While the cold winter weather is enough to make anyone retreat indoors, we have four boredom busters to cure the winter blues for your children these holidays. Head into the city via the train from Caroline Springs Station or stay local and enjoy everything Melbourne’s West has to offer these school holidays.
Create works of art at the National Gallery of Victoria
Take a trip into Melbourne’s CBD and visit the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) taking in eye catching exhibits that will be sure to entertain the kids.
Until Sunday 14 July, Alexander Calder’s workshop for littlies will provide your young ones with an abundance of fun with a variety of activities.
Inspired by Alexander’s work of art, the workshop space represents elements of his childhood including constructing cardboard animals and creating digital sculptures through a multimedia interactive touch screen.
