Free hands-on craft sessions for kids

There's plenty to do around Melbourne this winter for families and kids. One of the city's top attractions is serving up a free activity program this July. Grab the kids and head over to the Shrine of Remembrance for some hands-on craft sessions inspired by the Second World War.

Due to the scarce resources during that difficult period, people salvaged and recycled what they could, often making, doing and mending much of what they needed. Kids are encouraged to get creative with a variety of used materials and repurpose them, just like the Second World War generation did. The new creations may be used or worn like a new piece of jewellery.

This program has been designed for children aged 4 to 10 years and accompanied by a parent or adult guardian. Each session starts at 10.30am and runs for an hour. The meeting point is at Reception in the Visitor Centre. Participation is free but bookings are essential and via the website.

You can also take this opportunity to visit the free permanent exhibitions in the Gallery and walk to the top of the Shrine for fantastic panoramic views of Melbourne city, the botanic gardens and St Kilda Road.
