Get ready to grab the kids and jump into a world of wild play, creative imagination and skill-building, with the ever popular City Makers program returning for the school holidays.

The MET, in partnership with Wildlings Forest School and Sunshine Coast Council’s Living Smart initiative, will run the City Makers across three days during the June school holidays, encouraging kids aged 3+ to create art, tinker, design and construct miniature cities. 

Kids can also engage in nature-based play activities in the kitchen garden area with Robyn Cook, the Kitchen Garden Teacher.

Trained staff will help kids learn how to use the real hand-tools provided to bring their imaginings to life.

The Colombian Coffee Co. will be open on site for hot drinks and tasty treats; remember to bring your own coffee cup if possible and show the young ones you value the planet.

Previous City Makers programs have sold out, so you’ll need to act fast to book your tickets.
