Get­ting in fes­tive spirit

A crafty Christ­mas was en­joyed by young vis­i­tors to Dum­fries and An­nan mu­se­ums over the weekend.

Staff and vol­un­teers got into the fes­tive spirit with glue, sticky-backed plas­tic amd re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als.

They en­cour­aged chil­dren to try mak­ing their own cards, dec­o­ra­tions and presents for Christ­mas.

From De­cem­ber 8 to Jan­uary 12, Dum­fries Mu­seum will be hold­ing free drop-in ses­sions for young peo­ple aged from five (must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult) from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm Tues­days to Satur­days.

The ses­sions are in­spired by the win­ter sea­son and the mu­seum’s ex­hi­bi­tions.

Among the ac­tiv­i­ties will be mak­ing chilly snow scene pic­tures; bird masks; de­sign a doll or dude out­fit; gallery trails, colour­ing and quiz sheets.
