Newcastle museum

Week two of the school holidays and because Byron works from home we are trying to find as many things to do away from the house without breaking the bank account. Newcastle museum is half an hour drive away and free- perfect!

Sian and Rhiannon spent two hours making puppets out of recycled rubbish. Then we went to see a scientist demonstrating some simple but exciting experiments. With test-tubes, rubber gloves, food colouring and lots of dry ice she had the kids jaws hitting the floor in no time!

Finally upstairs to the "Supernova" floor. A hands-on science center with 80 activities and interactive displays that demonstrate smple scientific facts.

I had to drag them away at closing time. This will be a great place to bring Alex and Myles when they come over next Easter.

We had been gone so long that Byron was pacing the driveway when we finally arrived home. He thought we had got lost on the way home (or maybe he just wanted his tea....!)
