Kids activities hopping into QVM in time for Easter
As April approaches and summer-centric events wrap up for the year, Queen Victoria Market (QVM) is turning its attention to families and children over the Easter school holidays.
With a “Kids Passport” activity already underway, QVM is enticing and educating kids to learn about the various cuisines and produce found at the market, with an “around-the-world” journey.
“Queen Victoria Market has always played a vital role in educating future generations about Melbourne’s fresh produce culture and where our food comes from,” QVM’s general manager marketing and customer experience Meg Dalla Lana said.
Announced during mid-March, the Kids Passport activity invites kids to pick up a QVM passport from the Visitor Hub on String Bean Alley from 10am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and then venture around the market collecting stamps before ending their journey at the hub once again to claim a prize.
Alongside the Kids Passport, QVM is set to become an Easter extravaganza once the holidays hit.
From Easter Bunny visits on Easter Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 2pm, to a wide range of free activities in the RK/RL shed between the hours of 10am and 1pm, there is something for all families to get involved in.
Kids are encouraged to explore their artistic side through designing fun and colourful Easter eggs on April 12, create a set of Easter bunny ears on April 14 and design their very own fluffy pom pom pet with googly eyes on April 21.
