IF you’re looking for something to do with the kids over the Easter long weekend, Hawkesbury Museum is offering free drop-in activities on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Kids are invited to take a selfie with a flabbit, and make their own flabbit out of cardboard using easy-to-follow instructions.

On Sunday from 2pm there will be a fun family event rolling painted eggs down the sloping lawn, with chocolate prizes for children under 12 (this event is free, but the museum says a gold coin donation is appreciated).

If you’re heading to the museum, pop over to see the Flood! exhibition – reportedly the museum’s most successful exhibition ever, with a record number of visitors.

More than 1,000 people visited the exhibition on the weekend of 23-25 June 2017, which was the 200th anniversary of the Great Flood of 1867. 

The exhibition will be ending in a couple of weeks, but parts of it will remain on permanent display, while space is made for a new major exhibition, Food Bowl Farming, opening May 18.
