2. Catch a kid's movie at Vjunior

With up to an hour playtime before the movie including hot wheel car tracks, mega blocks, giant scrabble and colouring in, not to mention a giant slide to shoot down IN the movie theatre, and bean bag chairs, you can't go wrong with a visit to Vjunior! This is the perfect outing for a rainy or exceptionally hot day.

3. Have a whale of a time at Scienceworks' Little Kids' Day In

On Monday 6 February at 10am, Scienceworks will host the first Little Kids’ Day In of the year. The theme for this event will be a Deep Sea Disco, and will feature a stellar line-up of play-based activities and shows.



Little Kids' Day In, is free entry for kids, and adults are $14.

4. Keep cool with a play in the interactive suburban 'car wash' in the beautiful gardens of the NGV

On until April, the 2016 Architecture Commission, designed by Melbourne-based M@ STUDIO Architects, titled Haven’t you always wanted…? is a light and bright interactive installation, which resembles a car wash.

Complete with bright pink astroturf, each of the five ‘bays’ replicates stages of a car wash, with hanging curtains of red plastic, and cool water sprays to run around in when the weather heats up.

This is a completely free activity, and is loved by all ages.

More info HERE.

5. Enjoy a cultural play in the Play Pod at the beautiful State Library of Victoria

The State Library of Victoria is a beautiful building to visit. There's even more reason to enjoy Melbourne's central library with your children, because there's a courtyard (undercover) dedicated to kids books and related activities.



The Play Pod at the State Library of Victoria is filled with floor cushions, light box play, a small selection of toys, building blocks, crafts and even dress-ups!

The summer theme of the Play Pod is inspired by Gus Gordon’s Herman and Rosie, dedicated to all the great things found in New York City.

The Play Pod is completely free to enjoy and is open 10am to 4pm daily.
