Halloween ‘Character Treats’ – an online workshop for children and an adult family member

Date: Thursday, October 29, 2020
Time: 3:30 – 4:30 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

Halloween is a fun time when we use our creativity to transform ourselves and become something or someone else. In this Halloween-themed activity, children and their parents will identify their individual ‘character treats’. They will explore how their individual characteristics connect to those around them and why that can be a real treat! Participants will learn to face four Halloween ghosts: Denialin, Doubty, Worry-Anne and Fearan. This social and emotional learning activity is aimed at children 6 to 10 years of age. For this activity, please have paper, markers, crayons, coloured pencils and scissors.

Recommended for children 6 to 10 years and an adult family member.
