Kettering Manor House Museum is holding an action-packed week of activities for youngsters during the half-term break.

Kettering Museum and Art Gallery is offering a week full of arts and craft activities which draw upon the rich history of the ancient Egyptians.

There will be lessons about mummification, craft sessions where children can make scary mummys or a sarcophogus pencil case and even treasure jars.

The following sessions are being held:

Make a Scary Mummy

Tuesday, October 29, 11am & 2pm

Craft a Mosaic Decoration

Wednesday, October 30, 11am & 2pm

Decorate an Egyptian Sarcophagus Pencil Box

On both of the half-term Saturdays there will be a free drop-in craft activity available, where youngsters can make their own hieroglyphic door hanger.

Workshops are charged at £3 per child, £2 with a Kettering Leisure Pass, or free to Young Friends of Kettering Museum and Art Gallery.

Workshops last about one hour and booking is essential.

Activities are suitable for children aged three or over.
