Give yourself a hand: See the exhibition Natural, Unnatural, Supernatural and then do a three-part activity to transform your appearance:

• First, you can craft a new pair of hands—choose from three different templates that you can customize.
          -Cut, fold and paint new LEGO® hands.
          -Layer and glue together felt, yarn and fake fur to make fuzzy bear paws.
          -Stretch rubber gloves over a template for webbed flipper-like fingers. 

• Second, mix and match different wearable animal parts to morph into a supernatural creature!

• Three—you have to go to Spalding House to make your transformation complete!
