Young visitors to a family day at the RAF Museum Cosford next week can take part in fun Christmas activities organised by students at City of Wolverhampton College.

Youngsters can make reindeer food, Christmas cards, paper snowflakes and cotton wool snowmen, as well as dress up as a pilot or member of airline cabin crew at the event on Wednesday 25 November.

They can also tuck-in to healthy fruity snacks provided by Tesco at Madeley and, whilst the little ones are having fun, mums can enjoy a bit of pamper time and get skincare and make-up tips courtesy of beauty experts from Boots.

The activities have been organised by students studying for a range of early years qualifications at the college’s Wellington Road campus, to promote the benefit of play on learning and development to parents, and to test the planning, organisational and team work skills they are learning on their course

Julie Brierley, education assistant at RAF Museum Cosford, said: “The family fun day is all about aiding children’s learning and development whilst having fun and getting into the Christmas spirit.

“The students have run a number of family days at the museum and they continually add new activities, meaning there is even more on offer this year to keep our young visitors entertained.  We hope local families will join us on the day and enjoy some stress-free festive fun in the build up to Christmas.”

The event runs from 12.30pm to 2.30pm and all parents or carers with children under the age of five are welcome to attend.  To register for the free event email the RAF Museum Cosford access and learning team on learning-cosford@rafmuseum.org or call 01902 376243.
