Festive events for kiddies

Everyone knows that Christmas is a time for family, so do something special with the kids during your time on the Isle of Wight. There are plenty of festive activities going on that are simply perfect for children, with everyone from the under-fives to borderline teenagers catered for. Jump onto a ferry to Cowes before heading to one of the events below with the kids and get some quality family time in. 

Christmas Crafts at the Museum of Island Heritage

Newport's Museum of Island Heritage gives the little munchkins something to do while parents check out the exhibitions. The workshop is based around designing the perfect Christmas decorations for Mummy and Daddy, as well as gift ideas. It is entirely free to attend and entry to the museum itself is also free. Get along to Newport on December 14th for this fantastic event.

Stories with Santa

If your kiddies are aged four to eight, they'll absolutely love the Storytime Adventure with Santa taking place at Sandown Library on December 14th. Places are limited so booking ahead is essential, but organisers have promised an extra special storytelling session for those children who have been good this year.

Children's Christmassy morning

Also taking place on December 14th is the Children's Christmassy Morning, which will be happening at Lord Louis Children's Library. This is a great opportunity for holidaying families to come along for a festive rhyme time and they will perhaps even meet other parents and kids to spend the Christmas period with. There is no age restriction and participants will be invited to a Christmas Craft Session afterwards. Children under six must be accompanied by an adult. It's all entirely free for participants and the kids may even bring back a homemade gift for mum and dad if they attend the craft event.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801666528-ADNFCR
