Receive a free bewitching new activity every day over October Half Term with video tutorials and printable activity sheets.

Our activities take inspiration from our very own enchanted woodland where you can immerse yourself under the autumnal canopy of trees, follow the windy path up past the Stumpery and take time to watch the birds and insects that call this place home.

Our artists have also drawn on the nature which can be seen in paintings at Watts Gallery and the creatures found on the walls of Watts Chapel.
