The bellows on the object shelves were very popular. Harry used them for blowing dust away and pretending to blow the fire.
We also talked about the clogs to be worn over normal shoes to keep them clean in the dirty streets and the money box the servants would have held to encourage tips from guests.
We opened two trunks and looked at the type of food a poor family and a rich family would have eaten, together with the type of toys they would have played with and fabrics their clothes might have been made from.
There were also some traditional toys to play with - spinning tops, quoits and cup & ball.
This will be a really good historical place to visit in coming years too as there is lots to engage older children, such as maps of the quayside, architectural examples and many more Tudor objects to explore.
