We have a number of egg-citing activities and competitions to keep you creatively active over the two-week Easter holiday break whilst at home.
Why not create a piece of art by using your recycling waste aka ‘junk modelling’? How about some mindfulness colouring time? Or perhaps test your knowledge of the Museum?
The only prerequisite is… to have fun!
