What do your toys do when you’re at school during the day? Do your Pokemon get up to mischief? Does Polly Pocket hop on a skateboard and fight crime?
In this holiday workshop, students in Years K-2 will unlock the power of their imaginations and go on a 2-day journey to unlock the mysterious and exciting worlds of their favourite toys. Students will work in pairs and groups to devise short scenes and bring their toys to life. They will be aided by music and props to enter the world of fun, play and exploration.
Parents are invited to attend a mini-performance by the students at the end of the second day.
Students will also receive a Certificate of Participation.
