Autumn – “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”

Also the season of pumpkin lanterns, colourful leaves, wet and windy weather and…. half term !! I just spent this half term week visiting The Zone in Rawtenstall, Maden Centre in Bacup and Haslingden Nursery Centre in, yes you got it Haslingden with a range of Autumn inspired activities. These three small towns are right on my doorstep and sit snugly in the Rossendale Valley, Lancashire.

My theme – Light and Dark, shadows, autumn aromas.

I offered a variety of activities suitable for a range of ages from babies through to 7-8 years. A sensory play mat for babies through to 3 – 4 years, for older children there were table top crafts; collage, paper tearing, creating jack o’ lanterns and silhouettes that could be used in the shadow play area. Finally there were the raw state spices and oranges giving off lovely warm autumnal aromas.

Many thanks to Liz Charles, Mohammed Parvez, Michaela and all the staff and volunteers at the Rossendale Children and Family Wellbeing Service for their help during the week.
