I suppose you always thought that your children were safe in a holiday club. Nice safe activities with nice safe staff. Oh dear.
With the run up to Samhain (Halloween) at the end of the week this holiday club has been more than educational. The kids have excelled themselves this year and along with jars of Coffin Larvae, Toenail Jam, Spider Ear Wax and Leaking Boils they have taught me the art of making Elf Poo...
In case Ofsted pop in I can safely say that setting up our 'Good Witch Company' has covered all aspects of the curriculum. Making our own labels, printing them and staining them with strong coffee to age them had English, IT, design and technology covered and our careful scientific experiments with a number of household ingredients took science to a new level.
The results were ghastly, stinky and mostly revolting (cooking oil, Angel Delight and handwash do not mix very well) - but our witchy kitchen is full and I am just wondering if we can get away with boiling a few kids tomorrow!
