Saturday Activities – 10:00 – 17:00
Printing Shopping Bags
Get ready to have some fun with Felltarn Friends and Westmorland Shopping Centre creating your very own veggie-stamp canvas bags using celery, potatoes, broccoli and lots more! Keep it for yourself or perhaps give it to a loved one for Easter.
Map Your Meal
Meet Zogg, Thea and Lily, three new friends who will take you on a journey of discovery. Travel around the world to find out where the food you eat comes from, through storytelling, creative activities and ice-cream tasting! Suitable for families with children aged between 5-8.
Run by Katie Carr, Cumbria Development Education Centre, as part of their ‘Map Your Meal’ project.
Sculpting with Ice Cream
Victorians loved to create sculptures out of ice cream! Discover how chefs made ice cream hundreds of years before freezers were invented and find out what tools they used to create spectacular frozen food art! Then have a go at mashing and molding a dessert in play-doh!
Create a Cress Head
Create your own cress head character. What will you want to turn yours into? An animal, your mum or dad, an alien? You decide, and you get to take it home and grow and eat its hair!
Run by Creation Station
Foodie Fun with Pyjama Drama
How strong is your stomach? Do you dare enter the bush tucker trial? If that’s not for you then perhaps food bingo or creative colouring is more your style. Plus ‘Greedy Gary’ will need feeding, he’ll eat anything really, you just have to have a good aim! Pop along and test your skills at a host of different fun activities.
