Fun and Games to Keep the Kids Entertained at Half Term

From yummy cooking and arts and crafts to skating and slime making, there's lots going on in Welwyn Hatfield this half term to keep the kids entertained.

Half term 2

Mill Green Museum and Mill

Turn the clock back 100 years and find out how Welwyn Garden City became a town designed for living, working and playing. The centenary exhibition, 'Welwyn Garden City: By Wisdom and Design', showcases original objects from the museum collection, from 1920s furniture to a midwife's uniform and equipment. There's dressing up and interactive activities for little kids and big kids too!

There's also arts and crafts days for your little treasures to create some decorative treasures including leaf bowl making and wall hangings, inspired by renowned local artist, Patrick Heron, whose work is currently on display in the museum gallery.

If all that activity leaves everyone with an appetite, pop in to the pop-up kitchen serving locally sourced food, including Mill Green's freshly baked bread.
