Looking for kids activities at home to keep the little ones entertained? Help them to develop their creative skills by making a koibori fish with an online class live-streamed from sunny Aus!

That's right, with this virtual class, your youngsters will learn from a patient and experienced Aussie teacher whilst getting crafty with a Japanese tradition. It's a truly global experience (despite being stuck in UK lockdown)!

Koinobori fish are traditionally made for children's day in Japan. Landscapes across Japan are decorated with koinobori to honour children in the hope they will grow up healthy and strong in the future. So let's get lost in some cultural traditions and unique kids arts and crafts for a little lockdown escapism. A koinobori fish also acts as a powerful symbol during this difficult time and who knows, it could even help them to grow up healthy and strong!

In this live online class, you will:

  • Make two koinobori fish to hang in your windows, to send out a message that you are doing OK!
  • Learn how to make a koi fish based on the traditional Japanese koinbori which translates as 'carp streamers'.
  • Work with a young person to assist them to construct their fish (this is a great adult/child bonding project).

This unique virtual class is perfect for a kids' birthday party or to add to your list of cute indoor activities for kids (that will keep them quiet for a bit).
