Welsh Activities to Watch Out for in February

Embrace the rich heritage, explore scenic landscapes, and partake in unique events that make February truly special in Wales.

WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre 

Mudfest

10th – 18th February 2024

Spend your half term immersed in minibeast mud hunts, magnificent games, untamed crafts, and an endless supply of mud.

Everyone can interact with nature and learn about the wonderful properties of mud for play and wildlife via hands-on activities suitable for all ages and skill levels. They’re talking about amazing mud kitchens, muddy sculpting tales, barefoot treks, muddy obstacle courses, muddy tug of war, mud-slinging, and a whole lot more mud. You will be able to use mud to paint, search for little creatures in the mud, and make seed bombs! You guessed it: mud!

The Royal Mint

Make your own fossil

15th – 16th February 2024

Participants can seize the opportunity to craft their own prehistoric masterpieces in the immersive event area. Guided by a knowledgeable ranger, individuals will delve into the process of creating a cast featuring their favourite dinosaurs, including the remarkable Stegosaurus, swift Diplodocus, and formidable T-Rex. After the experience, attendees can take home their personalized plaster fossil. The cost per fossil is just £5, or it is complimentary when included with a tour booking at The Royal Mint Experience on the same day.

This task takes about thirty minutes to complete. Children under the age of 16 must be supervised by an adult, and participation is open to all ages. Adults are welcome to participate without having to buy their own fossil pieces, but they are welcome to do so if they like. It is advised to plan this activity before your booked tour, as the plaster takes an hour to harden. Children will receive aprons, so it’s best to wear anything that you don’t mind getting muddy in.
