Playful Museums Festival 2023 - Nature Workshops for Under 5s
7th - 23rd February
In a new project ‘Seek, Find, Speak, Create’ children aged 3-4 years can join Museum Services at one of four local green spaces in an outdoor trail to explore nature’s treasures followed by an indoor family craft workshop. Activities will be facilitated by The Hares Corner Cooperative, and, with help from Freddie the Squirrel, will encourage children to look for the signs of nature. Children will have the chance to get creative together by decorating a frame that represents nature from the outdoors and within museum collections. The children’s work will then go on display in a weeklong exhibition at Ballymoney Museum.
The four sessions will take place from 10am-12pm on the following dates and locations:
Tuesday 7th February, Roe Valley Country Park – Green Lane Museum
Thursday 9th February, Anderson Park – Coleraine Town Hall
Tuesday 21st February, Megaw Park – Ballymoney Town Hall
Thursday 23rd February, Ballycastle Forest Park – Ramoan Parish Centre
