10th&18th July: PUPPET MANIA + PUPPET THEATRES
ADD YOUR CREATIVE KIDS VOUCHER DURING THE BOOKING PROCESS FOR A $100 REFUND!
Drop your kids off at our super-creative kids art workshops these July school holidays! Our workshops are a wonderful antidote to too much screen-time and nurture your child’s creativity. Perfect for arty siblings ages 4-12. Breaks are outdoors at the playground on Gilderthorpe avenue, with a picnic & play in Varna Park at lunchtime weather permitting
Choose from 3hr workshops or full day care.
MORNING: PUPPET MANIA
In this hands on workshop kids will get the opportunity to make a couple of puppets of their choice: stick puppets, recycled junk puppets, hand puppets, marionettes etc. They will be encouraged to design their own puppets & guided to create them.
AFTERNOON: PUPPET THEATRES
Kids have made their own puppets - now they make a fancy-schmansy traditional-style theatre complete with real curtains, gold stars & trimmings. Kids will also have the opportunity to put on their own puppet show!
