Half term Monster Fun at Museum

Half term Monster Fun at Museum

Smiling happy children (14 of them + parents) enjoyed a fun afternoon at East St Museum during half term on Thursday 18th February. We were very happy to welcome local children and  visiting children on holiday in the area.
The large group of children did various craft projects involving painting, cutting and gluing. They made monkeys tree climbing – all very well made, to celebrate the Chinese year of the monkey. They painted and decorated scallop shells – ready for Rye’s scallop week. Also bead making was very popular – a Victorian craft , the end results looked very professional. Other items included fridge magnets ranging from a pizza cut out to hearts and various imaginative items of their own designs. Making monsters out of cardboard tubes with much messy painting and added wiggly eyes was also fun.
Thank you to the usual museum volunteers – Sue, Caroline, Heather and Sheila and of course thank you to the children and parents for enjoying the afternoon – see you again next half term!
