Shrine Kids

Young imaginations are being inspired by the stories and artefacts of the past as part of the Shrine Kids anytime program.

Aimed at children 4–8, the activities assists in making a visit to the Shrine more engaging for a younger visitor. Young participants are relishing the opportunity to apply their natural curiosity and imaginings to the more than 100 years of fascinating history contained within the Shrine.

The four different Shrine Kids activity cards provide the starting point for fresh perspectives. Children are asked to consider and conjure their creative responses to a range of questions related to different elements of the Shrine. 

There are four activities in the program to choose from:

  • Unlock the Secrets!
  • Discover How Things Work!
  • Use Your Imagination!
  • Solve the Mysteries!

The learning principles that support Shrine Kids stem from the concept of play being integral to effective teaching and learning. In addition to the learning benefits behind Shrine Kids, the activities provides a great opportunity for families to come together and experience and learn together.  You can collect your Shrine Kids activity diary from the Visitor Centre.

To further enhance your child's experience, Shrine Explorer kits are also available for borrowing.
