Maidstone Museum Half Term Activities


It won't be long until we get to October half term and Maidstone Museum are running some exciting activities for children and families. 


For KS2 children they are running Arts Award days on Egyptian and Japanese themes. These are a full day of themed craft and history activities where the parents can drop off in the morning and collect in the afternoon - and the children earn a Discover Arts Award. Advance booking is required.


The Museum is also running its usual half term Make It! sessions for 4-11 year olds. They are now back to online bookings so places can be booked in advance.


Fliers for both of these are attached below.

Reconnect with having fun times!


After a year of staying in, it's time to get out there and Reconnect with the things you've missed over the past 12 months. There are lots of fun activities and events going on across the county, so find something that interests you and have fun!
