Kids these days are more ‘switched on’ than ever before, and while we all love how tech-savvy they’ve become, it’s really important for children and teenagers to engage in recreational activities that stimulate their creativity — a digital detox for juniors if you will.
Classbento offers workshops for young kids, teenage kids, and big kids at heart (we’re looking at you, Mum and Dad!) but if you’re not quite sure what is considered an age-appropriate activity for your child, here’s a rough guide to some of Classbento’s top kid-friendly workshops:
• For kids aged 5 to 10: Whether they’re learning how to make macarons or macaroni and cheese, a cooking class is an ideal activity for young kids. Classbento also offers music lessons and a whole raft of painting courses and arts and crafts workshops, all of which are perfect for energising the minds of children.
• For teenagers: Terrarium building workshops and candle making classes are hugely popular when it comes to teens and young adults, as are flower arranging courses and foreign language lessons. All of these activities are great for stimulating the brain and instilling a real sense of achievement.
Classbento’s workshops take place all over Sydney every day of the week, morning, noon and night, so you and your kids will always be able to find a class that suits your schedules.
If you’re interested in booking Classbento’s workshops for your children’s birthday parties, you’re in luck — almost all classes have a ‘request a custom time’ option available. With the click of a button, you can request a private workshop for your kids and their closest friends at a time of your choice.
Alternatively, why not give a Classbento workshop to your child as a gift? Either book them in for a specific workshop or simply buy them a gift voucher so that they can choose an experience for themselves. Classbento will send out a lovely little gift card or you can get the voucher emailed to you as a nice, easy-to-print PDF.
By attending a Classbento workshop, you and your family will be supporting a local small business or artist, and one dollar from every Classbento workshop booking gets donated to Dementia Australia — so you’ll be doing yourselves and others a big favour. Get that good karma flowing!
