Pom pom sheep in a lolly pop cart in grass

Get creative at home with half term fun inspired by The MERL and the UoR Special Collections. Cook up a storm in the kitchen with seasonal recipes and get stuck in to our craft-along videos.

Craft-along activities

For these activities you will need: lolly-sticks, a drinking or craft straw, a wooden skewer, scrap corrugated card, googly eyes, wool, black felt or card. Plus glue (a glue gun is great but other glue will work), scissors, a pencil and ruler, double-sided tape. Younger children should use scissors and glue gun with adult supervision.

*Remember that you can pause the video at any point you like!
