What kid doesn’t love building sandcastles at the beach? With Sand Sculpting Australia’s larger than life “Friends, Foes and Superheroes” exhibition there’s something for the entire family to enjoy! This iconic annual event (featuring the work of 21 talented national and international artists) is once again on till the end of April so there’s still plenty of time to make a day of it. Think of it as a giant outdoor gallery featuring famous, much-loved characters everyone can connect with.
Despite travelling into town in the heat, we had a fabulous time.
One of the best children’s plays we have seen. So interactive, super funny and terrific music.
For anyone thinking of going, there was a craft table set up to make your own tin of Tiger Food before the show, which was good fun too.
Children and adults in the audience had a laugh out loud great time.
Remy (7) thoroughly enjoyed it - as did Remy’s mummy!
From the minute my two littles aged two and five tore through the front gates of Ripponlea House and Gardens, the magic started as they scampered from one fabulous activity to the next, and better yet all the activities were included in the ticket price!
So much more than teddy bears and picnic rugs, although of course there were plenty of these, they rode ponies, practised circus skills, made gorgeous creations at the various craft stations, met a fairy, tumbled on squishy play equipment and even held a snake! And when the excitement was all too much we could relax on a blanket beneath the beautiful trees that fill the enormous landscaped gardens.
