Halloween Activities At Skidby Mill

Skidby Mill is holding a craft day for families on Thursday, 30 October.

Children of all ages with their families can drop in and have a go at making simple corn dollies and other craft activities. Everyone is invited to join in the fun by coming along wearing a costume, if they would like to.

Children at the event can make a ghoulish ghost or a wicked witch from traditionally prepared harvested straws, using easy corn dolly techniques.

Younger children can use a variety of craft materials to spirit up a wand fit for witches and warlocks to create havoc.

There are also activities for very young children. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

With the grain crops harvested and the winter drawing near, it was traditional to make corn dollies using straw from the harvest.

In pagan times across Europe, the last sheaf of the harvest would be made into a hollow ‘corn dolly’.

This was believed to be where the ‘spirit of the corn’ would stay over winter. It was returned to the land by being ploughed into the field’s first furrow the following season.
