SPC KidsTown will be the place to be for kids and families this Wednesday with Greater Shepparton City Council’s Activities in the Park PLANKS program.

PLANKS is a wooden block construction workshop which builds a creative mind, allowing participants to stack the blocks into various structures. Each plank is identical in size and shape, allowing structures to be held together by gravity and balance alone.

Greater Shepparton City Council Director Community Kaye Thomson encouraged families to bring their kids along for this fun and free activity facilitated by Green Hat Workshops.

“This activity allows families to gather and be connected, and also allows participants to tap into their creativity skills whilst having fun in the outdoors,” said Ms Thomson.

Green Hat Workshops believes in a life of playful experimentation and constant engagement with the elements of our world, dedicated to providing workshops and products that foster lifelong learning and creatively inspire all ages.

Planks is part of the Activities in the Park program, proudly presented by Greater Shepparton City Council and Get Mooving Greater Shepparton. The Planks activity will be held on Wednesday 29 November 2017, 4.00pm – 6.00pm at SPC KidsTown.

Residents and visitors can view the Activities in the Park November - December edition for a full list of activities on offer, providing free and low cost activities throughout Greater Shepparton encouraging people to be outdoors and get active.

Two additional program editions will be released in January and March 2018 for the 2017-2018 year.
