Children’s Activities

Our friend Sandy Panner (left) has created some fun activities which you are welcome to download for your children. Some are more challenging than others, so they cover a range of ages and abilities. Each sheet features some simple facts about the Prestonpans campaign which you could help your child to learn and remember.

Two activities are designed to support visits to (or online explorations of) the Prestonpans Tapestry. If you are not able to visit the Tapestry in person at one of its touring exhibitions, you can download the full slideshow here, or watch an animated film of the whole tapestry here.

All the activity sheets are free to download and you can use them as often as you like. There are links at the bottom of the page for .pdf downloads, or you can click and save the .jpegs below. If you want to save ink, set your printer to print in greyscale.

We love to see photos of people using them, so why not share the fun with us by sending us a picture on social media (@Prestonpans1745)?
