YMCA Half-term Activities for 4-11 year olds

‘Days of Old’ is the theme for the Half-Term fun days for children at the YMCA. Thursday’s Clay and Jewels session was fully booked but there are still places on Friday for the Castle events. The morning kicks off with a visit to Lewes Castle where your young knights and damsels will have the opportunity to visit the site, dress up in Norman costumes and join in olde worlde quizzes and games. If they misbehave then a stint in the Stocks should sort them out. After a packed lunch (provided by you) they will head back to the YMCA where they will be making Castles out of junk to bring back to take centre place on your mantelpiece.

If you haven’t tried them before, the kids’ activity sessions at the YMCA are a treat. Run by an enthusiastic and experienced group of organisers, the sessions vary between carefully planned activities and free time where children run about outside in the garden, kick a ball or play imaginative games as part of a fun little gang. They also run breakfast club and after-school club sessions for working parents. Hot news is that they are running an Arts Council funded Art and Fashion week in the summer, which will finish with a fashion show. Parents of dressing-up loving girls and boys should book into that one as soon as possible, as it will certainly sell out. JW
