Children's activities from South Yorkshire museums

The Haven team were recently sent a Sensory Scavenger Hunt from Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust.

When we checked their Twitter feed before sharing the scavenger hunt with you, we realised that they'd recently put together tons more activities from around the South Yorkshire region...and we thought you'd love to know about them!
