at the WEALD and DOWNLAND OPEN AIR MUSEUM WEST SUSSEX
Wonderful Wednesdays are fun-packed activity days for children, which take place every Wednesday in August.
ABOUT WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS
Each Wonderful Wednesday has a theme based on the elements – water, earth, fire and air – with a ‘best of the elements’ day on 31 August. There are lots of opportunities to get hands-on and activities will vary, but are planned to include:
Air: Make a mini-windmill, have a go at archery and enter the mini-parachute challenge
Earth: Have a go at wattling, daubing, bricklaying and create designs in chalk, charcoal and sand.
Fire: Try blacksmithing (for children aged 8 years and over), a singing kettle challenge and fiery face mask.
Water: Find out about water transportation, flotation and make your own periscope.
