Fun Halloween activities for Poole youngsters at Upton Country Park
11:00am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
A HOST OF fun Halloween-themed activities have been taking place across Dorset during the half-term school holidays.
Upton Country Park held an owl hat-making workshop for children to create their accessory, while learning more about birds and wildlife.
It was organised in conjunction with the park and the RSPB, to encourage young people to take an interest in the outdoors.
Sarah-Jane Buckle, South East Dorset people engagement officer, said: “I came up with the idea of the owl hat as it is in keeping with the Halloween theme, and it also incorporates wildlife.
“All of the materials came from Dorset Scrapstore, so they are all recycled, and we had more than 40 children come along and have a go yesterday.
“We wanted kids to get involved and feel able to ask questions about owls and other wildlife, and to take an interest in it.”
