What's New at Activity Village?

18th October 2018
This week we've really gone to town on upcoming "holidays" Halloween and Mexico's Day of the Dead. I didn't know anything about Day of the Dead until we started our new collection, and I've found learning about the festival, its origins and how it is celebrated fascinating. I hope you enjoy our new activities as much as we have enjoyed putting them together.
Please remember that what we feature in the newsletter is just a tiny proportion of what's available on the website! So if Halloween and Day of the Dead and the other new collections featured below aren't of interest to you, just click through to the website and explore!
