Bonfire Night ActivitiesNeed a little inspiration for what to do on bonfire night? Here's a few ideas to get you started:
- Apple bobbing - great fun for the whole family! See who can collect the most.
- Toast marshmallows - always a winner and even better with a cup of hot chocolate!
- Fireworks display - if you're lucky enough to have a fireworks display nearby, set up camp and snuggle under blankets to watch.
- Get creative - How about making your own firework art by splattering paint on paper - we like using bright colours on black paper.
- Stargazing - No fireworks nearby? If it's a clear night, how about trying a spot of stargazing and see what your little explorers can discover.
