These free creative activities will keep the kids’ minds in tune

Parents looking to keep the kids entertain and informed these school holidays should head to the Nicholson Museum. The University of Sydney’s centre for antiquity will host a series of free kids’ workshops and interactive classes throughout the July break.

They can explore Indigenous culture this NAIDOC Week through art workshops and a free tour of the Macleay collection on July 10. On July 12 the kids can turn trash into treasure with a free art class where they’ll be inspired by ancient cultures to help them construct artworks out of waste (you'll need to book a spot for this one). Or, journey to ancient Rome on July 19 for a day of centurion dress-ups, artefact investigations and Roman-themed arts and crafts.
