If you're stuck for ideas on how to keep the kids entertained during half term week, here are a few suggestions to keep everyone busy next week.

The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea have recently announced their autumn/winter programme of events, and there are a few half term activities planned for children.

These half term workshops are Halloween inspired, one of which is Halloween Masks and Thriller Disco with artist Lucy Lilley - in which youngsters aged 5-10 years old can create a witch, goblin, fairy or vampire mask using recycled materials and then dance away the afternoon in the disco.

Also at the gallery, Ragdoll Monsters with artist Arwen Roberts brings out the creative side of children aged 6-12 years, as they learn to weave a scary monster using recycled fabrics and textiles. Booking is essential for the workshops so please contact the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery to avoid disappointment.

Don't forget to check out what the seven different museums in Wales, Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, have on at the moment.

Arts highlights include the recently opened new gallery space and the Elizabeth Fritsch display of ceramics at the National Museum in Cardiff; a Keepsakes exhibition at St Fagans; while at the National Wool Museum there's an exhibition of Julia Griffiths Jones' work and Warp and Weft 2 - a display of the work of weavers from Wales and England.

For further ideas on what to do in the half term holiday, take a look on the BBC Wales Nature and BBC Wales History blogs.
