We’ve created some great new ways to enjoy our collections together and we'll be adding more here over the coming weeks.

Have fun with LEGO®, get outside to explore the natural world or try out some new activities – from sketching some of our favourite objects to designing new patterns inspired by paper art from Mexico. We’ve even planning a family yoga workout – check back here for more!
