Wintery Wonders at the V&A Waterfront


Family friendly holiday activities at the V&A Waterfront this July!

Kids Studio: From Farm to Family 4 – 17 July

Kids Studio: From Farm to Family is an interactive learning experience for young children, designed by Cape Town–based Studio-H to teach children more about healthy, balanced eating and where the food we consume comes from. ‘Farm to Family’ is a five-part journey, based on five pillars: (1) Discover, (2) Learn, (3) Grow, (4) Taste, and (5) Share. Each step will have a specific learning area and activity attached to it, ranging from choosing food stuffs based on the different food groups, to tracing the food journey and making a ‘face mask’ of different foods.

Three 1.5-hour sessions will be held each day, to facilitate a full experience for each child. Please note that while the programme is free, entry will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
