‘Sewerby Squirrels’ activities for children under 5 will be returning from 10 January with a range of fun and imaginative events for youngsters to take part in. Every Monday, Sewerby Hall and Gardens offers books to read, a sensory area, and a themed activity to enjoy, with sessions running between 10 and 11:30am.
The first event of 2022 will take place on Monday, 10 January, and will see little ones take part in an Amy Johnson themed craft session, where they can cut, stick, and draw to produce flight-themed creations, including making a giant aeroplane together. On 17 January, children can take part in a Beach Explorers morning, enjoying sand play, beach themed toys, and dressing up. Participants are advised to bring a change of clothes with them.
Things turn historical on 24 January with an activity all about Edwardian Cleaning. Under 5s can try their hands at cleaning just like the inhabitants of Sewerby Hall back in 1910. Activities will include using a Dolly Tub, beating a carpet, polishing brass, and playing with bubbles (weather dependent).
On 31 January, children are invited along to a Garden Themed Craft event. Participants will make a carrot counting game to take home, as well as enjoying some garden-themed play.
Lucy Cooke, under 5s learning co-ordinator at Sewerby Hall, said: “It’s great to welcome under 5s to Sewerby Hall every week and see them enjoying our Sewerby Squirrels sessions. With a variety of activities on offer, each week there is something different to experience.”
There are limited places available for each session, so booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. Ask in the Welcome Centre or call (01262) 673769.
A small charge of £2 applies for each child aged 3-4, including one accompanying adult. There is free entry for annual pass holders and under 3s. For more information, visit sewerbyhall.co.uk/squirrels
