Mammoths and Mask Making Summer Fun

My name is Emma and I’m one of the Interpretive Guides here at Creswell Crags. I’ve worked here for just over three year now and everyday is different. With it being the school summer holidays at the moment lots of events have been going on in addition to our tours, including our craft events.

The fantastic playground at Creswell Crags


Each week there’s been a different craft activity, and in between my tours I went to have a look. The children were making fantastic Ice Age masks of all different kinds of Ice Age animals, like reindeer, mammoth and bison. Looking around I could tell that the cave lion was the most popular animal! I thought I’d have a try myself but I’m not the most artistic person around.

The two volunteers who were looking after the activity were doing a great job and the kids had a really good time. Hopefully I’ll be working when the next craft activity is on and I can have a go at making some finger puppets and some Ice Age clothes.
