Jeepers, creepers! Gloucester Waterways Museum is planning a halloween extravaganza with spine-tingling activities to keep the kids entertained this half-term.
The Museum’s education team have let their imaginations run wild to plan a spooky (but not too scary) Halloween trail around the museum.
Crafty children of all ages will enjoy making witches’ hats, frogs, bat mobiles and scary spiders in our craft room throughout half-term.
