On Monday 7 August, Scienceworks will host their next Little Kids' Day In, this time celebrating Australia's Indigenous culture.

Little Kids' Day In: First Peoples celebrates National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day.

Scienceworks and SNAICC, the national non-government peak body representing the interests of these children, will host this special event for preschoolers on 7 August 2017.

Pop in with your little ones and enjoy traditional games such as marngrook, music and stories that have entranced children for thousands of years.

Craft a bush bouquet, try your hands at some ochre panting on bark & leaves and make collages out of natural materials; gumnuts, seed pods and reeds.

In the planetarium there will be a free 15 minute show on Indigenous Constellations based around the stars & the night sky and a Possum Hunt Puppet Show will bring cultural stories to life.

Lastly, enjoy dance and music and get your face painted as an Aussie animal.

The First People’s Little Kids Day In is an event to introduce families to Indigenous cultures and will also provide a special access for Indigenous children, including those in playgroups run by the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency.

The Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People Andrew Jackomos will open the event at 11 am on 7 August.

Where: Scienceworks, 2 Booker Street Spotswood.
When: 10am - 2pm. Monday 7 August, 2017.
