Even in winter, holidays are best spent outdoors - so why not equip yourself for a holiday full of discovery and science? In this workshop we will be helping you build a bug bucket or net out of salvaged materials, as well as the ultimate aviary for your mini beasts and insects. Our workshops use clean industrial discards to create amazing works of art! Children will learn something new, think outside the box and take home a special creation they will love to play with through the holidays!

What kind of dreamy kid are you? What if we could experience our dreams from the inside out? What if we paid more attention to what is happening on the inside of our bodies? Would we move differently? See things in a new way? Dream out loud? In our journey well start with kids/animal yoga, an inner and outer body exploration of connection; we’ll try to notice the little things as we move slowly. We will then practice the art of cloud gazing and create some fun shapes and stories from what we see up in the sky.

What to bring?

  • Hat
  • Water bottle
  • Piece of fruit, or other healthy, nutritious snack
  • Clothes and shoes to get wild in!
  • Raincoat
  • A sense of adventure and a big smile!
