HUNDREDS of children will rediscover their inner magic at the Sunshine Coast's life-changing festival this weekend. The Conscious Life Festival hits the coast on the first weekend of August, and with it a two-day chock-a-block children's extravaganza "Kids Culture". Kids Culture is a unique and comprehensive Health and Wellbeing event that promotes conscious parenting & offers a safe and nurturing safe space over the weekend for families and children of all ages.
Kids Culture and The Conscious Life Festival organiser Laura Di Mambro is tenacious about the importance of a focus on children when it comes to educating communities on improving their health and wellbeing.
After all, if our youngest and most spirited little people are open to expanding their education when they are young – it holds promise that they will continue to in their future, according to Ms Di Mambro.
Kids Culture is like no other event seen before. It's a dedicated event specialising in health and wellbeing for children and promoting conscious parenting," she says.
There is a huge range of educational and informative seminars for parents on all children's related services & topics from nutrition, child development to holistic therapies as well as an extraordinary range of products & services that enhance kid's health & wellbeing."
Kids Culture will be a children's focused sanctuary concentrating on being a fun and magical place for kids to create, explore and learn.
