From Monday – Friday from 10:30pm -2:30pm each day, Westfield is giving children the opportunity to give back to the environment and to learn about New Zealand’s biodiversity, all while having fun for free (and being kept occupied!)
There will be two activities running over the two weeks of school holidays:
Week one: Create a Butterfly Feeder
Create and decorate their own butterfly feeder. Kids will learn about the food requirements of the Monarch Butterfly. They will also learn about how to increase caterpillars on their swan plant.
Week two: Decorate a Swan Plant
Decorate their own sticker for their pot plant and then pot up a swan plant to take home for their garden. The kids will also learn about the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly and get a basic understanding of gardening.
Monty the Monkey will also be roaming around Westfield Newmarket during the below times:
Thursday 5th October to Saturday 7th October, 11.00am – 2.00pm
Thursday 12th October to Saturday 14th October, 11.00am – 2.00pm
