ACTIVITY BOOKLET

Wonder Worlds

Children and Families: pick up one of our WONDER WORLDS activity booklets from Playspace, or our reception desk, and make your way up the stairs to the first floor. Use the map and the picture clues to find the artworks. There are fun drawing and making activities in the booklet: some you can do at the Gallery and some you can do at home, including a magic ink experiment! When you have finished, take your booklet to reception and receive your own sunflower seeds to plant. Our sunflower seeds have been donated by Kings Seeds.
