Have started to think ahead for Autumn (now the summer is over *equally sobs and celebrates at the same time!)so have popped this list together including some ideas for Halloween for older kids (10+) as I find this the trickiest age to plan half terms activities for. There seem to be lots for littlies but can feel a bit babyish for the pre-teens/teens. So get planning your October half term schedule and join in with the Halloween fun!
