Melbourne Museum and Biostime introduce their Summer Play Box program aimed at toddlers.
Play Box at the Melbourne Museum are taking us outside for summer for a nature-based play for toddlers. The set-up includes planter boxes, play tents and a wooden kitchen. Children are invited to learn and make sense of the world with their five senses. Each play tent includes a box with items and a suggested guideline to encourage children to explore and learn.
This is a hosted event, running before the museum opens, which allows free play and learning for the first half of the program. We were excited to learn that most birds, including the Kookoburra, do not have a good sense of smell! To conclude, the hosts engage with the children by planting seeds, singing and dancing.
This wonderful program is offered Tuesday to Saturday 9am-10am and includes museum entry from 10am. It is suitable for ages 1-3 and spaces are limited per session. Whilst the program is offered outdoors, it is moved to an alternative location if the weather is deemed unsuitable.
Where: Melbourne Museum , 11 Nicholson Street, Carlton
When: Tuesday to Saturday 9am-10am
