This February at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, bring the whole family along for some fantastic crafty events starting from the 17th February.

On Monday, children can make their own creature from clay.

Tuesday is a special ‘Magnificent Mammals’ day. Come and find out about native land and marine mammals that live in the area. Explore the skulls and learn all about the mammals through our hands on activities, then paint one of our mammal themed craft items to take home as a memento of your day.

Wednesday is our ‘Upcycling’ and junk modelling event where you can let your imagination run wild and transform every day ‘junk’ into something fresh, funky and useful!

Thursday will be slate painting, let your creative juices flow and recreate a favourite animal or plant on a piece of our local slate to take home.
