Children will make their own leis and necklaces using a selection of materials of their own choice, including paper flowers, beads, patty pans, straws and natural items. As well as flowers, children will be able to make little ‘garden critters’ to add to their creation.

Kids in the Kitchen

Kids will enjoy the hands-on Thai Chicken Noodle Salad workshops with Chef Carmel Carmichael, who will take them on a wonderful cooking journey. Start by designing their own noodle box and then create an individual salad using a Veggie Twister. At the end of the session they will have the opportunity to make their own dressing and finish by picking a herb garnish.
