A fun activity for children aged 5 - 16, to make a mask of their favourite animal. Younger children can have a go at colouring in activities or just play with some toys

Both activities will last between 30 minutes and an hour.

Lead Member for Community Development Councillor Dick Jones said: "The council is pleased to be able to offer events throughout the year as part of the museum's play programme. If the activity looks busy when you arrive, why not go and explore the museum - take the opportunity to enjoy some of the exhibitions on display and test yourself by completing the musuem's very own quiz."

The event is being delivered by Playworks.uk as part of Project Panda, bringing free play activities into North Devon. Funding has been provided by the Big Lottery Fund.
