30 Days to Hands On Play: Dressing Up

Baobao and I love to explore small museums, especially when they have child friendly areas. One of our favourites is the William Morris Gallery. It is dedicated to the life and works of the famous designer William Morris and based inside his old home. Activities for children include picture rubbing, building with blocks, drawing based on William Morris' work and dressing up, as well as monthly family days and toddler/pre-school groups. 


Today we came to dress up. Baobao currently loves the colour green, so this green jacket was instantly her favourite. She decided to wear it while exploring the different toys in the dress up area - blocks, puppets and dragons.

 

Then we explored a temporary exhibit of cardboard and papier mache sculptures, based upon William Morris' ideas around factories (PLANTWORKS). Baobao especially enjoyed the flying eye sculpture.
