Toddler Fest is back and this year we're blasting into space! The littlest kids can come and join in the fun for five days and a new theme of space will be the focus for the activities. From galaxies to stars, spacemen to aliens, children aged 0-5 years will be able to discover outer space with fun-filled workshops and hands-on entertainment.
A range of exciting partners will be hosting activities throughout the week, making 2019 the biggest event yet. The fabulous Mess Around Edinburgh and their multi-sensory messy play sessions will be available as well as The Young Engineers, who provide educational fun within science and engineering. Kids will also be able to learn about rockets and outer space with Fun Scientists, get creative with the RSPB, learn about communicating with The University of Edinburgh and climb inside a giant cell with UV torches with Cancer Research UK.
Firm favourites from previous years will be returning, including the Cloud Factory and crawl through kaleidoscopes as well as a chance to test your reaction time and grab a cuddle with Cameron, the friendly Camera Obscura bear, who’s had a special spaceman make-over!
