South West team gets creative for Halloween

Archived: Posted November 4, 2015

Staff, foster carers and young people from across our South Western region marked Halloween with a team building event at Welcome Hall in Plymouth.

Halloween masksThe day began with  pumpkin carving, we had some very creative designs and everyone helped each other with the task. Once complete all our young people patiently waited whilst the staff cleared up the mess and set up the tables for the next task which was mask painting. Everyone really engaged with these tasks and some beautiful designs were created by the children and young people.

Leading up to lunch time we played games including musical statues and musical chairs. We stopped for lunch and once fed and watered the young people were keen to continue having fun. We had races for dressing each other up as mummies, wrapping ourselves in tissue! Whilst this was going on others were having their faces painted in whatever design they chose.

The day finished with a clothes race where the young people had to put various items of clothing on over their own clothes, from a scarf to gloves, a hat to socks! When the day ended the young people helped clear up and were all given a goodie bag to take home.
