Ipswich Art Gallery has their new children's display happening right now so we went along to check it out yesterday. This is always quite a car ride for us but I consider it very worthwhile because of everything the girls (and I) learn and enjoy while we are there and we do love a good adventure.
Construction Site is the name of the latest display. It's hands-on fun for both kids and parents. Foam block are strewn everywhere allowing you to build whatever you like together....before it gets knocked down! We managed to build a small cubby house before Miss M saw the other activities available.
There are remote controlled diggers for moving dirt and a big magnetic wall for building drains. Miss H and I had a great time constructing a drain for the ping pong balls to go down. She absolutely loved posting them to see what would happen.
Another great display! You will find the Art Gallery at ...
d'Arcy Doyle Place
Nicholas St, Ipswich
Parking around town has meters in place so take your coins OR
we park in the Ipswich City Square Car Park which is found by taking a right turn into East St, turning left before the bridge down onto Bremmer St and going left on the round-a-bout. You'll see a ramp ahead but turn left before it and go down into the car park.
Walk up the mall and the Gallery is across the road and directly on the left.
If you live in Brisbane, Ipswich or a suburb nearby, be sure to check out what's on at the Gallery. http://www.ipswichartgallery.qld.gov.au/ You can also get on the mailing list so you don't miss a thing.
Now back to my own construction site - the reno!
