Children hollow out pumpkins to make scary faces - and soup!

CHILDREN at The Folly Nursery, in Dalwood, have been enjoying a week of spooky fun, celebrating autumn and Halloween.

As part of their forest schools’ activities the youngsters investigated the fallen leaves and seeds and made autumn crowns and conker bracelets, learning how to use a drill in the process.

Later they turned their attention to Halloween activities, hollowing out pumpkins and making soup from the flesh to eat at lunch.

The children chose how they wished their scary pumpkins to look before the staff helped them to carve out the faces.

Nursery manager Helen Freeman said: “It was a fabulous way to spend a chilly autumn day and made us forget about the winter sky outside as we prepared for Halloween.”
