The month kicked off with the exhibition opening “Learning Science While Playing.” The show, curated by Kathan Kothari, surrounded traditional toys of India, like clay whistles and catapults, and examined how they relate to scientific principles.
Because Ahmedabad is a 600 year-old city packed full of history, the city hosts a series of Heritage Walks throughout the year. The KHOJ led two Heritage Walks especially for children and their families, one focusing on street food, and the other on historic landmarks.
On December 15, the KHOJ hosted Chalo Charkho Ramiye: A Workshop on Handspinning by Avani Varia.
The KHOJ also had a Postcard Party, our current January CIVICKIDS project. Follow the How-To and share your own with #CMACIVICKIDS!

KHOJ means “Search or Discovery” in Hindi. KHOJ is India’s first dynamic children’s museum, aiming to create a scientific temper among children’s and adults alike by exploring the simple everyday phenomena happening around us. The museum goes under a complete metamorphosis every few months by focusing on different relevant themes to Children, Community, Country and the Globe. Learn more at khojmuseum.org.
