Have you ever thought about why we have toys or the materials they were made from in the past? How have toys changed over time?

This workshop allows you to follow the toy making process from start to finish, looking at toys that were popular for Queensland children during the early 1900s and at the end you’ll have your own Push Pull toy!

The twist is, you will have to think wisely and try to make your toys from reused materials!

This is a drop-in session, no bookings are required. Recommended for ages 5+, adult supervision required.

  • Sunday 16 October, 11:00am – 1:00pm
