Scores of youngsters enjoyed the pancake-themed activities at City Museum in Southsea, yesterday.
They put together crafty pancakes made of cardboard with toppings made of tissue paper.
Alison McGrigor, from the museum, said: ‘It was a great day.
‘All the children had a lot of fun.
‘Around 70 dropped in to take part in the activities which is very good considering it was so sunny outside.
‘We had what we called a pancake race.
‘The children cut out cardboard pancakes and balanced them on top of their heads.
‘The better they got at balancing the more pancakes they added.
‘It was a great way to help them with their numeracy.
‘They also made their own crafty pancakes.
‘They stuck on lots of toppings – jam, berries and blueberries.
‘The pancakes looked delicious.’
But the fun for youngsters at the city’s museums during half-term does not end there.
From 1pm at City Museum today there is storytelling with Michael O’Leary focusing on objects in the A Hard Choice exhibition.
Tomorrow, Cumberland House Museum plays host to a dinosaur discovery day from 11am until 4pm.
