Lynn Museum hosted a vintage packaging activity day on Tuesday 20, inviting children to explore packaging and graphic design from the 1940’s and recreate their own.
Children from 5-15 years enjoyed creating self-styled cardboard boxes inspired by WW2 packaging, whilst the adults chatted and reminisced about past products from their childhood.
Ruth Farnan, event organiser, said: “There was an incredible amount of creativity from the participants of the event, who came up with some really fantastic designs.
The event also proved interesting for our adult visitors, many of whom shared reminiscences while they watched their children and grandchildren’s creative work.”

This learning event was organised to help promote a set of exhibitions which are being launched by the Fens Museum Partnership in September. The exhibitions, called ‘Fenland Lives and Land’, will tour around Fenland Museums over the next year, illustrating how the landscape shaped the lives of Fenland people past and present.
