As part of our Matariki Programme, Toro Pikopiko Puppets are bringing their show Te Rerenga – The Flight to the Coal Bunker Studio at The PumpHouse Theatre on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th July. Te Rerenga is an engaging puppet show which brings to life ancient Maori rock art and re-tells the legend of  Pourangahua the Birdman and his epic flight to Aotearoa. Thanks to generous funding from Auckland Council we are able to offer entry by koha (donation) for this show but, as the Coal Bunker Studio has limited seating, we recommend booking online to avoid disappointment

Thinking outside the square, solving our own challenges, thinking creatively, working collaboratively, being innovative, taking risks - these are all things we want our kids to learn.And what's the best way for them to grow these skills?Being allowed to lead their own projects, follow their own curiosity, and develop a sense of wonder... in nature.

Do your kids get plenty of time playing freely in nature?If not, we are inviting them to play in nature these holidays (9 -20 July), so you can save your annual leave for real family holidays, while feeling secure in the knowledge that they are extending themselves, rather than being told what to do in yet another 'holiday' programme!Of course, playing in nature also builds immunity, as well as offering long-term physical and mental health benefits.

Conscious Kids has been running for three years in Auckland, and is starting this holidays in Hamilton.Our mission is to provide children with opportunities for free play in nature, within a framework of respect for themselves, others, and the environment.Check us out or book our programme're growing the next generation of #8 wire thinkers - literally.

Conscious Kids hosts 100% nature-based Holiday Programme as an antidote for technology, kids get the opportunity to have unstructured play in the bush like we did. Come get muddy, climb a tree and just play!
