Boo Fest at the Kenosha Public Museum

This afternoon, the Kenosha Public Museum featured a Halloween event called “Boo Fest.”   Children were able to make a trick-or-treat bag, and Day of the Dead puppets.  They also learned about their bones and about owl pellets, went on a scavenger hunt, and watched artist Paul Hoepner sculpt a mask.

The little girl on the right, Amanda Billerbeck, the Campfire Marshmallow,  wrote the poem on the left and colored the picture at the bottom left and presented it to the museum desk staff.

Here are some other pictures from the event:

Even some of the adults joined in the fun:

A good time was had by all.
