9:30 am - 11:00 am
Ignite your child’s creativity and love of nature with our Mini-beasts workshop! The children will learn all about the AMAZING world of mini-beasts through fun, creative and hands on activities. Located at the popular Ceres Environment Park in Melbourne’s Brunswick East, families can also enjoy a visit to the CERES organic market, cafe and the nursery while there.
The children will create their own minibeasts to take home using clay and natural/recycled materials. They will learn about life-cycles and even get to go on a BUG hunt to the pond with nets and buckets in search of water bugs and water critters to identify and scoop up. We’ll enjoy a game of ‘bug detectives’ on the way and see what we can find!
This workshop is run by Pascale and Adam.
