Fun Day Out Activities

Macrame Magic

Get ready for some knotted, creative fun with a master of macrame! 

Explore the magic of rope and make your very own knotted masterpiece, a fancy key ring or necklace to keep or gift to a friend.

Participants can choose to make a fluffy feather, a macrame Mermaid/Neptune, or a colourful stringy friend!

Along the way you may learn to tie your shoelaces, fashion a lucky knot, invent your own knot, or tell a not-knot joke.

Almost every child got involved in this experience, and they also got to take a key ring that they created away from this experience. This was one of the best incursions we have had to date! We had children who I didn’t think would be interested love it! I have never seen so many engaged children in a hands-on crafty incursion! The children had nothing but great things to say about this incursion and when they finished creating their key ring all the children wanted them on their bags.
