The National Print Museum in Beggars Bush Barracks is planning a mid-term week full of fun for kids!

From Tuesday the 31st of October to Friday the third of November, the museum will run daily craft workshops for children to enjoy on their school break.

On Tuesday the 31st, there are two special Halloween workshops – Mini Monster Printmaking for 4 – 7 years at 11.30am to 12.30pm, and Spooky Bookmaking for 8 – 12 years from 14.30pm to 15.30pm. Booking is required for these workshops, which cost €12.50 per child, and the fee can be paid on the Shop section of the museum’s website.

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, the museum will hold a Family Drop-in Workshop each day from 14.00 – 16.00, which will be suitable for all the family. No advance booking is required for these workshops, and the charge of €5.00 per child can be paid on the day. Parents and guardians go free!

On Wednesday and Friday, the Family Drop-in Workshop will be Fingerprint Fun, where children can learn how to use simple finger printing to make a whole range of fun characters and pictures, and create easy and unique prints of people, animals and vehicles. On Thursday, the Family Drop-in Workshop will be Brilliant Bookmarks where children can design their own personalised bookmark using printing stamps, markers, pencils, and crayons, and decorate it with stickers, glitter, gems, ribbons and feathers.

Why not join in the fun at the museum and make some special masterpieces this Mid-Term? An inclusive and very budget friendly option for all the family.
