My boys were very excited when a very special letter landed on our doorstep. It was an invitation to the BEAR Claws Halloween party. This invite gave them the opportunity to combine two of their favourite things: going to London and eating BEAR Claws. Oh, and the most exciting thing of all? BEAR himself would be there to enjoy the fun too!
So, in the middle of half-term, we boarded a train to London armed with a map to the Deep Dark Woods (aka the Whole Foods Market on Kensington High Street). There followed three hours of magical mayhem with BEAR and his team – plus a little help from the children’s entertainers Sharky and George.
My youngest was truly enchanted by his BEAR hug and hasn’t stopped talking about it since. My eldest relished the chance to dance and craft non-stop for several hours.
And I enjoyed meeting the talented illustrator Katie Abey – who was there to help us all capture a bit of Halloween magic on paper. My little monsters also couldn’t resist the amazing face (and hand) painting on offer.
Back home, we were surprised by another delivery from BEAR. This time it was a box of super-glittery craft supplies, and enough yummy BEAR claws to keep my boys quiet for some time.
I’m always delighted when kind people send easy crafts for my children to do while I drink coffee. Our parcels contained everything we needed to make some awesome glittery pumpkins.
Take a miniature munchkin and drizzle with PVA glue – then sprinkle with glitter. Make your creations extra scary by adding some of the glow in the dark trick or treat stickers currently free in limited edition Halloween packs of BEAR Claws.
BEAR Claws are fruity little monster body parts made from 100% pure fruit and vegetables. They’re super yummy and the perfect healthier alternative to sweets this Halloween. Limited edition packs of BEAR Claws are in supermarkets now, ready for trick or treating fun!
