Back in the beginning of February the littlest one and I ventured over to Scienceworks Melbourne to check out a new monthly event they have started in 2012 – Little Kids’ Day In.
Scienceworks is not only popular with families, but it is an incredibly popular excursion destination for schools. Heading to Scienceworks during school hours means you are often sharing the space with a bus load of bigger kids.
The beauty of Little Kids’ Day In is that there are no school groups that day and the little kids can wander and explore with greater ease and less waiting.
Little Kids’ Day In – The Details
The Little Kids Day In is held the first Monday of the month from 10am – 3pm. There are a range of activities and displays on at particular times, so it is worth getting there earlier to catch them.
When: For reference the next few dates are:
- Monday 5 Mar 2012
- No April event
- Monday 7 May 2012
- Monday 4 Jun 2012
Where: Scienceworks and Melbourne Planetarium – 2 Booker St, Spotswood
Ages: This day is specially for kids aged 0 – 6 years, their parents and carers.
Bookings: Not required. But they do encourage you to organise your next playdate or parents meet-up during Little Kids’ Day In. They have even set up a Little Kids’ Day In Facebook event page that you can use to invite your friends.
Cost: Little kids are free and adults are $10. Additional charges apply for some exhibitions, Planetarium and Lightning Room shows. We didn’t go into any of these exhibitions as there was plenty for our little one to do before we needed to head home for our afternoon nap!
More info: You can check out the Scienceworks Melbourne website for more information.
We had the most fantastic time at the Little Kids’ Day In. It was particularly lovely for me and the little one as is it so rare for he and I to do activities like this where he gets to lead what we do, no bigger siblings for him to follow!
We had such a great time together at Little Kids’ Day In and it will be an activity we revisit soon.
