Observe Sun-printing, do Leaf-rubbing and draw Sea shells
The National Museum of Australia is an interesting and interactive place to learn about Australian culture and history. They have arranged some nature discovery activities for children these school holidays from 10-13 April and from 18-21 April, 2017.
Take a short guided tour of the National Museum's unique nature collections, including 19th-century seaweed albums from Tasmania and Port Phillip. Then go to the Discovery Space and get ready to add some beautiful collections to your own nature journal provided by the staff.
There is a collection of leaves and branches that can be further discovered by using magnifying glasses or better yet, request to get some sun prints of them and stick them in your journal before you leave. Sea shells of different shapes can be drawn in the journal and leaf rubbing art activities can also be enjoyed.
