Each month Scienceworks hosts the fabulous Little Kids' Day In and we get to be the lucky guests! This day is specifically for pre-schoolers and gives us a chance to hang out here without the big kids from the school groups plus expect to be treated to extra activities throughout the day too like rocket launches, parachutes, baby bath tub activities and other tailored activities for our 1-6yo's.
Check out some of Mamma's Top Tips for Visiting Scienceworks!
