October has been a fun filled month at The Yard and as it was the Edinburgh schools holiday for two weeks we had lots of families in for family sessions.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been busy decorating the place for Halloween and most of the play sessions have involved creating fun and spooky decorations! At our 4-9s drop in session, we decided that rather than following the traditional trends and carve pumpkins the children would paint them and cover them in glitter. There was glitter everywhere, but the pumpkins looked absolutely amazing.

Our early years session also followed the Halloween theme and all the children helped to make pumpkin soup and bread.

We finished our Halloween celebrations with all three of our Teenage Clubs dressing up for our Halloween party in the evening. There were lots of fun games including dunking for apples, eating doughnuts off the string and of course spooky Halloween dancing!

Now that Halloween is over, we are looking forward to hosting our Bonfire Night next Wednesday!
