If you are thinking of taking the family away over February half term, then now is the time to start your research!
Whether you’re thinking of visiting the English Riviera or are fortunate enough to live in this beautiful part of the country, there are so many things to do with the family during February half term.
This February half term, delve into adventure on a guided tour of Kents Cavern, a place that was once home to your prehistoric ancestors and extinct animals! Their event over half term is ‘Origins Of Art’: People have been creating art for thousands of years. Way back in the Stone Age people were carving figurines, painting inside caves, making jewellery and even creating music!
- Create a piece of Stone Age art in the cave whilst listening to music played through a flute made from a Vulture wing bone, like one found in Isturiz cave in France.
- Check out the Palaeo Table in the Stone Age Zone and learn how Stone Age people made paint with ochre, how Stone Age people drilled holes in shells and teeth to make jewellery and discover the strange and familiar shapes that Stone Age people carved into stones.
- Create your own piece of art out of clay. Use your clay to make either a tooth for a necklace, fashion it into a piece of pottery that can be decorated or try and make your very own Stone Age inspired sculpture.
- Discover important conservation work being done to record all instances of historic graffiti inside the cave and see pictures of areas off the showcave path where the graffiti can be found. FIND OUT MORE
