CREATIVE children are invited to create their own abominable snowmen at a fun-filled half term event.

Brave young cryptozoologists are challenged to follow a trail at Runcorn’s Norton Priory Museum to prove they know their yucky Yetis from their beastly Big Foots.

Youngsters will be asked to identify fur, fangs and footprints and listen for ferocious roars.

Learning and community manager, Susan Humphreys said: “Families are sure to have a ‘ice time this half term. There’s snow reason to be bored in the holidays with our abominal snowmen crafts.”

Children will be able to make their own Yeti or Big Foot to take home.

There will be messy play, edible gingerbread men and marshmallow monsters.

Abominable snowmen activities take place on Monday, February 17 and Tuesday, February 18, from 11am to 4pm.

With 900 years of history revealed in the museum and more than 40 acres of garden and woodland to explore, Norton Priory is a great day out for families.

Activities will go ahead whatever the weather. Refreshments are available in the Museum café.

Usual admission prices will apply and under 5's receive free entry.
