Sewerby Squirrels sessions will take place throughout October at the Orangery at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, held for under 5s and their grown-ups on Mondays during term time, from 10-11.30am.
Sessions are based on seasonal events, Edwardian life and Sewerby Hall exhibits, and all include books to read, a sensory area and a quiet corner – plus themed activities.
On Monday, 7 October, the Edwardian Kitchen session allows visitors to have a go at using a jelly mould, play with bread dough and get messy with flour.
Monday, 14 October will be a sea-themed craft session where participants will be able to make their very own paper plate jellyfish to take home, as well as enjoying sea-themed play.
The last session of the month – Garden Explorers – takes place on Monday, 21 October, where participants can enjoy garden-themed activities and also explore outside in the grounds. This session’s seasonal theme is colours, and the team of explorers leave the Orangery together at 10.30am – so remember to dress for the weather!
