Family Activities

We are busy getting ready for the summer here at MoDiP and during August we are offering some fantastic family activities, themed around our current exhibition Revolution.  
Activities will allow families to learn about sustainability in plastics, recycling and upcycling.

MoDiP will welcome Eco-plastic Detectives who will engage in an
‘I spy Eco-plastic’ activity, requiring children to put on their detective hats. They will explore and find certain objects within the display cases of the exhibition ‘Revolution’. This activity is a drop-in session taking place throughout August with a self-led worksheet. If you are interested in coming along, please check out our opening times on our website before making your journey. 

There will also be an activity to investigate plastic packaging seeing families members become an Eco-plastic Investigator. Using a magnifying glass children will explore objects to find the recycling triangle. They will write down the number and letters they see in or near the recycling triangle. Then with the help of an Identification Code List they can find out what the number and letters mean. This session requires booking a ticket via Eventbrite. There are various sessions throughout August.

We also have an activity that will allow families to become Eco-plastic Makers. Why not come along and put into practice your skills of upcycling by making a woven bag from used plastic bags. There are a limited number of places for this activity so please ensure you book a ticket, via Eventbrite  

Please note that all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
If you require more information about any of the family activities above please call 01202 363727 or e-mail

We look forward to seeing detectives, investigators and makers coming to visit us soon!
