Yesterday the girls and I headed off to Winchester Science Centre, I’ve been to the centre once before for a blogging conference and although we just quickly walked through to the conference room I thought it looked so much fun and one day I would have to take the girls.
As it’s the Easter holidays we made plans to go with my friend and her two children, the kids have all known each other since day 1 but don’t get too see much of each other since they have all started school and things, so it was nice to get together.
Winchester Science Centre was set up with the purpose of promoting the knowledge and understanding of science, it is a completely interactive centre so perfect for little hands that need to touch absolutely everything.
There is so many things activities for the kids to try even for Lottie aged 2 she was happy getting stuck in, pressing buttons etc. Despite it being a rain day in the Easter holiday’s there was never more than a few minute wait to have a go on an activity.
I love this photo of Bella, she looks so amazed by the floating parachutes.
When you hear the word science I automatically think back to the years of sitting in a stuffy class looking at text books and not loving life at all. Winchester science centre makes it so much fun, my girls were a little young to get all the educational side of it but they were really enjoying learning through play.
There’s a small soft play area down stair which was a perfect area for my girls to let off some steam.
Food wise there is a cafe in the centre with serving a selection of hot and cold foods. I did think it was a little expensive compared to other places we have visited in the past, but the cake was to die for so I can make allowances. There is a lot of seating available up stair and downstairs if you do choose to take your own food though as well.
All in all we had a really fun day, I will defiantly take the girls back for another visit in the future, we didn’t get a chance to see the planetarium so that will be a on the top of my list for next time.
