Happenings and Upon a Tree are delighted to present Caterpillar as part of the One Family 'Family Day' in Wolftone Square on the 15th May 11am-5pm.
This is a free non ticketed event and is suitable for children aged 3+.
Half labyrinth, half Chinese dragon, the Caterpillar will bend and wind its way across Wolfe Tone Square. But a lot of team-work, communication, negotiation and compromise will have to take place before the Caterpillar is complete!!
Starting life as two parallel lines of rope, the caterpillar will emerge when many coloured cloth layers are pegged by the kids along the rope to create a moving, swaying, tunnel-like effect.
As the cloth tunnel extends around them, the children will be able to move up and down the Caterpillar, seen from the gap in the cloth above their heads.
The far end of the caterpillar will open into a seated area,complete with blackboards, onto which large butterflies will have been stencilled. Chalk will be provided so children will be able to free-draw or colour in the stencilled butterflies.
