Sewerby Squirrels sessions in July

Sewerby Squirrels – held at Sewerby Hall and Gardens for under 5s and their families – is held in the Orangery on Mondays from 10-11.30am during East Riding term-time, and there are more sessions in July.

All the sessions feature themed activities for under 5s, based on seasonal events, Edwardian life, and exhibits which are on display at Sewerby Hall. Each session includes books to read, a sensory area and a quiet corner.

The theme on Monday, 1 July will be about the Edwardian Kitchen, where there is the chance to have a go at using a jelly mould, play with bread dough and get messy with flour. Participants are advised to come prepared with a change of clothes.

On Monday, 8 July there will be a sea-themed craft, with the opportunity to make a big sea picture together. Participants should bring a change of clothes because there will be paint and glue involved.

There will be a holiday story on Monday, 15 July where visitors can listen to the story, play parachute games and create a holiday suitcase collage to take home.

The sessions are included in normal admission prices for Sewerby Hall and Gardens whilst they apply.
