CAN Planet

Children's Drop-in School Holiday Activity

Date: Jan 6 – Jan 24Space: Workshop

What’s on YOUR planet?!

Something weird and wonderful? A spaceship landing in new territory surrounded by aliens, a dinosaur in an ancient forest, a train steaming up and over a rainbow, or an underwater castle?

Kids – bring a bucketload of imagination along to CAN and create! There are prizes for the best CAN Planet creation, and runners-up too! 

For just $5 koha (suggested donation) you can plunge into the piles of making materials and glue, and dream up your very own diarama. Grab one of the shoe boxes we have collected and create your miniature scene inside using fabric, glitter, recycled cardboard, beads, wire… in fact anything from the stocks of goodies we will have waiting for you.

You can record the story about your scene in the special CAN book, and leave your masterpiece on display for all to see. We would love the pile to grow and grow on the CAN Planet Table!

CAN Planet finishes on 24 January and all creations can be picked up in the last week. Judging of the CAN Planet creations will take place on Wednesday 22 January and winners will be announced on the CAN Facebook page.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. Hot glue guns will be available on request, issued to adults and over 14’s only.

CAN Planet is open 10am – 3.30pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am – 1.30pm on Sundays.
