Spooky Goings On…

Halloween at Monkey Puzzle SouthportIt’s that time of year again, when the gremlins, spectres and wacky witches cross over from the dark side, yes it’s Halloween!

Parent’s Take Home Bags

If you haven’t already seen, you will find our new activity packs on the ground floor near the coat pegs.

The bags contain plenty of things for you and your toddler to be creative with. There are also some great books to take home and read, “Aliens Love Underpants” (yes it really is called that!) or “Norman The Snail” and his search for a fancy shell.

Along with the books there are pots of Play Doh or gloop if you’re feeling creative, props, recipes and ingredients.

For the brave ones among you why not take home our bug hunters bag. There’s a specimen jar for the creepy crawlies you come across and a magnifying glass so that you can get up close and personal! So let’s see what you intrepid explorers can find in your garden or the park and don’t keep it to yourself, bring it into the nursery and show us!

If you have any questions just ask your child’s key worker…
