We’ve planned a terrific range of fun holiday activities.

Some have a charge, age restriction and require you to book and pay in advance. In addition to these events, we offer ‘snack-tivities’ (free drop-in activities) for visitors.

Free drop-in programmes:

Back in the Day ….. Experience life as it was 100 years ago! Dress up in our early 19th century costumes then take your own photograph; grab some string and try your hand at the art of candle-making; step onto a WW1 battlefield with a “makeup effects” workshop on creating pretend wounds and bandaging. (Free)

Old School ….. It’s class-time in the holidays!! Sure, but this is one lesson you won’t want to miss. Join the school roll at the historic Awahou South Schoolhouse and see what school was like in the olden days. Write with ink or slate and stay onside with the teacher! (numbers limited; lessons at 11am, 12 noon and 1pm)
(Donation, ages 6+)

Put Yourself in the Picture ….. Challenge yourselfie! We have taken photographs of locations around Te Manawa; see if you can find the locations and then put yourself in the picture by taking a selfie. (Free)

Paid programmes include: A Stitch in Time, Mythical Creatures Art Workshop, Choc-a-block and Offline Origami!
