Kids are getting crafty at the Maritime Museum this February half-term with a whole host of creative activities to keep them entertained.

From 14 to 22 February, between 12-3.30pm, budding marine biologists can make their very own mini eco-systems by building a magnificent marine mobile. Then on 15 February, between 12-3.30 pm, children of all ages can get creative and learn amazing art techniques from local artists Kim Pilgrim, Sarah Jane Kyte and Kathy Wray, and be a part of a gigantic work of art. And best of all these activities are free with a Museum ticket.

February also sees the launch of the Maritime Museum's brand new Art Ship, where kids can sail through a world of quizzes, word searches and creative materials - testing their thinking and creative skills before taking their art work home.

And then on the Sunday before everyone goes back to school (22 February) the Maritime Museum is showing the amazing animated movie Atlantis: The Lost Empire. As part of the monthly Movie Magic activity days, kids can create their very own under-the-sea Zoetrope animations, design a submarine badge, and then follow the Atlantis trail, before watching the Disney movie. All for just £2 per child with a Museum ticket.

Don't forget that if you pay once to visit the South West Visitor Attraction of the Year you can return as many times as you like for 12 months. So, with so much happening over the half-term week, you and your family will be able to join in the fun again and again.
