Our mission is to provide free, hands-on art activities for people of all abilities in a spirit of
cooperation and joy. We thank you for your donations that help fund Kidsfest, and we ask that
each person give as they are able. A Donation Station is located at the entrance to Kidsfest. All
proceeds go directly towards supplies, equipment and performances. All staff and volunteers
give their time and expertise for free, so please give them your thanks.
Choose bits of colored beeswax and warm them in your hands. Feel the wax soften, and then press it onto a candle. Decorate it in a way that makes you smile! Relax on a hay bale, play in the sand, wear some wings, or just watch. Simple, fun, imaginative, tactile choices brought to you and staffed for you by Aurora Waldorf School.
Hand drill and screw your very own wooden kazoo! Then buzz your way amongst the flowers and march in our parade! A big thank you to Nardin Montessori Academy for staffing this humming tent.
Face painting artists are right here. Will you be a queen bee or a lion king? A flower or a fairy? Or anything your heart desires. Let your imagination fly!
Plus, a kazoo is absolutely more fun when it’s on a cord. This is where you can drill the hole, twist the cord, thread it through, make a loop and wear it around your proud neck.
Make a bouncy pom pom antennae, or a colorful flower crown. Bees and flowers are good friends who help each other. Flowers share their pollen and nectar, and bees pollinate the flowers. How enjoyable to have such friends! Thank you to our friends at Park School for helping out in the Woodland Tent.
THE BUSY BEE POLLINATING PARADE TENT-
Make a giant tissue paper flower and imagine inviting your pollinating friends over to share a cup of your sweet nectar. Bees have a built in straw called a proboscis, so no need to buy any straws!
The honeycomb pattern is made of six-sided shapes called hexagons. Engineers know that the geometry of the hexagon uses the least amount of materials to hold the most weight. The bees are intelligent engineers! We’ll use their honeycomb pattern to stencil onto our 90-foot long banner to carry in the BUSY BEE POLLINATING PARADE.
