Some very creative recreations of haunted houses are part of a Halloween competition at the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre.
The museum is running a contest in classes from junior kindergarten to Grade 6. Program coordinator Monica Towsley says the houses are made of recycled materials, adorned with Halloween decorations.
“They’re also going to be on display over the Halloween weekend,” she says,“so they’ll be able to be viewed by the public. You can stop by and come check them out in our program room.”
Towsley says the classes are having so much fun, they probably don’t realize they’re learning something.
“They can learn about building structures, they can learn about upcycling and getting to be creative.”
The best part is that four classes are going to each win a pizza party.
