Go wild on Wednesdays with the Yorkshire Museum

Museum Gardens YorkWe’re getting towards the end of the holidays and if you’re starting to run out of ideas for things to do with the children, you’re not alone. Luckily the Yorkshire Museum has come up with a brilliant program of ‘Wild Wednesday’ events in the Museum Gardens to keep little minds – and hands – occupied midweek. The theme of these free sessions is the four seasons, and they’ll use arts, craft, science and history to show how the seasons affect people and wildlife. There will be lots of fun activities like storytelling and face painting as well as the opportunity to handle objects from the Museum’s collection. On Wednesday 21st August, the theme is autumn and visitors can make luminous skeletons and learn about bats. On Wednesday 28th August, activities will include making clay and peppercorn hedgehogs, decorating an ‘igloo’ and rag rugging.

Wednesdays 21st and 28th August, 10am – 3pm, York Museum Gardens, Free
