You’re invited to…Unwrapped Family Day at Second Home London Fields

We’re teaming up with Second Home London Fields, as part of their free family day at their newest space in London. We’re joining Musical Dots and Libreria for a day of family-friendly activities.

What activities are the Institute of Imagination running?

Families are invited to come and use their imagination and work together on creative inventions across the arts, sciences and digital technologies. The day will be split into 2 sessions, and each session will contain a number of drop-in activities themed around digital technologies, the virtual world, engineering and invention.

Activities include:

  • Tumblewing Glider: Build your own tumblewing glider and race them around the building.
  • Drawbot art installation: Create drawing robots with motors and Hexbugs to contribute to a large art collaborative installation.
  • CoSpaces: Design a fantasy future workspace in virtual worlds using virtual reality

Most suitable for children aged between 5-12. Children are not to be left at the workshop on their own.

What else is there to explore?

Musical Dots, founded by Anna and Meg, create educational and fun music that inspires children and supports adults. They bridge the gap between nursery rhymes and pop songs. The music and the characters, The Dots, educate and entertain.

Whether your child needs help sleeping or a nudge to eat fruit and vegetables, Musical Dots has a song that might help. Each song supports a different child development theme, features live recorded instruments and is written in a range of musical styles for all the family to enjoy.

Join Anna, Meg and The Dots, for their parent-child music and movement superhero sessions. Experience the positive impact quality music, with themes for children, has on everyone.

The day will finish with the bookshop Libreria hosting a children’s storytelling hour.
