Magical Toy Museum

Your children will become toy experts as they enter the museum and bring toys from the past 100 years to life using their bodies and voices, before inventing their own original toy.

One facilitator visits your school in role as a museum curator, using drama activities such as role-play and tableaux to explore the different toys. They will visit different rooms in the museum to find out about different types of toys from the past century.

Types of toys children will look at:

  • Teddy bears (looking at bears up to 100 years old)
  • Dolls
  • Moving toys (wind up, springs, pull/push toys)
  • Inventing toys (children get the chance to imagine their own)

The children loved the workshop and were engaged the entire time. It was lovely to pretend to be different dolls and hear the children laugh so hard! The children learned a lot and were able to write a recount describing the different types of toys they saw and what they were made of. This workshop was great and I would highly recommend it to other schools.
