Kids can play, create, learn and discover with fun-filled online games, activity sheets, and print-out and make templates.

Programs Coordinator Annalice Creighton, said the museum’s online children’s activities not only provide hours of fun and creativity but also have a strong learning element.

“The topics cover science, the natural environment/marine biology, archaeology, astronomy, history, art and design – all things inspired by the sea and our exhibitions.”

“The Voyage for example is the museum’s most popular educational online game and is based on real convict voyages. Players make decisions, solve problems and deal with conflicts on a perilous journey across the globe.

The craft ideas feature easy step-by-step guides and include projects such as making prehistoric sea monster pet rocks, a steampunk ‘socktopus’, a fizzy carrot submarine to a curiosity jar filled with treasures, plus many more.

With a focus on re-use and recycling, they are made with materials that are easily accessible and found within the house or the back garden, providing a great solution for a stay-at- home holiday.
