There’s also an area for young ‘farmers’ to plant seeds or little ‘chefs’ to show off their cooking skills. Art classes are available, ranging from drawing, painting and sculpture. There’s also a small loom for kids to learn how weave. Your kids like to dress up? No problem, there are plenty of colourful costumes to choose from. All activities are recorded in a ‘passport book’.
