Muddy fun only nat­u­ral

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

GET muddy, be ac­tive and en­joy na­ture these school hol­i­days.

The City of Can­ning's Muddy Hands Fes­ti­val will be held on Sun­day at the Kent Street Weir.

Aimed at three to 15year-olds, the fes­ti­val en­cour­ages chil­dren and fam­i­lies to en­joy play­ing out­doors and among na­ture.

Kids will have fun build­ing cub­bies and forts, take part in mud play and cre­ate na­ture crafts.

Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said he was ex­cited about the re­turn of the fes­ti­val.

“The Muddy Hands Fes­ti­val pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote the ben­e­fits of na­ture play to our com­mu­nity with our part­ner Na­ture Play WA,” he said.

The smoke-free event runs from 10am-3pm and at­ten­dees are en­cour­aged to bring their re­us­able drink bot­tles and cof­fee cup as the event is low waste.

Sup­ported by WALGA, there will also be an op­por­tu­nity for you to re­cy­cle your con­tain­ers and re­ceive 10c back. Bring clean and empty bev­er­age cans, plas­tic and glass bot­tles, and flavoured milk car­tons.
