Each day of the week Abbey House Museum will be sharing content for families via their Facebook Page.
Mondays are all about music, taking inspiration from our exhibition Sounds of Our City that unfortunately people can’t see at the moment we thought we would bring bits of the exhibition to Facebook! We will be posting about our star objects from the exhibition including our glass piano, special characters such as Padtoeski, the performers who played 3 instruments at once including the piano with his feet! And songs from our jukebox.
Tuesdays are for toys, we will be posting videos about old and new toys (the first one went up yesterday). Putting up pictures, asking for drawings and poems inspired by the toys.
Wednesdays are all about questions, we will be asking families to send us history homework questions and we will be posting mystery objects.
Thursdays are throwback Thursdays posting old pictures from how the museum used to look.
This is the new private community page that is an extension of

Please ignore the address listed, please just pick a morning which is most suited for your little one, and I will come to you via our online platform Zoom!
I know how incredibly tough lockdown can be for parents with little ones, so the classes will bring a little fun, creativity and play for them each week
Sessions are 4 for £20 and can be booked as normal via the website, www.toddlersense.com/northleeds (Please ignore the address listed!)
Codswallop group sessions are now ONLINE!
Over the coming weeks/months we will be utilising google classroom to post activities, videos and useful links to our regular session attendees so that they can still get their weekly session fix! Starting Monday 30th March 2020 with Oddballs Juniors at 4pm!
You can log in to the classroom and complete activities whenever you feel like it, though we will release a new activity at your usual session time every week… cool or what?!?!
We’d also love you to get involved if you’ve never been to a Codswallop group before – it’s a great way to see what we’re all about and stay connected so please do share with your friends!

FREE Family Fun streaming daily on the Froggle Facebook Page
The front door is locked, but our online doors are open and over the next few months Harewood House Trust is sharing an engaging programme of daily changing online content.
Bringing a bit of love to you..
Harewood is a charity, and as such everything we do here is for the benefit and enrichment of the public. We want to share the collections, the stories, the landscape of this museum-accredited House; plus its 50-year-old Bird Garden, licensed zoo, and 120 acres of Grade I listed gardens and grounds, even when we are closed.
We feel it’s our mission to enrich, enlighten, engage and entertain you.
From hands-on tips from the Learn team and Head Gardener, to behind the scenes with the curators and collections team, or just a moment of wellbeing, the content will be shared on the Harewood blog, on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @harewoodhouse and on the YouTube channel.
Until the moment we can welcome visitors back to Harewood, enjoy a little bit of ‘Harewood at Home’. See the daily timetable of activities below.
Although Leeds Young Film Festival 2020 has been postponed due to Coronavirus, we want to make sure that you still have the opportunity to watch and discover new films, along with some family favourites.
We know that you are not short of content but, with so much to choose from, it can sometimes be hard to find what you want without endless scrolling or resorting to watching Frozen for the 37th time!
To help you navigate the world of online streaming we will be suggesting ten films you can watch as a family each Friday, along with where to find them. Most of the films require either a Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+ account but we know most households have at least one of these (and all are offering a free trial before you have to subscribe). We will also ensure that we include some free-to-watch films as well.
We know it can be a scary time at the moment but we think it is important to forget about your worries occasionally, so why not snuggle up on the sofa together and immerse yourself in a magical world for a couple of hours?
If you do decide to watch any of the films and want to write or film a short review, or draw a picture relating to the film, please send it to us at email@example.com. We’ll select the best ones each week and post them on the website and will give a free family ticket to Leeds Young Film Festival (when it eventually happens) to anyone whose work is published.
Please check out this week’s list here:
Phonics with Robot Reg are educational, high energy classes which teach early phonics skills to children aged 1-4 years. It’s a fantastic way to introduce children, and their adults, to the wonderful world of early literacy through the use of games, dance, music and bubbles!
