Thank you to everyone for attending the Halloween Party on Saturday October 27th. We hope you all had as much fun as we did!! It was lovely seeing everyone was getting involved in all the activities, online from Hannah and Gareth showing everyone exactly how to bob for apples and Lexi giving it her all on the dance floor during the “Baby Beats” session. Besides the children’s initial horror of seeing us all dressed up as vampires and witches, everyone looked like they were having fun.

The children’s costumes were the best! We had several mini-pumpkins, the youngest pumpkin – Henna was as young as four months! Then, there were little witches, ghosts, spiders and skeletons. Everyone made such an effort! Even some parents dressed up! Checkout the photos on Facebook.

We converted our Nursery into spooky adventure room with disco lights, arts and crafts and games for children and parents. Kids played in green gloop filled with spiders, made their own spider web, coated sweets in flour, and even decorated their own spooky Halloween cupcakes (to be honest most of cupcake decorations went straight to their little mouths) but all together great fun! Our guests had also a chance to buy raffle tickets to win a free session in our nursery, ‘Happy Hopperz’ bouncing toy and books. The lucky winners were revealed on Monday; Lou was thrilled with her free nursery session, so were mums of little Charlotte and Florence winning books and toys.

Our special guest – Alice entertained the crowd with her ‘Baby Beats’, music and arts class tailored especially for our Halloween Party in mind! There was singing, dancing, clapping, games and bubbles blowing. And all guests loved it! The children also loved the glitter tattoos, face painting and playing with a green gloop.

Our wonderful members also contributed to the success of the party: Karen and Patrick O’Neil the founders of RDA Organic donated their super – tasty, organic fruit juices. We had a pleasure to taste many different flavours and all guests got a bag with the juice to take home.

We’ve had wonderful feedback from everyone who attended and hope to schedule in more regular parties for our members and their friends in the future. Organizing regular events for both parents and children is integral to what Third Door offers to the wider community and we hope that we can continue improving our parties in 2013 and that you can join us in the future!
