Blues and 2’s – Activities for the Under 5’s
Our Blues and 2s session on September 10 looks at not getting ‘lost’! The 45 minute sessions for 2 to 4 year olds include the storytelling of ‘A Bit Lost’ by Chris Haughton as well as a rhyme, trail and craft activity. There are two sessions, one at 10am and another at 11.30am. Booking is essential as spaces are limited. It costs £2 per child.
On Saturday September 12 children aged 6+ can make a wanted poster using our original 1970s photo fit kits. Then using ipads make their own efit from just a description to find the criminal within the museum displays!
Sessions run from 11am to 12.30pm and again at 2 to 3.30pm. Spaces are limited so booking is essential. This event is FREE.
The museum will be open to the public from 10am to 4pm as normal.
