Creepy Crafts (Hawarden) – SOLD OUT!

October 31 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

halloween activities in the woods for kids

Woodland crafts and games for kids with a spooky theme. This Halloween we’re hosting a day of arts & crafts, games and fun team challenges to get kids in the mood for the evening to come. Can they solve the clues to mix the right ingredients for their own magic potions? Will your kids escape the Giant Spiders Web Challenge? Can they craft their own lantern ready for ‘trick or treating’ on Halloween night?  This day is perfect for the little witch or wizard in your life that’s always making new things.


There’s a range of activities on offer:

  • Create a variety of magic potions using natural ingredients from the forest.
  • Make your own colourful lantern from willow – to light up the dark!
  • Cook up your own ‘pumpkin face’ chocolate cake over the fire.
  • Go apple bobbing.
  • Craft a spooky tree spirit.
  • Make a bird feeder to hang in your garden.
  • Get stuck into tasty campfire cooking.

All activities are closely supervised by experienced Forest School leaders. This will be a full day of Halloween inspired activities for kids aged 6-12 years from 10am to 4pm.

As well as drinking up our tasty magic potions we’ll also be enjoying some hot campfire snacks such as popcorn and marshmallows. Children should bring their own packed lunch though.

Tickets are £37 per child and we’re offering discount places of £33 for each additional sibling. Open to children aged between 6 – 12 years.

Parents don’t stay with their children during this event – but there’s plenty to see at Hawarden Estate Farm Shop if you want to combine dropping off your child with making a visit for yourself or little ones. Our Forest School activity days are all supervised by trained and experienced staff… that’s us. If your child has special needs that you feel would require a parent or guardian to stay with them for the day though, we would advise getting in touch with us in advance of making a booking and we’ll see what we can arrange. We like to be as inclusive as we can.

To get your Tickets – scroll to the bottom of this page.

About the Venue

Hawarden Estate Farm Shop is an award-winning purveyor of local produce surrounded by 25 acres of its own fields, orchards and woodlands. Much of their meat, fruit and veg is reared and grown on the estate and is not only for sale in the excellent Farm Shop but also served up in their tasty cafe. The estate also plays host to the Good Life Experience annual festival and hosts an exciting programme of events throughout the year. “Provenance is key to us because we not only believe in food that tastes great but that is also local, sustainable and is good for our community, the environment and our customer’s health.”

The Woodland Classroom basecamp is set within the estate’s beautiful woods where in spring you can find snowdrops and bluebells, in summer count the bird species and in autumn identify the bugs rooting around under the leaf litter.

Hawarden Estate Farm Shop is easily accessible from the A55 North Wales Expressway. Chester City Centre is only 15 minutes drive away. Central Wrexham is just 20 mins drive away. The venue postcode is CH5 3FB.
