Or not quite. On Wednesday we went to a family event at Wandsworth library (put on by Wandsworth Museum) about toys from the past. It was great! Thought isn’t it shocking when you see toys from your own childhood in a museum..?!
M was dreading it would be a ‘look at things in glass cases’ event but it was all very hands-on. The girls started by making a kite out of one sheet of paper – I’ve never seen such a design and will be very interested to see if it works on the next windy day.
They also made puppets.
Then we had a play with lots of old fashioned toys (even some sheep knuckles that they would have used in Roman times). D liked the acrobat and M loved playing Nine Men’s Morris which she has since made and played at home.
We had a great time and I’m so glad we made the effort to come out of half-term hiding. 😉
