Come and have a look at our Halloween small world: take the tour and be inspired by our clever little spooky details to set up your own scary scene at home!
It’s Halloween, and for the first time ever I am a little bit excited about that this year. I grew up in Belgium, where we didn’t celebrate Halloween in those days (that makes me sound old – I’m not!). I think I first learned about Halloween through the movie Hocus Pocus. (Which I fully intend on forcing my husband to watch with me this year.) Over the past couple of years Halloween has become more popular all over the world and there is no escaping it. So I’ve decided to embrace it.
Lots of people have told me how Halloween above anything else was fun and a part of their family tradition: the decorating, costume making and trick or treating. Now, I’m all for making memories and having family fun so we’ll give it our best shot this year!
In preparation I’ve been working on a Halloween Small World scene. Noa has been curious about my ‘tinkering’ for weeks and cannot wait to be allowed in my studio and have a play. It’ll be an excellent opportunity for her to explore how Halloween is presented in all it’s stereotypes and I will try and answer all of her questions.
I already know that we’ll get the most ‘play’ out of our small world after Halloween, when children want to relive their adventures (over and over again). Small world play is perfectly suited for just that!
So, without further ado, here it is:
I hope you enjoyed this small world and that it has given you some inspiration to ‘play Halloween’ for a bit longer.
And just in case you’re a small world play enthusiast like myself, you might want to have a look at our other small worlds and find heaps of inspiration on our dedicated Pinterest board. You won’t know where to start first!
Take care and happy Halloween!
