Drawing inspiration from our current Heritage Collections exhibition ‘Fun & games’ come along to Tāmaki Pātaka Kōrero - Central City Library to make your own Christmas-themed sock puppet!

Socks, googly eyes and other fun accessories provided.

Afterwards, head to the second floor to enjoy our free exhibition of games, books, photos, manuscripts, and more from the Sir George Grey Special Collections.

Read an instruction book for board games from 1786, see some nineteenth-century tin soldiers with a royal connection, learn about the hula hoop craze of the 1950s, compare Māori and Pākeha versions of mū tōrere (draughts), and try your hand at putting on a sock puppet show. Fun for anyone who loves to play games, young or old.

Come along with your whānau, learn about some old games and some new ones, dress up, and stay and play!
