Avoid school holiday boredom. Join us for a fun day. We’ll be getting crafty to help out backyard bees and bugs. You’ll create your very own bee boutique planter to take home. Make a set of beeswax lunch wraps to use next term for waste-free lunches at school. Then we’ll make some cool bug hotels to provide a haven for bugs outside your home. Gloves provided but there will be paint and you may get a bit dirty so no best clothes! Our focus is on boosting your child's knowledge of the importance of pollinators and bugs in our ecosystems and zero waste at school through a lot of fun activities.

Ages 8 – 11
Please bring a drink, morning tea, and lunch.

Plant pots, potting mix, plants, sticks, fabric (lots of options) and organic beeswax will be provided. But please feel free to bring along any special containers or fabric that your child would like to use. A light to medium weight cotton fabric works well.

Rossgrove Chapel is a 2-minute​ walk from the Baldwin Avenue train station.

These classes are hosted by Carolyn Cox a mother of two boys. Carolyn is a member of the New Zealand Association of Environmental Education and has over 20 years experience in sustainability and environmental education. Carolyn is also a dab hand in the garden and enjoys some crafty fun!
