Matariki is a star cluster that appears in our skies in the winter month of Pipiri (June-July) and marks the first month of the Maori lunar calendar. To celebrate the new year we are making spinning stars in our Craft Corner this month.
Stop in to Huia Lodge any Saturday or Sunday this month to colour in, cut out and string up your own spinning star.
All materials supplied, so you just need to pop-in. Activities suitable for 3 years+, parent supervision required.
Craft Corner is a do-it-yourself station inside Huia Lodge that you can stop in throughout the day. There are no instructors leading the crafts, it is self-lead.
Saturday 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th
Sunday 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th
10am - 4pm

We ask that all participants continue with their basic hygiene practices while at the event and in the park. This includes hand hygiene (washing for 20 seconds, drying thoroughly or using hand sanitiser), coughing or sneezing into your elbow, and avoiding touching your face. Hand sanitiser will be available at the event. If you are feeling unwell before the event, we ask that you stay at home.
