Tales of trickster characters can be found on every continent. Many of the objects in the Ethnological Museum reflect the theme of these creatures – for example, Anansi, the cunning spider from West Africa, or the wily hornbill of Papua New Guinea.  


They are usually tricky, ambivalent and heroic characters! Using these stories as inspiration, as well as a plentiful supply of bright ideas and resources, families can work together to bring their own trickster to life.
