Tinkr Fest is a celebration of learning through open-ended play, exploration and experimentation. This is an ideal day out for families with 3-12 year olds, with activities designed to connect parents and children and get you creating together.
Parents can experience how to be a facilitator of learning for their child. To guide them to ask questions and help them find their own solutions. To let them fail and encourage them to bounce back, again and again. To spark their curiosity and nurture their creativity.
The sizzling theme of this Tinkr Fest is Electric Fun! Join us daily for our electrifying workshops 10:30am-12pm and walk-in activities 10am-5:30pm
