Keeping Occupied at Home

Let's All Create Activity Pack

"Let's All Create" is a fun interactive pack with loads of exciting activities for children to get involved in at home.  Activities in this pack have been gathered from many different cultural and creative organisations and are designed to be fun for all ages. Children can have fun with activities such as making cut-out creations, or making a museum in a jar with things you have got at home! Just print the document below.

Many of the activities in the pack have been created by artists and facilitators living and working in the region and this collaborative effort has been made possible thanks to the energy and commitment of all of the cultural organisations featured, as well as the financial support of Festival Bridge, Norwich University of Arts and Norfolk County Council.

Favourite Places Lockdown Drawing and colouring competition

We have taken images of some of our favourite places and buildings in King's Lynn and turned them into a fun colouring competition.

The competition has two categories - Drawing and Colouring.

Drawing category - Children can hand draw their favourite building straight from the image on your computer, simply pick your favourite place to bring up on the screen and start copying it. If your child wishes to colour it in afterwards that is optional.

Colouring category - Children can colour in their favourite building at home, using paints, felt tips or anything they like, feel free to get creative with glitter or feathers! Simply print your favourite place and get started.
