What is in a

Toy Day

  1. -Everyone makes their own authentic toy

  2. -Play with a selection of toys

  3. -Handle a range of original toys

How it works

  1. -Up to 60 pupils for a whole day

  2. -1/2 day making the toy

  3. -1/2 day exploring the collection


In one workshop the children are making a wooden toy whilst in this workshop they are looking at 200 years of childrens toys and playthings.

Some of the toys in the handling collection are originals and, therefore, these must be handled with care whilst directly supervised by an adult.  Others are replicas and may be handled in group situations.

A few weeks before the workshop we will send details of the collection so that each teacher can build a suitable lesson.
