Halloween Fun!

Inglewood became a place of Halloween mischief on Tuesday 31st October as residents got artistic and messy decorating their very own creepy cupcakes to enjoy for afternoon tea.

Delicious chocolate and orange flavoured frosting was used to cover the cupcakes, along with rolled out orange icing, to create wonderfully inspired designs from mini monsters to Jack-o-lanterns. Staff truly got into the spirit of Halloween as Activities Coordinators, Vanessa Knott and Cally Thomas dressed up for the occasion and decorated the home.

The afternoon was filled with lots of trick-or-treat antics! The residents giggled and squirmed as they tried to guess what was inside the Mystery Box, and enjoyed a batty floor based game with Halloween quiz before enjoying their creepy cupcakes. In the run up to Halloween, residents also got creative by creating collages for the dining room display board. A fantastic and fun day had by all.

Sunday 9th July was an arts and crafts day at Inglewood.
