Nurture their green thumb with terrarium and kokedama classes

Your son or daughter can try their hand at creating a little garden in a jar (a terrarium), or little Japanese-style moss balls (Kokedama), while learning about plants and their ecosystems. They'll love designing their own landscape, and choosing exactly which pebbles and plants (and even little animal figurines) to use. Plus, they will get to take home a terrarium or kokedama to continue caring for at home, which is why these Sydney workshops are one of the best indoor activities for kids!

Unleash their inner artist with painting classes

painting class for kids

Bring out your child’s creative flair with painting classes that'll teach them the fundamentals of colour mixing, perspective and brush strokes. They can even learn the traditional Japanese art of Sumi-e painting, or paint a landscape onto fabric. Who knows, you might have the next Monet in your family!

Create something special with pottery classes

things to do in sydney with kids

If your kids love hands-on activities, you can’t go past pottery classes for kids. Working with clay is a great way to express creativity and hone manual dexterity skills. Your kid will get to make their own clay creation from scratch, which they can then personalise by adding various details and patterns. They'll learn about different materials and techniques while enjoying seeing their one-of-a-kind masterpiece take shape during these Sydney pottery classes!

Stitch something original with sewing classes

Sewing isn't just for adults anymore! Kids can learn to stitch too—many find it to be therapeutic and satisfying—while getting creative with colour combinations, fabrics and embellishments. Perfect for kids of any age (including those as young as six years old), they'll come away from this workshop with new skills and perhaps their new favourite hobby.

Capture their imagination with photography courses

If your child loves playing around with your family camera, why not take it a step further and enrol them in a photography class? They'll learn the basics of photography and get to take home some beautiful photos they've taken themselves. It's an activity that'll help them appreciate the world around them in a different way!

Get crafty with a macramé workshop

macrame for beginners

Make the most of your Creative Kids vouchers at macramé classes in Sydney! Macramé is a great way to foster a child's creativity and manual dexterity. Plus, they can make something cool that they can take home and hang in their bedroom! Kids will learn the basic knots of macramé, as well as more complex techniques such as fringing. Who knows—they might even start a business selling their handmade creations one day!

Play with flowers at colourful floristry classes

Utilise your NSW Creative Kids vouchers with floristry classes for kids! They'll get to learn about different floral varieties and practice the basics of flower arranging. Plus, they'll be able to take home their own creative bouquet, flower crown or table centrepiece. It's a great way to explore their artistic side while having fun at the same time! It’s no wonder these fragrant classes are one of our most popular Sydney school holiday activities.

Mould polymer clay into statement jewellery pieces
