Coco - Day of the Dead Activities

It’s a brand new month and we are about to get Mexican! Never visited the country myself but I love the stories, myths and energy from them, plus I love a lot of their food too! There used to be a Mexican restaurant in the previous town I lived in that had great dishes with crocodile meat and really unusual meats which was great.

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl's The Wicthes is the final topic in our Roald Dahl month.  This story really is one of the scariest kids stories you can find and I think that is why it is so popular, I really believe that kids quite enjoy getting scared as long as it's in a safe environment.  I have utilised this in my shows. I have a puppet called Ferris, who looks like a realistic ferret, he comes out all cute and adorable the kids can pet him but then he leaps out into the audience, this delivers a real shock and scream moment in my otherwise very safe a funny shows.  This rollercoaster of emotion is what makes the best stories.  I have two brilliant ideas for you today, a great witch based game and the recipe for pea soup from the story.
