baby Bird Café! See you soon!
