October half term falls over Halloween this year which means there are loads of fun and frightening things to do to keep the kids entertained. But when you’ve made all the bat shaped cookies and witches hats can you handle, we’ve put together a great selection of family fun activities to keep everyone busy over the holidays.

The National Space Centre in Leicester has a fantastic schedule of events for the kids this half term with a great Halloween theme. If your little monsters love to get messy then they will surely enjoy learning to make their own slime!
If you don’t want to encourage any mess making though, keep things clean and dry at the ‘Planescarium Show’, a ghoulish themed guide to the galaxy, or take them to learn about the science of magic! It’s fun and educational!
