Spring Break Family Fun
Trying to find something fun to do with the kids during spring break? Plan a trip to Hagley! The second floor of the Visitor Center will feature fun activities for families and Easy Does It! will be open for visitors to explore. Activities begin at 11:30 a.m. and are included in admission.
The below activities will take place in the Visitor Center:
Marble Machine: “See how slow you can make a marble go” through your wonderful Marble Machine! Create a run for a marble that takes it from the top of a pegboard, down through twists, turns and tunnels, and finally into a cup. Ordinary wood scraps, cardboard tubes and pieces of pipe will never look the same after you use them to learn about gravity, momentum and other wonders of the physical world.
Soaring Satellites: Have a “lifting” experience by creating a “satellite” that hovers in a wind tube. By trial and error, figure out how to modify your craft to stay afloat in the center of the tube. What a fun way to learn the forces of flight!
Discover how mathematics is everywhere in nature.
Spend a summer Saturday at Hagley and enjoy fishing and wooden boat races on the Brandywine!
See the museum in a different way during a Sunday Stroll- take a leisurely walk on areas of our property normally only accessible by bus.
Light moves in predictable ways once you learn about the power of optics. Visitors will build their own light maze during this week’s activity.
Spend a summer Saturday at Hagley and learn how to make smoothies with our fender blender and how to make ice cream the old-fashioned way!
