Because in this crazy time, many people and places are struggling to survive, I think now is the time for some "sharing for caring" In this case, I am sharing with you how to help MachMit! Museum for kids to stay alive. This was our favorite place to go with the kids, and it was in my neighborhood. Because of all the actual restrictions, they are closed and struggling. So they found out a way for us to help.
I'll start talking about their Zwergtüten. You can find them outside of the museum and take them home to enjoy with your kids. They have fun projects like the necklace we made from the picture on top. You can leave some donations and just grab a project. Here I'll show you some we got to have fun with.
My niece came by, and we made "Fimo-Spoons". It works like play-doh, and you can bake them for them to harden. Now we have created 6 spoons to use for breakfast or delicious desserts. Super easy to make the kids love them!
You can help them buying some awesome shirts like one Pepa and my niece are wearing. They have 3 designs and they come in Kids sizes: 104 / 116 / 128 / 140 / 152, and adult sizes: S / M / L and they cost 20 euro.
Another way to help them would be to buy a voucher for your next visit or get an abo with them, you can find more info about this and the t-shirts on their website.
We loved making the necklaces from sticks, as much as the kids loved making stamps from Milk cartons. My niece, Sofia, is 10 and Pepa 4 and they had some days of fun with them.
We used the stamps to make postcards for all of their friends to send them some lovely sunny wishes. Pepa didn't know how to chose whom she should send all her cards.
Here you can see how the necklaces look like and the materials we used. Everything comes in the Zwergetüte... even the spoons and sticks.
Both girls were so distracted and entertained that I got to have some fun with Otis and my sister. And have a breather of the constant need to entertain the kids. And last but not least, we made some wooden creatures.. Look at our piggy!
So let's save MachMit! Get a t-shirt or a voucher or get yourself some awesome projects to make at home with the kids... but do something! I really hope to be back there with the kids once the Pandemic is over. Thank you all!
