Have you ever wished you could be less dependent on mass-produced items from the supermarket, less reliant on tradespeople for those around-the-home jobs or that your lifestyle was less stressful?

- Choose a craft or skill - from weaving to metalwork - that suits you and discover the satisfaction that comes from making something with your own hands
- Enjoy the simple pleasures of traditional children's games and pastimes and revel in the sense of adventure that accompanies such outdoor pursuits as bushwalking, camping or canoeing
