Victorian Childhood

Victorian Childhood

Learn how Victorian children spent their leisure time. Compare the toys and games that rich and poor children had. Take part some Victorian games and make a peg doll.

The workshop will focus on:

  • How religion affected leisure time.
  • The differences between the toys and games of rich and poor children.
  • Materials and technology used in the making of toys.
  • How poor children acquired their toys.

Victorian Children is a half day session, but can be booked as a whole day with Victorian Schoolroom or Victorian Home life.
