Fairytale science of materials
I’m interested in knowing what kind of clothing materials are durable and therefore ecological. My 2.5-year-old son does not yet understand the concept of material, but he usually enjoys this kind of events with beautiful colours and surfaces.

Cup of Therapy:
We had our kids’ portraits painted three years ago at Matti’s studio, and the experience was memorable, cosy and warm for all of us. Spirit animals are an awesome idea and bound to tickle the kids’ imagination. At least our 4-year-old should provide a proper challenge for Matti.
A visually interesting work that arouses interest and challenges kids and adults alike to face new kinds of encounters. Outdoor installations are a nice target for an autumnal promenade in the city with the family.

Children’s Design Week in the City Museum: Build your own puppet show
My 5-year-old daughter loves handicrafts, and I can imagine her really liking the puppet show workshop. Because the materials include ordinary juice cartons and cans, the instructions will be easy to apply at home.
Children’s Weekend: Flower Workshop
The Flower Workshop, which is part of the Children’s Weekend programme, sounds like a lovely activity for my daughter and me to enjoy together – we’re both crazy about flowers, and I think I’ll enjoy creating my own garland, too.
15 and 16 September
Children’s Weekend: Pop-up Playground – Charming Magic Forest!
My 2-year-old son does not yet have enough concentration skills for lengthy craft projects, but I think he’ll enjoy the playground built outside the boiler hall. A Magic Forest with rhyme, song and play sessions sounds like a perfect destination for an energetic boy, who loves music.
