Bored? Take the kids to Imaginosity at Kildare Village this Easter break

With the children off school for two weeks, you might find they’re getting a bit bored. There’s only so long they can spend at home without getting restless. If you feel you need a break from all things Paw Patrol and Fortnite, consider a family day out to Imaginosity’s pop-up at Kildare Village.

What is Imaginosity?

Imaginosity, Ireland’s ONLY Children’s Museum is a fun, interactive, hands-on museum dedicated to your child’s success through learning and play. Its engaging workshops are designed specifically for kids under the age of nine, with the aim to stimulate their creativity and imagination.

Imaginosity’s ‘Fun & Fitness Lab’ at Kildare Village features the brand new and exclusive mobile experience Ima-GYM-osity’; featuring a dedicated ‘kids only’ gym, and a life-sized Giant Operation Game where you have to beat the clock and remove all of the patient’s body parts before the time is up! 

Not only that, kids can engage in hands-on workshops and learn mindfulness skills which help to improve their concentration.

Children learn best when they’re having fun and this educational, Easter-break experience is sure to make them smile.

Pop-up at Kildare Village

We all know Easter is a great time to focus on family. For that reason, Kildare Village has teamed up with Imaginosity to make your luxury shopping trip more family-friendly.

“We’re making family time even more fun with the return of Imaginosity from April 15 – 28 inclusive,” they say. While the little ones are being entertained, you can browse and shop in 100 boutiques from leading brands (with up to 60% off the RRP).

There are three, two-hour workshops daily; one from 11 am – 1 pm; another from 1 pm – 3 pm; and lastly, 3 pm – 5 pm. At just €10 per child, we think it’s well worth a visit.

Spaces, which are limited to 30 children per session, are available on a first come first served basis (so get booking if you don’t want your child to miss out).

It’s important to note these workshops are strictly for children aged four-to-nine years old, and all boys and girls in attendance must be toilet trained.

If Imaginosity isn’t for you, there will be plenty of other events at Kildare Village to keep your little ones busy this Easter break. From baking classes with Le Pain Quotidien to Starbucks Kids Club (plus tasting events and so much more), you’re sure to find something to suit.
