February half-term at Ormesby Hall
Come rain or shine there'll be plenty of family fun during February half-term at Ormesby Hall. Venture indoors and follow the children's fairytale trail, then enjoy some fresh air and embrace the outdoors spotting the new spring flowers popping up in the garden
Once upon a fairytale
Children can collect their once upon a fairytale trail on arrival from reception, then be on the look out for spaces in the house reflecting classic children's fairytales.Can you find the bears chairs that Goldilocks tested, Jack's beanstalk or rapunzels tower?
Would you like to try to grow your own beanstalk? Plant a bean to take home like Jack and watch it grow tall. There is fresh baking to sample from the volunteers on Monday 17 February. On Tuesday 18 - Thursday 20th February, 11am - 2pm, join us for a storyelling session.
Start to get outdoors in 2020
Can you spot any emerging spring flowers on the spring spotter trail? The garden will be filled with new snowdrops and other spring bulbs, with the daffodils also starting to sprout up from the ground. Get muddy making a messy meal in the mud pie kitchen and be on the lookout for some tempting puddles.
Fancy a winter walk? Then put on your walking boots or wellies for a family walk around the estate to see Ormesby Hall in it’s winter glory as you cross the farmland.
Inside the hall
In the old servant’s wing the surprise discovery of model railways and Thomas the tank engine always delights young visitors who are fascinated by the running trains. They can even take control and push the buttons to control Thomas and his friends on the interactive layout. Families can get creative and enjoy some playtime in the new family space or relax with a book in the second hand bookshop.
Whatever the weather this February half-term Ormesby Hall has plenty to do inside and out.
