strawberry arts and crafts

I found a lot of enjoyment in working with children after spending five years working in a Child Care Centre in Jabiru, Kakadu National Park. After moving to Agnes Water and having our son, JimRyan, I decided to start up an Arts and Crafts group for children in the community. I really enjoy being creative with children and letting them explore the purpose of all kind of materials. It is a lot fun to use different props and for children to discover the effect  of those. Having a dedicated area to do Arts and Crafts makes it a whole lot easier to offer the classes on a regular basis. So now that the campground is open, I will be offering regular Art Classes for the Traveller's who stay with us. I also have a valid Blue Card. 

* Dates will be displayed on the Campground Ablution Block and our Facebook Page (@travellersrest1770)

* $ 5.00 / per child (incl. light Morning Tea)

* All ages welcome

* 9 am for approx. 1 hour 

* Please dress your child and yourself in clothes that can get dirty as we will not take an responsibility of

  clothes that get stained

* I got a valid Blue Card

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

Our Art Classes are not just about using creativity or enhancing your children's Fine Motor Skills...we also encourage the use of recycled and sustainable materials. In the picture above you can see that we used egg cartons and made beautiful Spring Flowers.

CULTURAL EVENTS

"Strawberry Arts & Crafts" enjoys the celebration of cultural events. For NAIDOC Week 2019 we did a beautiful Art collage with natural materials collected from the bush. We used the colours of the indigenous flag as background and the children learned about common symbols that are being used by indigenous people, by drawing them onto their collages

MORNING TEA
HAND-EYE-COORDINATION

The children showed a lot of interest and patience when creating beautiful necklaces. It was a bit tricky to thread the small beads onto the thin piece of wire, but it was great to see how the older children helped the younger children to complete their unique piece of jewellery. 

SEASONAL ACTIVITIES
