Kids have a Spooktacular time at the Halloween Romp

It was proven last Saturday, October 22 that this years Halloween Romp at the Children's Museum in Easton was a frightfully good time. Children of all ages came to find a variety of decorations, games, and crafts of a array of Halloween fun.

As children arrived they were greeted by Sully and an agent from the CDA from Disney Pixar's, Monster's Inc. Sully and the CDA agent entertained the children with hilarious dancing and moves before the Halloween fun began. Outside there were numerous activities and games like melting a creepy, scary witch, invent a creepy potion concoction, and create Halloween art with sidewalk chalk. Children also caught a glimpse of where the trick-or-treating will occur later during the event.

Inside the museum the kids found numerous features, crafts, and games including a "fire-breathing dragon" craft, make your own spider hat, alien bowling, various ring toss games, and creepy creatures from Marla Isaac's of the New England Reptile and Raptor exhibit. There was also a candy corn guessing game throughout the museum, where children guessed how many where in the jar for a chance to win it all.

The last part was the popular Halloween favorite: Trick or treating. Children were led by group leaders into the "wild place" and collected treats and viewed scary features and items among ten different areas. Among these areas included a herbology area, a dragons lair, a witches station, a creepy library, a space exhibition, a two-level priate station, an area for princess' and fairies, a mad scientists labortory, and the eerie graveyard.

All in all this year's Halloween Romp was quite a success. Be sure to follow us on our Facebook, Twitter, and new LinkedIn pages.
