Did you know that the Victoria & Albert Museum had a Museum of Childhood? No, me neither. But they do, and they have a wide-range of exhibits and workshops running over the summer. One of these is running in conjunction with VTech, one of the best brands of children’s electronic learning toys. They are offering a series of workshops which aim to introduce children to the exciting possibilities of the digital word in a fun and engaging way.
This is the type of thing that I would love to take The Boy to as he is really beginning to explore the photographic capabilities of the iPod Touch, but unfortunately at two years old he is too young for the workshops. The hour-long sessions are ideal for children aged 4-9 years old and are running every Saturday over the school summer holidays at 2pm from the 23rd July to the 27th August. What's even better about these Digi-Fun workshops, providing children with the opportunity to explore, invent and create with the very latest kid-friendly technology, is that are that they are free!
So if your little Annie Liebovitzs and David Baileys are eager to learn how to take pictures, film and edit their own footage then pop over to the V&A museum to book a session. You'll need to hurry though because the next two Saturdays are fully booked, but they are still taking bookings for 13th, 20th and 27th August!
