Sydney Children's Festival Part 1 - Grug, Liss dresses up and Wishing on a wall!

Still days after our first visit we're reeling over our visit to Sydney Children's Festival!  I am not joking, this is the best.thing.ever. for kids during the school holidays!

In its fourth year, Sydney Children's Festival is set at Carriageworks - and as you walk in you may feel like it's strangely familiar.... it's where they filmed 'So You Think You Can Dance Australia' and 'My Kitchen Rules' (which incidentally its second series is filming there again shortly).   The best thing is it is indoors and runs rain, hail or shine - but has enormous windows so you can soak up the glorious weather we're having.

I would be here all day telling you about the fabulous stuff, so I'll just summarise here what we did on some of our first visit (we're SO going back before it ends!!) in photos over a few posts today - and  over this week you'll see more detailed reports over at the Carriageworks blog!

OK, so here goes!

The only difficulty you may find with the festival is deciding what to do first!  So when you walk in and get your stickers, do look at the daily planner (you can download them from here too) and work out what you're going to do - because the kids will be so excited they'll want to do everything at once!

Based on the books about the little haystack who turned into an endearing little creature.  The production is mesmerising.  I swear I could have flung stuff at the frills and they wouldn't have flinched.  It's very interactive and I think well worth a visit - it's only playing until Saturday - so get your groove on, there should be tickets left at the box office or buy them from here.

Costume corner - FREE activity - 10-2pm track 12

Wishing Wall - FREE ACTIVITY - Just outside Track 12

I'll be back later with some more!  Have you been this year or any other year?
