Summer Holiday Fun @ The Natural World Centre, Whisby from Monday 4 August 2014

Kids can have a great time with their family this Summer Holiday at the Natural World Centre, Whisby.

Get crafty and creative in these great workshops to keep your children busy this summer holiday.

Starting on Monday 4 August, in this jam packed week you can make your own Creature Canvas using paints and papers to hang in your room.

On Tuesday 4 August and Wednesday 6 August, drop in and see us to make your very own badge to take away for free! On Thursday 7 August, it’s time to get messy and make your own Clay Critter using clay, twigs, googly eyes and lots of imagination. Take a wonder through Whisby and explore animal prints then recreate your own Clay Prints to take home.

On Friday 8 August, our popular Animal Spoons workshop will take place where you can create your own animal character! It could be a frog you have spotted in the park or a creature you have created yourself!

And it doesn’t stop there! There’s plenty more workshops on offer starting Wednesday 13 August. Hop to it and create your very own Leap Frog using recycled materials and design a pond in a box on Thursday 14 August, creating your own mini Whisby to take home!

On Thursday 19 August turn old kitchen roll tubes in to a flock of funky and feathery tweety birds in Birds of a Feather.

On Wednesday 20 August, create Tree Mobiles with a bugtastic effect! Using dragonflies, bees and butterflies your mobile will flutter in the trees; not forgetting the sparkles to glisten in the sun!

To round off a great summer holiday, come along and make Grass Animals on Wednesday 27 August. Using soil, grass seed and recycled materials to create your own animal. Just wait and see what happens when you add some water!

If that isn’t enough, the last workshop of the holidays Cress Heads will help you transform old jam jars into a funny faced character for you to take home. Don’t forget to add water and watch their hairline sprout!

All activities are £3 per child and are suitable for 4 years and above. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. Payment must be received to guarantee your space. All activities start at different times so please ask upon enquiry.
