How exciting does this sound! The 2nd Annual Moreton Kids Festival 2018 is about to hit us with a six - six worlds of fun! Kids, prepare yourselves for a day of adrenaline, excitement and adventure when the Moreton Kids Festival kicks off at Pine Rivers Park in Strathpine on Sunday, 7 October. There is so much to see and do, I'm hoping that we'll be able to cover everything in the one day!
The Moreton Kids Festival 2018 is back and ready to celebrate the wide-eyed wonderment and enthusiasm of the young, with a very full programme of family-friendly fun and entertainment. Live stage shows, activities, workshops, roving performers, food trucks, market stalls and so much more, will be the order of the day. Whatever your child's passion is at the moment, the Moreton Kids Festival guarantees to have them bursting with excitement, with six interactive zones to explore.
★ VILLA WORLD ACTIVE KIDS
The Villa World Active Kids zone will have the children jumping, bouncing, kicking, dodging, throwing and running, by involving the children in a series of fun, outdoor activities - all designed to get the kids moving. Key coordination and motor skills are developed at an early age and Villa World Active Kids zone is the place to be for children to get a taste of leading an energetic and active way of life. Please click here for the full Villa World Active Kids programme.
The Sesame Lane Creative Kids' Zone is a kids' paradise for all the young, budding artists out there. A little birdie told me that once the kids have entered Sesame Lane, they'll never want to leave! With everything from hands-on arts and crafts activities, face painting and fun art installations, the whole family might not want to leave!

The Telstra Tech Kids' zone is for all the children out there, who are more than likely more tech-savvy than their parents and grandparents. My grandson, who is fast approaching five, can sure teach me a thing or two when it comes to technology and I-Pads. The Telstra Tech zone is a fun, innovative and interactive zone, that will provide children with the opportunity to learn about the tech-driven world that we live in. This zone is designed to introduce coding, augmented reality (ok, I'm lost), robotics and drones to the little ones!
My grandson and I are definitely at this stage in our lives! Image: www.pinterest
