Looking for a hands-on activity to get your family making at home? Throughout August, we’ll be sharing a new activity for you and your family to experiment and tinker with at home!

In August 2020 we’ll be sharing ideas for home creations, inspired by some of our favourite imagination filled activities.

What can I make?

We’ll be sharing videos about optical illusions, playing with food colouring and much more!

How can I get involved?

Follow us on social media to discover a summer of imagination:

Twitter: @ImaginationLdn
Facebook: @Institute of Imagination
Instagram: @InstituteofImagination

We’ll also be updating this page to include videos for each week!

Just like our events, the best way to try these activities out is to iterate and experiment and to share ideas. We hope you enjoy tinkering and experimenting! We can’t wait to see what you come up with together.

Remember to share what you make with us using #iOiSummer!
