Head to Hawes for half term holiday fun with the kids
7:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
SPOOKY stories, music and food will keep youngsters entertained at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes during half term next week.
A series of events are taking place for children – which means mums and dads will be able to look round the museum and enjoy the latest exhibition called ‘Out of Yorkshire’ by a group of artists.
The fun starts on Monday October 28 with ‘The Big Draw’ and on Tuesday there are activities in the “Creation Station” on the museum train.
The events are free with a museum ticket every day between 10am and 5pm.
On Tuesday, youngsters aged seven-to-3 will also have the chance to hear stories about Brazil and the Amazon rainforest and to hear and play special instruments that imitate the sound of the forest, like a spring drum and a snake tube.
They will be able to join in the music making using a range of exotic instruments and learn some dance steps. The workshop runs from 10.30am-3pm and costs £3.
Booking is essential and visitors are advised to take a packed lunch.
On Wednesday between 2pm-4pm there will be an afternoon session full of spooky stories, craft activities and things that go bump in the night costing £3 per child.
And on Halloween itself, youngsters will have the chance to test their kitchen skills in a Halloween biscuit decorating session from 2pm to 4pm.
The family drop-in event is part of the Museum’s ‘Yorkshire Dales Food – A Celebration!’ project.
Museum manager Fiona Rosher said: “We have a great range of family activities this half term that will keep the children entertained."
