Free arts and crafts for kids

Most kids like making things, but when they start getting crafty in the house, the only thing they usually end up making is a mess. You can save yourself the hassle of scrubbing paint off the carpet by taking the children to the Geffrye Museum. From now until the 16th of August, they are holding free craft workshops for children 5-16 years old. There is no booking required, but each session only has twenty-four places so it is recommended that you arrive early. The classes are time slotted, so if you miss an early morning session, you can explore the museum and come back for a later time.
