Make a Mini-Beast
We're heading out into nature this half-term, and at the Museum we're busy keeping our grounds – which is like our garden- in tip top condition. Of course, being outside comes with lots of creepy crawlies!
When you go outside, have a look around and see what you can see! Have a dig in the soil and see what you can find – it might not be coal like the miners would dig up, but you might find some mini-beasts who help keep the soil healthy and provide food for birds.
Have a go at making your own mini beasts!
What you need:
