Inspiration for your visit

Here are some activities that might capture the attention of your little ones during your visit to Temple Newsam:

  • Pick an object and see if others can guess it by using yes and no questions only.
  • Strike a pose like the paintings and sculptures you see.
  • Count all the dogs in paintings. There’s more than you think!
  • Copy some of the animal noises on the farm.
  • Study an object 30 seconds.  Close your eyes (no peeking!) – how much can you remember about it?
  • When you get home draw or paint your favourite thing about your day out.
