  • Demonstration of the creation of a traditional 'petasi' kite. The participants will have the opportunity to acquire the special kite-making kit, which includes all the materials and instructions to make one kite. Experienced Museum officers will be with you to provide all the essential instructions to create your kite at home!
  • 'Lady Lent (“Kyra Sarakosti”): A unique calendar!' As the period of Lent is approaching our young friends, with the guidance of the Museum officers, will craft their own figure of Lady Lent with dough.
  • The educational station for learning how to make a kite will be held in three time slots: 10.30-11.30, 11.30-12.30 and 13.30-14.30, while the 'Lady Lent (“Kyra Sarakosti”): A unique calendar!' educational station will operate for our young friends from 10.30 to 14.30.

    Music will not be absent from this exciting event: we will have the Sfera 96.8 radio station with us with a live link from 10.00 to 12.00, while the baton will be passed to the exceptional children's choir of the Astrinidio Odio Cyprus from 12.30 to 13.00.
