Half term activities in Stevenage

19 May 2015

This half term Stevenage Borough Council is offering children lots of fun activities to keep them entertained, including Picasso inspired art sessions, nature events in our parks and games at our play centres.

During half term the council’s three play centres will be open offering a variety of fun activities, including sports days, cooking classes and rickshaw driving challenges, for Stevenage children aged five to 14. 

For those more interested in nature, on Wednesday we’re hosting a Wild Watch event in the Town Centre Gardens. Families can come along from 11am to 3pm to learn more about the world of bugs, insects and creepy crawlies.

And for youngsters who love art, Stevenage Museum is hosting three Picasso themed sessions during the week. Clay art sessions will be taking place on Wednesday and on Thursday children will be able to get creative and make their own Picasso collages. Both sessions are on from 10.30 to 11.30am and from 2 to 3pm and cost £2 per child. On Friday, children will have the chance to do arts and crafts Picasso style. This free session is taking place from 10.30 to 12 noon and from 2 to 3.30pm. 

Simon Speller, Executive Member for Children and Young People said, “This half-term is jam-packed full of fun ways to keep your children entertained for the week, whether they’re interested in art, nature or just want to play games and have fun.”
