Keep the kids free from boredom this half term!

With the autumn half-term holiday fast approaching, the National Waterfront Museum will be offering a fun-packed programme to keep the whole family entertained.

Kicking things off on Sunday (23 Oct) is Make a Mountain, a hands-on creative workshop ideal for those aged 7-11 years. The workshop, which is inspired by a huge River Catchment Model on display in the Museum’s main hall, will give visitors the chance to discover interesting facts about maps and changing landscapes as well as make their very own scaled model to take home.

Waterfront Nippers will take place on Friday 28 October, a drop-in session ideal for those aged 18 months and 5 years. This monthly workshop includes hands-on activities such as crafts and sing-a-longs. These sessions are at 10.30am and 1.30pm.

Then, just in time for Halloween, families will get the chance to take part in the Big Beastly Bug Draw on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October. Celebrating the Big Draw - Campaign for Drawing, those attending will get to grips with magnifying glasses and microscopes to draw some fascinating critters in giant scale. This is a drop-in session and runs from 12pm to 4pm.

Speaking about the activities, Head of Museum Steph Mastoris said: “With the weather getting much colder, there is no better time to visit us and get the whole family involved with the free, fun, creative programme we offer."
