Enjoy October Half Term at The Queen's Gallery and discover more about the amazing paintings in the Masterpieces from Buckingham Palace exhibition with our special activities.

In 'Spot The Dog', families will need to work together and look closely at the artworks to try to match the dogs on your cards to the dogs in the paintings. This is a fun and interactive activity and it is perfect for younger families, although older families will certainly enjoy it too.

For older children, our spooky trail will lead you through some of the more eerie and unusual elements and stories of some of the paintings.

Finally, create your own masterpiece using our colouring sheets inspired by the paintings. You could try to capture the same colours displaying in the amazing artwork, or you can let your imagination run wild and create something completely original!
