THINK the colour of cows is rather tame? Then take a trip to the Farmland Museum on the A10 near Stretham over the May half-term holiday and have a go at creating some colourful cows that stand out from the herd.
Curator Ann Wise said: “Don’t be put off by the rather tame colours of most cows you see in the fields; come and design your own.
“Pink cows, purple cows, punk cows, hippie cows; the only limit is your imagination. So come along, pick up a paintbrush, and give our cows a make over.”
Visitors to the cow painting family days on Tuesday and Thursday, May 28 and 30, can also hunt for Daisy the cow, and using the museum’s large fibreglass models to practice milking a cow, sitting on a cow, and learn how to recognise different breeds.
Ann added: “This is a really exciting and fun activity that will appeal to all children. How often do you get a chance to paint a cow any colour you want?!”
The colourful cow days run from 12noon to 4pm. The museum is open every day, and admission costs £5 for adults, concessions £4.00, children £3.50 (under 5s are free), Family Ticket £13, with reduced admission to the Farmland Museum for English Heritage members. Season tickets are also available
