The Sydney Royal Easter Show is a much-loved annual event that, like so many others, has been cancelled because of the risks from coronavirus. But the good news is we can bring it into our homes, with home delivered showbags.
Every parent across the country is doing whatever they can to keep their children entertained and educated – and now they have the opportunity to bring the fun of the Sydney Royal Easter Show directly into their lounge rooms with showbags galore. Here are some sites and samples:
Sydney Royal Easter Show at Home: Showbags
Our pick? Entertain the kids with a Jeans for Genes Future Scientist Show Bag, $25, delivered straight to your door.
CMRI, the charity behind Jeans for Genes, is selling Future Scientist show bags that are packed with loads of educational and entertaining resources from pipettes to beakers, craft items to colouring-in, clay, pencils and even a bouncy ball! They also have Future Scientist lab coats available to foster a love of science in your little ones. They can have fun at the same time they’re learning about the importance of research. The best part is that, because every cent goes into the labs at Children’s Medical Research Institute, you are ensuring that vital research will continue during this difficult time, a cause we have supported in the past.
The ‘Future Scientist Kit’ includes all of the tools you’ll need to test their skill and precision in your at-home lab.
