Children can write, draw or create something that shows what this has been like for them. Not sure where to start? We’ve come up with a few ideas to help your children get started.

  • A day in the life of  ... (insert child's name) during New Zealand's 4 week lockdown
  • Write about 3 new things you learned during your 4-week stay at home and why these are important to you
  • What happened on your most BORING day during the 4-week lockdown?  What happened on your most FUN day during the lockdown?
  • Teleport yourself to the future... Describe the ways you think life in NZ will change after coronavirus?
  • If you could keep one thing that has happened because of Coronavirus the same, what would it be? and why?
  • Sometimes a story isn’t enough, the museum is also reviewing donation offers of objects, original photographs, digital content, arts and crafts relating to COVID-19. For donation enquiries please contact the Museum on their website or email enquiries@museumnp.org.nz
