With little witches and wizards brewing spells in their cauldrons, and mini monsters getting ready for trick or treating, we thought we’d share a sweet activity to keep them busy!

Here’s a super-easy activity to do at home. Here’s how to make some delicious treats!

Strawberry Ghosts

Easy chocolate dipped strawberry ghosts for halloween

What you’ll need…
– 400g Strawberries
– 80g White chocolate broken into pieces
– Black Decorating Icing Tube

Melt your white chocolate by popping it into a heatproof bowl on top of a saucepan of boiling water, once the chocolate starts to melt, turn the heat down and give the chocolate a stir.

Take the bowl off the heat once the chocolate has melted, and watch little hands don’t touch the bowl.

Dip each strawberries into the melted chocolate and place onto a plate or tray. Pop them into a fridge for 30 minutes, then decorate with little mouths and eyes!



The Halloween Express…
We hope to see you for our Halloween Event between 21st – 31st October, you can still buy tickets here, but be quick, they’ll be gone soon!

Journey into our enchanted woodland on the Halloween Express. Encounter our wicked witches and their friends at scare school and receive a treat! Then find our miniature fairies and elves in their Halloween homes. Make your own spell bag. And be entertained by the mischievous William the Magician!
