I SPY with my little eye, children and grown ups have been having springtime fun at Saffron Walden Museum.

More than 60 children and their parents took part in the I Spy Spring event on Tuesday, and more were due to take part yesterday (Wednesday).

Stuffed birds were viewed and the Bridge End Gardens were explored as the youngsters completed worksheets and a quiz.

Education Officer, Jenny Gibsone, said: "It was lovely to see so many people come along - I ended up having to print out more worksheets!

"It must have been quite hard as the grown-ups had to help the children find the answers. We also had stuffed swifts, swallows and housemartins on display.

"These are really useful learning aids, which are not usually on view in the museum because of space."

With their worksheets completed, the children made their way to the Bridge End Gardens.

"They were each given an I Spy book and they had to find insects and flowers," added

Ms Gibsone. "Each one they found earned them points and the winners received stickers.
