Youth Area

Be A Kid

Have you ever made your own paper? Have you ever made your own paper from a bike powered blender? Meet Barabra:

Each year, EarthFest offers a space just for kids. This “free build” Makers Space for crafts and creative exploration offers kid friendly activities and projects. Kids will be able to approach the station and build crafts out of the provided recyclable materials with the guidance of volunteers. And yes, they can hop on Barbara and blend their own paper. Besides crafts, the Youth Area has a variety of green games and activities hosted by community partners each year.
