The First Emperor

Discover China’s entombed warriors

As well as the children’s trail, you can have more fun with paper cut-outs. Download the paper dolls sheet (right) and print it out. Colour in your warrior, horse and armour in bright colours. Draw a face on the warrior – make him as scary as you like. Cut out the warrior and horse and fold to make them stand up. Cut out the different suits of armour. Place the armour onto the warrior and change them to make him into different types.

About our children’s trails

Our children’s trails are available online or as free printed booklets/sheets at the Gallery. They are designed to engage young children aged 6-12 with selected objects and images in the Gallery and our exhibitions. They present looking and interpreting, drawing and writing activities for children to do in front of the art with extension ideas for activities away from the Gallery.

Many of these suggestions can be adapted for use at home or in the classroom, even if you can’t visit or the particular artworks are not on display.
