Family Christmas Crafts

This weekend we had lots of family fun at our first event as the laboratory at Wat Tyler Country Park. On Saturday hundreds of people visited the park for the Family Christmas Fun day. 
We set up in the barn, with two activities for families to come and join in - Paper Craft Christmas Trees (as pictured below) and Paper Craft Christmas Wreaths.

 Within  no time the barn was bustling with excitement and creativity. Families enjoyed spending quality time together, learning accessible and affordable craft techniques and thanks to the heaters - managed to kept warm whilst working! Families watched a short demonstration and the used a wide range of craft materials to create their own stunning Christmas decoration.
