Activities for Children

Craft activities and displays for children are offered all through the year at Abingdon County Hall Museum. Subjects in the coming months include using clay to copy skills used in ancient times, robot making, getting kids inspired by mosaics.

1st December on the day of the parade and Christmas lights switch on there are crafts for Christmas - make a gift or something for home decoration. There is a special section of the website for the Museum and crafts even for adults. Look out for intersting activities run by some very special people during some weekends, holidays and half terms. A feature in the New Year will be working with artist Barbara Payne.
