Preparations are ramping up for the Mandurah Children’s Festival with less than a month to go to the popular family event.

Members of Mandurah Men’s Shed have put the finishing touches on a special doll house that’s up for grabs at this year’s event.

Mandurah Men’s Shed have been involved with the children’s festival for many years. The not-for-profit organisation consists of around 30 retirees who use their woodworking and painting skills to create toys to donate to children in need.

Each year the group of volunteers provide free toys at the festival for children to paint, glue wheels onto and take home. Once again, attendees will also be able to purchase toys from the group with proceeds going back into buying additional supplies to make more toys.

The Mandurah Children’s Festival has a long history of offering unique and fun experiences for local children and families.

This year’s event will be on Sunday, October 29 from 10am until 3pm on Mandurah’s Eastern Foreshore and will be based upon the theme of discovery.

There will be lots of activities, entertainment, learning opportunities and above all fun. Every year the family-friendly event features free interactive workshops, activities, a dress up competition, stage entertainment, and more.

For a chance to win the unique, hand-made doll house, enter the draw at the Mandurah Men’s Shed stall at the event.
