Mini Boat & Raft Making at Lysterfield lake

    10:00 am - 11:30 am

It’s time to get kids off the screens and into our Bush Kids school holiday program these summer holidays! They’ll learn life skills and how to use real tools while making friends and building confidence.

Join us for this hands-on workshop with our facilitator Katie, as we embark on a bush adventure like no other! The kids will learn bush skills such as how to tie various rope knots and then design their own mini boat or raft. This workshop involves plenty of construction and creativity and they will be sourcing and using all natural materials. Then we’ll head off for a bush walk to the lake and learn all about the wildlife that lives at Lysterfield Lake Park and of course, try out our boats! Will they sail or will they sink? Let’s see!

This bush kids school holiday workshop is being held at Lysterfield Park. This is a great opportunity for children to be outdoors, in nature, learning real skills with real tools and making useful things.

Our workshop facilitator, Katie is a bush playgroup facilitator, forest school leader and environmental scientist who has been delivering environmental programs for over 20 years.

The children will work both independently and as a team and take these skills home with them that can use anytime in the bush.

Ages: 4 – 12 years

  • Parents are required to stay & are responsible for their children at all times.
