Family Day 2024 with VICI Learning

WasteKnot was so excited to team up with VICI Learning and the City of New Westminster to provide Family Day activities for kids K-12 at the beautiful Queensborough Community Centre. 

The younger children spent time creating their very own Family Tree made from sustainable materials (real tree branches, molding clay to make it stand, tools to carve and create patterns, and leaf-shaped paper to write family member’s names on attached to the branches with mini paper clips). Families were also encouraged to bring photos of family members to add if they wish.

The older children were encouraged to create an Electric Wire Maze (with adult supervision) that taught them how to connect copper wires to electric currents, create a shape with the wires, and then try to follow the wire with a wired hoop without the wires together or you will hear a “buzz” sound- and all in the fastest time you can! It was an exciting day of learning and growing with families in New West. WasteKnot is proud to help bring community events such as this one to life by coordinating volunteers, setting up meetings, communicating with all involved and developing a timeline, help with an eco-friendly water and refreshment station, and facilitating the event from set up to clean up.
