Project 2: Nature Trail
Join Pip & Kim on a nature trail, exploring the world outside and discovering how nature designs living
things. See how many shapes, colours and patterns you can find and check them off the list.
You can either download your nature trail activity sheet using the link below or if you would like one of our activity packs, email us and we will arrange a time for you to collect. As well as all our activity sheets, the pack contains a fab Wildlife Spotter Guide (thank you North Devon Coast AONB) to help you find and identify our local wildlife.

Project 4: Shrunken Head
Great Uncle Mervyn encountered many curious people and weird and wonderful artefacts on his explorations. The Palmer Room at Ilfracombe Museum, which is named after Great Uncle Mervyn Palmer, has some fascinating discoveries on display. Some of these were collected by Great Uncle Mervyn and others donated by members of the public.
Pip & Kim love to look at these objects from far off lands and the more curious and peculiar the better.
Pip’s favourite is the shrunken head from South America! Even though it looks really creepy it is not really a human head but a tourist souvenir made from goat skin and monkey hair. If you would like to make your very own shrunken head we have put together an activity sheet to show you how.
To help you, we also have activity packs, containing cotton wool and grass seeds, here at the Museum for you to collect. You will need to provide your own “head”!
