Reasons for trip

I have the two grandsons several days a week during school holidays, and there is nothing worser than “I’m Bored Syndrome”. I am always on the look out for ideas in the local area that don’t cost an arm and a leg, to keep them entertained.

The Thursday morning craft sessions at “Brigg Heritage Centre”: are a godsend during the summer holidays. They run from 10-12 and there is always a different activity planned. This summer sessions included decoupage, scratch and scrape pictures, marble painting, designing and painting your own bag… There are always paints, felts and coloured crayons for those who just want to paint, along with scissors and glue for those who want to make their own thing. A small charge of £2.50 covers cost of materials.

The sessions aren’t widely advertised so it is usually the same small group of children who attend. Adult helpers quickly get to know the children by name and their preferences.

The grandsons love going especially as it involves a bus ride and fish and chip lunch afterwards. Activities are geared to their level and skills and there is always plenty of help available. The main challenge was bringing back the still wet marble paintings on the bus…

Craft sessions are also run on the fourth Saturday of the month and often have a seasonal theme – decorating eggs for Easter, making pumpkin faces and paper lanterns at halloween, Christmas decorations and making bird feeders for the winter.

Adults aren’t forgotten and full day craft workshops are run on lost skills like felting as well as painting courses.
