We were lucky enough to be invited to Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, in Halifax this weekend as it was hosting a promotion for the Little Live Pets.
As soon as we arrived – before we had even entered the main building – our boys were off exploring the sand pit and musical instrument made of drain pipes.
Once we got inside we were given a map of activities and we set off to look at the Little Live Pets. They are the must-have toy of this summer – birds and butterflies that are colourful and respond to your touch. The Pet Birds come in six colours and with sing, chirp and tweet
whereas the butterflies flap and flutter their wings on the palm of your hand.
There were activities such as colouring in and face painting here too.
Then we moved on to discover the rest of the museum – it’s amazing and clearly very popular! It’s very much a hands on place and activities are designed for children to get involved although in our case, Dad also got VERY involved and enjoyed it as much as our boys especially the Sound Space as Mr sixdegrees is a drummer so they all enjoyed making music together.
We also took a photo of ourselves and changed our features – very attractive, I’m sure you’ll agree…
The Global Garden was a lovely area where we were encouraged to think about different regions – desert, the countryside, ice caps – we built an igloo and looked at how much water we use in our daily activities.
We also had a taste of Munchkin dressing as a postal worker in the Post Office and doing the shopping in the Living & Working Together zone.
There is definitely plenty to do within the two storey Eureka building – but the fun doesn’t stop there as the large sandpit and story tent continue the fun outside, giving little people the chance to burn of some energy.
