Event description

Description

Ever wish you could magically swap your boring old toys for exciting new ones? You can!

  • you'll bring 3 of your best quality old toys that you're sick of playing with
  • we'll learn what would happen to them if we throw them in the bin
  • we'll run our own Toy Swap Party
  • you'll get to take home some new toys

Join Annette Loudon at our Eco Heroes Club to turn de-cluttering into a fun activity that kids can do with their friends.

We'll learn about the different materials that are used to make toys, and what happens when toys are put in the garbage and sent to landfill. Then kids will run their own Toy Swap Party.

Kids are invited to bring up to 3 of their best toys that they're no longer playing with, and swap them for new toys. Please ensure toys are clean and in good condition. No electrical items.

WHEN: Saturday 17 May 2018 TIME: 2:30pm-4:00pm
WHERE: The Classroom adjacent to the Randwick Community Centre, 27 Munda Street Randwick

AGES: This session is for 5-11 year olds.

See you then.


Eco Heroes

About Eco Heroes Club...

Hey! It's awsome... At Eco Heroes, our 5 to 11 year olds (sometimes it will be for 7-12 year olds) participate in hands-on eco-activities that are fun... whether that's making a video, planting vegetables in the garden, learning about the wildlife critters we share Randwick with, learning about worms and compost or making art from recycled materials. We meet mostly on the third Saturday of the month between 2:30 and 4:00pm (excluding school holidays). These sessions are led by educators employed by Randwick City Council.

The Eco Heroes program offers social and recreational activities for children aged between 5-11; here, they learn to cooperate with others. it's also an opportunity for parents and carers to introduce children to a creative social environment where they do things in company with their peers.

Where do we meet?

Most of the Eco Heroes monthly sessions will take place at the Randwick Sustainabilty Hub, Randwick Community Centre, 27 Munda Street, Randwick.

Bookings essential

We take a maximum of 15 children aged between 5-11 years old who are accompanied by their parent/s or guardian/s. Special session might change this age range to include 7-12 years old.

On the day...

Here's some helpful details to know about registering on the day:

  • a parent or carer must accompany each child
  • children should wear clothing appropriate to the season and weather which might include a hat, sunscreen and closed-in shoes rather than sandals for garden activities
  • because some activities are in the garden or involve craft or cooking activities, it is best that children wear clothing that can get a little grubby
  • there is no cost to participate in EcoHeroes, although there may be a cost for any special activities.

Eco Heroes possibilities for our monthly meetUPs...

  • learn about our wildlife critters
  • make eco-art
  • making artwork for the Permaculture Interpretive Garden
  • cooking from the garden playing eco-games
  • make videos
  • learn about worms
  • plant a vegie garden
  • make friends...
