Bugs About - 12pm
Find out how even the smallest of creatures can be a big deal! At this event for every kid who loves creepy crawlies, you’ll learn about the anatomy of bugs, their lifecycles, adaptations, and how to be safe around bugs. Plus, we’ll discuss the importance of bugs in the environment and how our choices affect them and in-turn how that affects us.

Abi Tucker and The Mermaid’s Recycled Tail! - 2pm

The Enchanted Forest
Wander through the Enchanted Forest for the following hands-on activities that will be going all day long!
Puppet Making & Puppet Theatre
Join us at the Enchanted Forest where you can find your Nature Name and play a game of charades to see if your friends can guess it! Then, gather inspiration from your nature name to make a puppet from sustainable materials that you can bring home. Older kids can take part in building a puppet theatre out of cardboard including the stage, seating, decorations and more! Everyone is welcome to create a puppet and put on a show.
Need a bit of time out? Pop along to the library truck! You can have a look at the books, cop a squat on some pillows and enjoy a bit of a chill-out under the trees.
