Haunted House (2005)
This year we voted for 'Haunted House' as our theme. Our sixes were Ghosts, Vampires and Werewolves. The adults were Dracula, Moaning Myrtle, Raven and Casper. These were our charts:
After unpacking our bags and eating a snack we went to Chislehurst Caves for a special Ghost Tour!
When we got back we cooked and ate dinner. We then made ghostly costumes in our sixes.
After this we went for a walk around the Pack Holiday sight in the
dark to see if we could spot any other ghosts.
On Saturday morning we made toys and played games that dated from when we were alive.
On Saturday afternoon we went to a ghost school that held lessons to help us with our haunting skills.
Poltegiest Phenomenon Class: We practised throwing plates in exciting ways
and stacking chairs to scare the mortals who enter our house.
History of Haunting: We completed a quiz about ghosts and haunting.
All the answers were scattered around the house.
Face on Film: We made cameras and used them to take our own ghostly photographs.
Exciting Ectoplasm: We made three types of ectoplasm.
Defence against exorcism: We learnt a 'spell' to stop exorcisms.
We decoded a set of clues and found the corresponding objects to make the spell work.
On Saturday evening we performed plays that revealed why we still haunted the house.
We then learnt how to play the card game werewolves.
After this we went over to the camping field and had a
campfire. We sang lots of songs.
At midnight we had a midnight feast.
On Sunday morning we packed up our things, peeled potatoes and
then we took part in a ghostly treasure hunt.
On Sunday afternoon we went to Swanley Park to celebrate one of our birthdays. There was an adventure playground, a train, fairground rides and a paddling pool. We ate a picnic tea on the grass.
We returned back to the Pack Holiday house for our closing ceremony and then went home.
But maybe our spirits will always haunt the house?...
