Hello, we are three Owls who will be observing at the Veg o Lantern competition.  We hope you will make some friends to come and see us at The Real Halloween (we can’t enter ourselves as we have spent too long in Fairyland but we’ll feel a bit lonely if nobody else shows up).  Hope to see you there !

As you can read here, the idea is to make traditional ‘jack-o–lanterns’ using British root veg or other fruits and veg but not pumpkins.  Make sure to include a space for a tea-light and use vegetable material for arms, legs, wings, ears etc – and you can use googly eyes.  Do have a look at some of the great creations made in recent years.  Entry is free and there are prizes to be won !

Here we are watching TV.  “On the whole we like wildlife films and gardening programmes, not horror flicks like ‘The Great British Bake-Off'”.

“There was a big moon last night but you can see how our tea-lights give us a nice sweet glow.  After a bit we have a roasting sugar sort of smell”.

Our ears and wings are made from bay leaves and our noses from onions.

Here’s some of this year’s cool Veg o Lantern competition prizes:

halloween-prizes-6-to-12

The 6 – 12 years category prizes.  Nice book !  Should help you spot bugs (if you find any slugs please direct them elsewhere, and please don’t bring any rabbits to The Real Halloween).  Cuddly fox and a bug making-bigger magnifier thingy. (See details below – also get a Seed Wand)

halloween-prizes-family

The Family Category Prizes. Bird Food (not sure what’s in there but not Sugar Beet we think).  Another nice book and some Animal Masks of British Wildlife.  Worth making a Veg o Lantern for !

(See details below – also get a Seed Wand and a Bat Kit)

Looking forward to seeing you at the Veg o Lantern Competition.  Be sure to get your entries in by 3pm, Prizes at 4pm.
