Kidzone ideas and concepts forum...........
As with all the areas of resonance Karamea, the kidzone has improved every year and it is only fair to assume that we will keep on striving to make it even better this year.
We have had a pretty solid kidzone crew for the past while and have developed an understanding of the designated space and some fundamentals that seem to work.
Flags/ flying fox/ playground structure/ shaded area are well rooted in the physical realm of the zone
Face Painting/ Rock painting/Stories/ Wall painting and Giant bubbles are activities that are always put on for the kids to enjoy.
Running a forum gives the chance to express ideas, conceptualize, track down resources, assign tasks and keep it on a medium that is easily and readily accessible. It also allows for other community members, not neccesarily directly involved with the kidzone or even the festival itself, to contribute/discover that they may have some talent or resource to offer.
It would be great to offer more in the way of timetabled events. Two talented story tellers were a highlight last year.
Perhaps we could add musicians, puppeters to the mix and was thinking maybe a kids music session, jamming on instruments or DJing.
Kids specific workshops would also be great......raft building......science experiments.....
Got some toys, some time, an idea,........
