Entertain the kids these school holidays at The Abbey Museum
Beat the school holiday boredom with the Abbey Museum April School Holiday Program. The Museum is well known for it's wonderful promotion and education of living history, and children young and old enjoy participating in the hands on activities.
The writer enjoyed a fantastic day out at the Museum a couple of years ago at their Renaissance school holiday program, and I can honestly say it's not just for children, the activities are enjoyable for all ages, and in fact are a really great way to spend some quality time with the family.
Kids do you want to mummify Mummy? Or perhaps Mummy wants to wrap the kids up in bandages just like a real Egyptian mummy, albeit only temporary and I'm afraid it won't guarantee the kids will give peace and quiet! But the awesome archaeological dig might give mums and dads some time out while the kids are thoroughly preoccupied or get them enjoying some hands on history with clay sculpting, building pyramids, arts and crafts, writing in hieroglyphics and much more.
You're welcome to bring your own picnic lunch and cold drinks. For any questions on what to bring or not bring, or activities detail, please feel free to ring the Museum on 5495 1652 or check out their website.
Note that parental supervision will be required; this is activity based awesome fun, not a holiday vacation care program.
