World at Home for the Family

Lots of pictures for you today! Tuesday and Wednesday saw our The World at Home family days take over the Geffrye Museum, and I think we can safely say that a good time was had by all. Here is a sample of what went on:

Scents of the World - making pomanders to take home
Mixing fragrances in Scents of the World

Tales from the Deep - handling 300 year old tea bowls and saucers (lucky children - we haven't been allowed to do this!)

Tales from the Deep - retelling the story of the Ca Mau shipwreck using shadow puppets. Truly impressive.
Tales from the Deep - concentrating hard at the OHP
Lunchtime at the museum in the sunshine
Company's Coming - baking Turkish biscuits. They smelt amazing!
Company's Coming - tasty biscuit mixture
Company's Coming - the finished product!

Printed Patterns - making prints using fabric paint

Printed Patterns - even our youngest visitors joined in

Printed Patterns - some of the finished prints. They will all be stitched together to make a banner

Fantastic Fans - remember we told you about Japanese uchiwa? Some of the children at yesterday's family day made their own to take home with them

Another Fantastic Fan

Tea Leaf Reading - enjoying a nice cup of Early Grey

Tea Leaf Reading - finding out what different symbols in the tea leaves mean
 There are more photos over on our Flickr site. Were you there? See if you can find yourself!
