Kid Stuff


Starbelly Jam is a child-friendly festival for the entire family, with many fun activities for kids, and plenty of knee-high entertainment.

Our covered craft free-for-all zone is fully stocked with a wide assortment of do-dads and crazy odds and ends that are just begging to be transformed into festive hats and other wearable decorations. This year kids will have a chance to make three very special crafts under the guidance of members of Compassion Gorilla from Victoria.

Magic abounds around the grounds, with jugglers juggling and all sorts of clowning around. Our Starbelly Parade is always a big hit with kids, both young and old, as the procession dances around the grounds to its own music, singing and laughing.

Starbelly Jam is held in the Crawford Bay Park, so we have swings, slides, teeter-totters and more, for the fun and enjoyment of our youngest guests. The park has lots of room so there’s plenty of space to toss balls or frisbees, or just to run around with abandon, and when the weather’s hot we have fancy sprinklers to play around and cool down with.

children 12 and under get in free!

There will be entertainment for kids of all ages!

DETAILS ON KIDS CRAFTS in the Pavilion with Compassion Gorilla:

Mask Making for Kids
Join us for a mask-making extravaganza! Using everyday materials as well as anything you’d find in a typical craft cupboard, we’ll make the masks you’ve always dreamed of. Learn what it means to wear a mask and why mask-making has been such an important part of theater for centuries. Ages 3 and up.

Making Magic
Join Wanda the clown for a day of dress-up, dancing, bubbles, puppetry, games and more. Embrace your inner child and take a walk (or a wiggle) on the creative side. Ages 1 – 111.

Build a Mobile
Use your imagination at the mobile station to build dazzling decorations for any kind of space. Inspired by the art of  the work of Alexander Calder (artist/circus enthusiast), we’ll build bright and beautiful mobiles. Ages 4 and up.

 

*Parents, please make use of our Milky Way Family Tent in the cedars near the playground if you need a rest with your little ones. Come read a story, put your feet up, and have some quiet time.
