There is just one week left to get along to the Monaco Green Days at Stars n Bars beside Port Hercule in Monaco.
Following the creation of Monacology the last few years, Stars n Bars is continuing their involvement in the creation of the first Eco Hub in the principality whereby they facilitate a number of sustainable events.
Creative / Recycling workshops for kids
For the remaining week until 31 July, you can take your kids along each day between 6.30pm-9pm for free creative workshops lead by a facilitator who will teach kids how to make fun crafts out of recycled items such as bottle tops, plastic bottles, milk cartons.
I love these sort of workshops for kids using every day items to make creative objects and ignite a sense of awareness about reusing and recycling – my eldest son is always so proud of his creations….rocket ships made from cardboard rolls, aquariums crafted from cereal boxes etc – kid’s imaginations are really something and I feel there are so many children who rely too much on technology to entertain them (iPads, game consoles, television) that hands-on craft sessions are excellent for creative thinking and problem solving.
Kids will also receive a colouring book daily with environmental themes including endangered animals, renewable energy, respect for the planet
On the terrace where the workshops take place, the garden comprised of bio herbs and vegetables is then used in the restaurant menu as well as drinks at the bar, so at the same time as children are enjoying fun workshops they will learn about various plants and their seasonal uses.
All children’s workshops are free of charge and can be adapted for ages 3 through to 10 years of age.
Well done Stars n Bars for this initiative and proving that environmental education and play can work together!
