Carve your scariest face at Monkton Elm this Halloween

Children from across Somerset can have a go at carving their best ghoulish faces into pumpkins when our pumpkin carving workshops for youngsters return during October half-term.

The workshops will take place in our ‘grow your own area’, which will be decorated with a spooky Halloween theme. Staff members will be on hand to assist children in carving their designs. Children will not actual handle knives.

These carving workshops are perfect if you are looking to keep youngsters occupied during the half term holidays. As the workshops are within sight of the Pondside Café, mum or dad can treat themselves to a hot drink and cake, or why not stay for lunch in The Elm Tree Restaurant. Children’s lunch box meals are available for just £4.20, and there is a free children’s play area to round off your visit.

We will also be holding a Pumpkin Trail where parents and children will search the garden centre for our own carved pumpkins. They will be able to collect letters from the lanterns to solve an overall word puzzle. All completed forms will be rewarded with a sweet treat.

The pumpkin carving workshops will cost £3.99 per child, and they run from Saturday 27th October until Wednesday 31st October. They run from 10am – 1pm and from 2pm until 4pm. The Pumpkin Trail will cost £1 per child and will run all day on the same dates.
