About this Event

Join us this summer holiday for a 45-minute* craft session with your family. Each child will receive a bag with five themed craft activities.  


Get moving, get crafting! This week’s theme is Transport!  

Build a balloon car, create a parachute and watch your plane spin down to land.

Your ticket also includes a visit to the museum, admission to the museum is the 'doors open' time of your ticket.  There is a one-way system in place that families must follow *families must arrive at Play + Invent within 10 minutes of their session start time.  You can continue with your museum visit after the craft session has ended. 
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have made changes to how we run our family events. We want to make sure they are as safe as possible. Some of the changes you will see are: 
- Fewer tables with lots of space around 
- You won't be sharing your table with anyone but those within your bubble, please only book seats on one table 
- Spaces will be cleaned and sanitized between each session 
- Adults will be asked to wear a face-covering 
- Our staff will work from a distance, but will still be there if you have any questions
