On the last Friday of each month the National Capital Exhibition hosts a free program for preschoolers called 'Little Griffins’. It is focused on the design and building of Canberra, in a very gentle way, guiding participants to be like Walter and Marion Griffin, the designers of our capital. The program always includes building with DuploTM, songs and lots of fun. 
Little Griffins available online during COVID-19.
