Organised in the form of a temporary artist studio, Family Days are a place where children, and their friends and families can develop and explore their interests in their own time. Drawing on the open-ended, experiential philosophies of Reggio Emilia Preschools, Family Days enable artists to develop material rich environments for play and experimentation.

Each year the Serpentine Galleries commissions an artist to develop a kit for families in response to the annual Architecture programme. Designed as a conversation between artists and children, the Family Kits build on children's curiosity and creativity and offer playful suggestions for experiencing the structure of the annual Pavilions. Available June – October.
