Childspace Early Childhood Institute
Our MenzShed was involved in a special teacher-only day with 8 teams from the Wellington staff of Childspace Early Childhood Institute who completed activities around the Waikanae Beach area.
The stop at the MenzShed involved the teams having 25 minutes to assemble a children’s BBQ table or planter box. MenzShed Kapiti had kit-sets ready for the teams to assemble, and provided advice and supervision as required.
The Amazing Race
Another team activity event at our shed was involvement in the Waikanae Kindergarten fund raising competition, The amazing Race, which had 27 teams having to complete a variety of challenges. Our event consisted of following instructions to assemble prefabricated stoat traps which were then passed on to DOC.
Children’s holiday programme
One activity in a children’s holiday program had the children assembling and putting the finishing touches on timber stilts prefabricated by our members.
An enjoyable exercise with some children having their first go at carpentry skills.
