It will be a fun and modern twist on agoge, the rigorous training education program for Spartan citizens. During the workshop, kids will build and decorate their own Spartan shield and spear replica then engage in shield formations, drills and a re-enactment of the Battle Of Thermopylae and the Olympics. All kids will leave the workshop with their own DIY Spartan shield and spear, new skills, friends and plenty of fun memories. This is great if you're after unique kids activities in Sydney that will engage and delight your kids. Entry Cost All tickets $100
