We skip the candy and the fright and offer a day time Halloween carnival that is sure to treat our youngest guests with “booful” delight!
The Woodlands Children’s Museum is, once again hosting, its annual SpookTacular event from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, October 31st. Dress in costume and enjoy live music with Tom’s Fun Band, non-scary magic with Professor Hughdini, Monster Mash reading with Ms. Jan, slime making, face painting, mummy wrapping, age-appropriate games and Halloween-themed art projects perfect for little ones under age 7.
“This is one of our favorite events each year,” stated Angela Colton, the museum’s Executive Director. “We adore watching the children dig for spooky treasure in our sensory bins, play ring toss with the pumpkins, bob for marshmallows on a string and knock over monster pins in our bowling game. It creates wonderful memories for families in a safe and enriching environment. Instead of sugary treats, we give small prizes for children to enjoy.”
Understanding that Halloween can be a scary time for toddlers, the museum is decorated in a colorful theme that is designed for smiles and laughter. Crowd size and noise are also limited so that young children are not overwhelmed.
This year, the museum will offer six session times: 10am-12pm, 11am-1pm, 12pm-2pm, 1pm-3pm, 2pm-4pm, and 3pm-5pm. Staff will be cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day. Visitors are still required to wear PPE masks, use provided hand sanitizer and have their temperature taken upon entering the museum. Children under 12 will not be required to wear masks…except, hopefully, all young ones will be in costume.
