I do like to be beside the seaside – starts 30 July 2015
You don’t need to go to the seaside when the seaside can come to you in the shape of fun craft activities.
Over the summer, Dewsbury Museum is holding four weekly craft sessions, each with a different theme to make sure children can enjoy all of the fun of the seaside at home.
The ‘I do like to be beside the seaside’ activities are being held on Thursdays, 12noon-4pm,.
The first session is on 30 July and will involve making rock pools from recycled materials and filling them with handmade shells and sea creatures.
On August 6, children can design and decorate a swimming costume or trunks
On August 13, they will be able to make their own cardboard flip-flops, decorated with their own designs.
No trip to the seaside is complete without an ice cream, so on August 20 youngsters will be able to colour and decorate a paper cone to create their fantasy ice cream.
More Information on the seaside activities
The sessions are free and there is no need to book.
The activities are suitable for all ages; children must be accompanied by an adult.
