There was a buzz of excitement at the Wisbech and Fenland Museum when youngsters took part in a mini beast event. Children got the chance to make their own ladybirds, ants and bumble bees when the holiday drop-in workshop was held. They also enjoyed colouring in a variety of creatures, and completing mini beast word searches. It was one of a number of holiday events at the museum, with others including making frogs, dragonflies and newts at a pond life workshop, crowns and Holy Grail collages at a King Arthur workshop and Celtic shields at an Iron Age workshop. The museum’s next holiday drop-in workshop will be held during the October half-term on Wednesday, October 29. Called gunpowder plot, children will get the chance to make a Houses of Parliament collage and bonfire and firework pictures.
