Family yoga for the whole family
Children, parents, and even grandparents will discover a new way to spend time together in this yoga lesson from YogaShala. Family Yoga is particularly suited for young children who usually have difficulties focusing, as well as for older children and parents. The lesson works with the presence of several generations of a family, which makes it possible to transfer this exercise to the home environment as well.
Tent full of music
The students of musical and pedagogical faculties led by Eva Šušková and Martina Janegová have prepared a lot of activities: you can make musical instruments with them, play those instruments, and create this way the Recycled Orchestra that will also appear on the big stage.
The Montessori Club in Trenčín will offer to children activities and aids that can help naturally develop their skills and knowledge. The Club follows the principle of “respect and be respected” and applies the knowledge and practices of Montessori educational methodology. One of its main ideas is that a child is a creator of him/herself: all children have a unique personality. Visit the trained instructors in the workshop tent.
The pottery pallet corner ins the workshop tent is the ideal place for children to get acquainted with pottery and make their own clay bowl or a jug. The two pottery pallets will make this popular activity available to several small potters at the same time.
For those interested in knitting, there will be lots of yarn and enthusiastic knitting lecturers. Knitting is said to be “grandma yoga”, but last year it was a great success for both males and females regardless of the age.
CirKus-Kus is the first Slovak school of modern circus and the traditional refreshment in the children's tent. It teaches healthy movement, creativity, and abilities, which are important skills for all children and adults alike. It focuses to teach children and make them perform gymnastics, juggling, acrobatics, balance, and theatre.
Eco-activities and creative workshops
The World Wildlife Fund / WWF is a worldwide organization known with its logo of a panda. It will offer playful interactive eco activities and workshops about nature in their separate stand. Children will creatively discover nature, make animals, paint and play here. And if things go well, a river full of life will will be created at the end.
The favourite classes of drama education will once again allow the children to “give the life a dry run”. In a fun and playful way, they will learn from the different situations and challenges they will encounter later in life. This year, kids can look forward to two workshops here: Witches and Beyond Seven Mountains.
We will peep at the backstage of the International Witches and Magicians Meeting to find out who their biggest enemy is and who theyʼd better turn into a mouse. Come to get scared a little in the real horror for kids and help us discover who is truly nice under and who just acts nicely...
Beyond Seven Mountains
Once upon a time, beyond seven mountains and seven valleys... Everyone knows this beginning of a fairy tale. We can find out where the beginning of the Slovak fairy tales is, who first narrated them, or whether the kingdom is saved by one of the three brothers or their sister, when we narrate Dobšinskýʼs fairy tales and experience them on our own.
Come shed light on dreams!
Artforumʼs interactive book show for children over 5 years of age. Dona Kichotová and her friend Sancha wander, and their packs are stuffed with kitchenware and willingness to fantasise. It only takes a second, and they find themselves conquering an ancient city during an argument. It can easily happen that even the audience will get involved in this journey. And then, they all fly to the moon or discover a new continent. The staged play with props on motifs of the book Time Travel by Peter Goes was prepared by Martina Jánošíková and Monika Kompaníková.
Do your kids brush their teeth properly? Dental Alarm workshop by Curaprox will show kids how to take care of teeth properly and will provide parents with a guidance on how to make brushing the teeth fun every day.
