For those who love to use their hands, come and play with the patterns and shapes of natural materials to create ephemeral works of art and mini-mandalas.
Activities will be led by Kim Davies, local artist and outdoor learning facilitator.

Carrot Play with Oz HarvestOzHarvest-230

When: All day
Where: Activity Arena

At the Oz Harvest stall kids will be given the opportunity to get their hands dirty and dig up their very own carrots. The wonkier the carrot, the better. Carrots come in all shapes and sizes and are needlessly thrown out when they don’t fit supermarket specifications. Kids challenge their perceptions of produce; carrots may look a little bit different but they still taste as delicious. Tables and coloured pens will also be set up for kids to colour-in.
