I’m on mummy duty for a couple of weeks, and I was mooching around Twitter looking for some ideas about a day out, and came across a link to Hartlebury Museum in Worcestershire for kids go free – thanks as always Sally! (click here for Raring2Go! or click here for Sally’s Twitter feed )
It’s a lovely place. With the Raring2Go! Voucher, and my boy being under 5, I only had to pay for me – £5.00, plus a £1 each for the children to do the craft activities.
There is tons going on, this week it’s all about the Romans, so we made Roman ‘clay face pots’
We also had a good mooch around the museum, looking for ‘A-Z’ treasure hunts, and along the way we discovered some fantastic items:
The children also had the chance to have a go at some archery (£2 for 4 arrows) and they adored this, so we had to do it twice!
Especially as they both got bullseyes!!
We got the chance to learn how to write in Roman Cursive script as well:
And dress up a Roman Soldier:
We had a lovely picnic, it stated dry enough for us to eat in the picnic area, plus I got to put the children in the stocks!
We then had a little wander around the ‘Old Moat Coppice’ which is a small nature trail and picnic area – very pretty and a great place for hide and seek!
We’ve had a great day – and the children want to go back next week for the ‘Greek’ crafts!
