Qatar Children’s Museum launches family workshops

Running out of ideas for things to do with your kids?

The Qatar Children’s Museum (QCM), now being developed by Qatar Museums (QM), announced it will be hosting daily workshops on its Instagram account that families can participate in using everyday materials found in their home.

The sessions invite families in Qatar to incorporate playing and learning (in their daily routine and engage with the museum’s staff who will be present to facilitate the sessions live.

The content is suitable for both Arabic and English-speaking audiences and is being launched before QCM begins construction, to aid families that are stuck at home during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

QCM has already inaugurated a Learning and Outreach Department, which has engaged the community through workshops for children and their families at popular events such as the Doha International Book Fair.

For those interested, QCM will be sharing an activity video at 3pm, Sundays to Thursdays, designed to encourage all family members to get involved.

The live workshops will last for an hour and QCM’s staff will be on hand to answer questions, make suggestions and curate an exchange of ideas between families.

The team will also invite families to share their creative explorations, which could be featured on the museum’s Instagram page.

The fun and educational workshops will include art, crafts, literacy, science and cooking among other topics and the activities planned include painting with bubbles, making plastic from milk, crafting tissue paper flowers and upcycling plastic containers to jewellery.

QCM will share instructions and lists of materials required will on their Instagram account (@ChildrensMuseum.QA) prior to each activity, so families and children can prepare in advance.
