There is plenty going on to keep children entertained this February half term in Welwyn Hatfield.

Various activities will be taking place at Mill Green Mill and Museum, Welwyn Roman Baths, CW Entertainment in Welwyn Garden City, and the Jim McDonald Centre in Hatfield.

At Mill Green, monster themed activities are taking place, beginning with ‘monsters!’ on Tuesday, February 13, where children will get to make a mask of their favourite monster.

On Wednesday (14) children will get to create a collage picture and design their very own monster, and on Thursday (15) youngsters will get to make a clay monster model.

Each session is £3.50 per child.

Activity times are 10am, 11.15am, 1.15pm and 2.30pm, all lasting for one hour.

No booking is required, but please come at the start of the session as you will need a full hour to make your creations. Activities are suitable for ages 4+.

Parents and guardians must be on the premises at all times.

Over at Welwyn Roman Baths, on Monday, February 12, from 2pm-5pm there is a plant dyes activity where children can use inspiration from the spring bulbs starting to flower in the woodland to get creative with natural dyes made from plants.

The session is £3.50 per child, suitable for ages 4+, and no booking is required but places are limited.

Children can tunnel through time at the baths, which are open every day from Saturday February 10 – Sunday February 18 from 2pm-5pm.

Entry is £3.50 for adults and free for children.

Activities at the Jim McDonald Centre range from arts and crafts, to cooking and a bouncy disco, with multiple sessions taking place every day.

Activities are suitable for children aged five to 11 years old, and cost £4 per child.

Call 01707 270 066 to book your place.

Over at CW Entertainment, RollerCity is on every day, or if the cinema is more your scene, there are plenty of family friendly films being show.

Councillor Tony Kingsbury, executive member for policy and culture, said: “It can often be difficult to keep youngsters entertained during schools holidays, but with plenty of different activities taking place every day throughout the February half term there is sure to be something on that children will love.”
