We are happy to discuss what would work best for your event. Some of our activities can be inside with extra preparation. We create activities on an on-going basis so if there is something that you are looking for that you do not see on our list we are open to creating something to suit your needs. Ask us! melissa@thechildrensartfactory.com or call the studio 226-500-1544. We focus on open-ended activities which do not require instruction. All of our activities work best when children are allowed to explore them with as much freedom as possible.

Builder Boards are the first phase in The Playbourhood Project to bring communities together through play. Builder Boards are an open-ending building material that allows children of all ages to create houses, forts, dens and whatever they wish. A set of builder boards would keep a group of 30 or more children occupied for hours. PLEASE NOTE: Builder Boards are a shared resource between all the Neighbourhood Groups within the City of Guelph. To that end, there is no charge to borrow them if you are a registered Neighbourhood Group within the City of Guelph.
