We have a jam-packed program of Nature-based Arts and fun activities in their own Kid’s Kingdom for the kids. The day starts with a chance to make some music with Beats Bus Productions Upcycled Drumming. Then there is a slower pace as the kids get their hands dirty while they Garden with Krystelle, where they will plant their own seed to take home. Circus Connections will then be leading the kids in some fun circus skills and play.
Throughout the day, Rachel from Nature Arts will be hosting a quiet space for the kids to paint with mud, play with clay and work with bits from nature to express their inner world. Then in the afternoon, the kids can make and decorate their own lantern for the Lantern Parade. Beeswax tea light candles will be available for sale for $1, generously supplied by Happy Flame Candles. Be sure to check out their stall at the Festival.
Another addition this year is our free creche service in the kid’s area for children aged 3-11. Your kids will be cared for and engaged in activities while you attend the adult workshops. Sign them in for up to 2 hours. (Conditions apply for the safety and comfort of your child.) Disclaimer: We will absolutely be held accountable for the flowers painted on their faces, dirt under their nails and the smiles on their faces when you return. 😊
