HOCUS POCUS INCORPORATES HALLOWEEN FUN, EDUCATION AT CHILDREN’S HANDS ON MUSEUM

Reporting by WVUA 23’s Monae Stevens

The Children’s Hands On Museum (CHOM) held an event called “Hocus Pocus” in celebration of the upcoming Halloween holiday. Children were able to get into the spooky spirit while learning about Halloween.

Activities such as making magic wands, black cats and potions helped enrich their creativity, while going on a scavenger hunt enriched their critical thinking skills.

“Any way you can make learning look fun is important for kids,” said CHOM public programs coordinator Kimberly Crabbe. “Especially when they’re developing at the prime ages when they’re coming to us and playing here.”

CHOM has been teaching kids about Halloween all this month, and they will continue with their activities on Thursday, Oct. 24.
