The Big Neighbourhood Pumpkin Trail
Remember the ‘Rainbow Trail’ that did the rounds in spring and summer? It was a simple way of making children (and adults) feel connected with each other by drawing, painting or making a rainbow and displaying it at their house or in their window for other children to find on a walk? Well this month, The Rainbow Trail has been replaced with a The Big Neighbourhood Pumpkin Trail. As far as I can tell both the Rainbow and the Pumpkin trail were started by ARTventurers who provide art classes around the country for children. Here is an image of their webpage but the link below will take you to their site.
Because trick or treating this year will be different for children (or may even be completely discouraged) due to COVID-19 restrictions the idea behind the Pumpkin Trail is very simple. Just print off your template from here, colour in a and stick in your window.
There are some printable posters and some other Halloween bits and pieces too on the ARTventurers site and you can also join the Facebook group to share idea and pictures.
I want to be clear that I am not affiliated with ARTventurers at all I have just have Primary School-aged children who love this sort of thing!
