Youngsters got the chance to make their own clay models and cave paintings, to experience life as a caveman.

“The highlights were seeing the kids’ finished cave paintings and the mini shelters they had made out of straws and plasticine.

“They really created some great designs. Staff and volunteers enjoyed dressing up as stone age characters and handling the replica stone axes.”
