Inspire young imaginations with stories and artefacts of the past with the Shrine Kids any-time activities. Collect an Explorer Kit from the Visitor Centre to enhance your next family visit.

Four different Shrine Kids activity cards provide a starting point for fresh perspectives of the historic Shrine of Remembrance and it's fascinating stories and objects. Children are asked to consider and conjure their creative responses to a range of questions related to different aspects of the Shrine. Armed with an Explorer Kit, make your next visit to the Shrine a memorable one with something the whole family can enjoy.

There are four activity cards to choose from:

  • Unlock the Secrets!

Explorer Kit satchels include:

  • Finger puppet

  • Picture Book

When you have finished exploring, place all the items back in the satchel and return the kit to the Visitor Centre.

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.
