The other day my little sidekick and I hopped on a train and headed to Liverpool.
First stop The Walker Art Gallery and, as always, the obligatory sampling of the treats in the cafe took place straight away!
Feeling replenished we made our way around the gallery, looking at the artwork on display and came across the bold and bright activist signs and slogans by Lois Tierney. Using her wonderfully vibrant artwork as inspiration we coloured a mini LGBT+ placard of our own to take home.
We then headed to Big Art for Little Artists, which is a section of the gallery that is dedicated to children – lots of fun to be had here! We snipped, we stuck and made……….a Zebra snake!
After letting our creative juices flow we made the short walk down the road to The World Museum, where beasts, bugs and bones were the order of the afternoon! (We particularly like the Clore Natural History Centre area, as you get your paws on all sorts of fascinating objects – from an elephant’s skull to a snakeskin (after moulting!).)
Then there was just enough time to nip to the Central Library (which is sandwiched between the gallery and museum), cosy up and leaf through a good couple of picture books before heading back to the train station and home.
Oh, and of course, a day trip isn’t complete without fleecing mum in the gift shop!
