III. Forest Hokey Pokey with Diane Brussell
Sunday, November 30 from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
The Forest Hokey Pokey, really is… what it’s all about! Diane has written a Children’s Forest Hokey Pokey that wraps mycelia around the tree roots & creates a mycorrhizal network… So join in the network by learning the song & putting it to dance!

All puppets, raps and songs are being created to go on tour with the Forest Alphabet book in Spring 2015. We’re taking the vision of a forest in trust to the children, to coastal BC!

All workshop instruction is being donated to the FTCCIS by Meinsje, Diane and Dan; THANK YOU!!! Imagine… a forest in trust to the children!

II. Forest Alphabet Rap with Bluejay Dan
Saturday, November 22 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Bring along your Forest Alphabet book for inspiration. Challenge yourself to find the words that rhyme with biodiversity, photosynthesis, alligator lizard, liverworts, and start rapping! Dan is there to spur you on!

I. Forest Puppet Making Workshop with Meinsje Vlaming
Sat. Nov. 15 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm & Sun. Nov. 16 from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Imagine your favourite Children’s Forest character and bring that idea to the workshop, where Meinsje will teach you how to turn your character into a puppet! You will be working with papier mache, paints and cloth. The papier mache needs to dry overnight, so that is why you return Sunday - to paint and dress the puppets.
