Kids? play recycled



LOOKING for something different for the kids to do in the holidays that won't cost the earth ? and in fact may help save it?

Gecko Recycle in Boyd Street, Tugun is once again offering children's workshops, where kids can let their creativity loose on a range of recycled materials, including timber, paint, fabric and tiles.

Manager Jen O'Driscoll said the youngsters just love the freedom of working with recycled materials, especially as they get to take whatever they make home.

"We certainly haven't had too many disappointed yet," Ms O'Driscoll said.

There are a range of workshops available throughout the holidays, including clay play, magnets, free expression and plaques.

Sessions start at 10.30am and are open to children aged three to 13, with parents welcome to stay if they wish, or drop their children off. The cost is $7.50 per child.

All profits from Gecko Recycle are channelled into Gecko's bush regeneration work across the Gold Coast.
