Reduce, Reuse, and Rewild this October Half Term with activities to do at home or visit us in the museum to learn more.

Make some musical instruments from things you can find on a walk outside, or “go green” this Halloween and raid your recycling bin to craft a bat rocket and make some monster feet to wear!

You can also visit us in the museum to take a walk on the wild side with our Rewilding Trail, and on 18, 20, 22, and 24 October you can find out more about rewilding and upcycling with our Learning Enabler team and see if you can fish out some rubbish to discover how long it takes to decompose.

Green your Hallowe'en

Rummage through your rubbish and find what you need to create these creepy crafts!
