KIDS spent half-term getting crafty at activities organised across the area.
Erewash Museum has been hosting a week of discovery-based workshops with arts and crafts on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and science experiments all day on Thursday.
Cllr Mike Wallis, lead member for culture and leisure, said: “Science and the whole world of discovery is such fun and so exciting for young people.
“I am delighted that our museum is providing a whole week of crafts on this theme and I am sure it will be extremely popular.”
Derby College’s Broomfield Hall campus also had a range of activities on offer to keep the kids amused with the Food Hub running potato week to mark the launch of the farm shop’s potato products.
The Food Hub sells seed potatoes, potato growing bags and planters, compost and feed and teaches people how to get started in growing their own.
Children enjoyed planting up potatoes and were given the chance to take their efforts home as well as getting arty with potato printing.
And on Wednesday children were given the chance to meet the mammals at the college’s animal centre.
Activities continue until the end of this week. For information call Erewash Museum on 0115 9071141 and The Food Hub on 01332 836631.
