Wondering what to do with the kids for the school holidays? A little trip to the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka - 102 Stawell Street South, Ballarat, might be the order of the day. They have so much happening these school holidays that's free, and some incurring a small cost or a gold coin donation. These activities are supervised and hands on for kids of all ages, and run from 27 June to 8 July 2016 as follows.

M.A.D.E. will be closed all day on 5 July 2016

Treasure Trail - 27 June to 8 July (M.A.D.E. Closed 5 July) 10am to 5pm.
Kid's Bling Talk - 27 June, 11am AND 2pm
Hold Some Gold - 28 June, 11am to 12.30pm
Bush Flavours Session - 29 June, 1am to 2pm
Voting Workshop - 30 June, 11am AND 2pm
Colouring Comp - 6 July, 10am to 3pm
Sensory Boxes - 7 July, 11am to 2pm
Sausage Sizzle - 8 July, 1pm to 2pm

Who doesn't love a treasure hunt or a Kid Curated Corner instead of the naughty corner? The 19th Century BLING session is bound to surprise, that them there gold comes from the earth and is not always shiny and new when found. Getting up close with the treasures and being able to hold it has got to be priceless.

Between colouring competitions and sensory boxes, there'll also be a little voting workshop to introduce the kids to the important part of democracy in a fun and engaging way.

We all know about hungry tummies, especially when kids are out and about, they love that little treat. The amazing Saltbush Kitchen will be stocked with yummy goodies on site to stave your cravings. In fact, the bush flavours session will be initiated at the Saltbush Kitchen and will explore our Australian bush flavours and ingredients. It's going to be a sight, smell and taste kind of moment.

On the last day, why not celebrate the end of the school holidays with a sausage sizzle for a gold coin donation.

M.A.D.E. run programs throughout the year, with tours and education resources aimed at the school aged children.

M.A.D.E encourages active citizenship and demonstrates to students that one can participate in democracy in a variety of ways. The 'Giving It' resources focuses on 'giving' which is an important action to create a more equal society. This resource looks at which groups have less access to rights and public services and what we as a community can do to help. All an important part of learning. To not miss out on this and other activities, make sure you join their mailing list.
