It’s time to get kids off the screens and into our Bush Kids workshop these school holidays. They’ll learn life skills and how to use real tools while making friends and building confidence in the outdoors.
This hands-on workshop will teach children the basics of how to use some real tools to create all sorts of woodworking projects they can take home. Children will have access to a variety of natural timbers that vary in shape, textures and lengths for them to use.
By giving children small achievable tasks to complete, they learn to become more independent while developing self-esteem and confidence. By attending our forest school programs, children learn to assess risk and make sensible and informed decisions about how to deal with unfamiliar and unpredictable situations. The children will work both independently and as a team and take these skills home with them so they can use anytime in the bush.
Located at Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve, this workshop is run by Kate. Kate is a qualified and experienced Primary School Teacher, Art Teacher and Outdoor Educator. Kate is passionate about creativity and loves nurturing creativity and imagination in both children and adults. She believes that nature is the best classroom that there is because it provides countless opportunities for developing these qualities.
