Fish Printing T-Shirts
Print on t-shirts with fish in Kids’ Cove! Gyotaku is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice which dates back to the mid-1800s and was used by fishermen to record their catches. We use real fish to paint and make impressions on a t-shirt. Kids of all ages love Gyotaku. T-shirts cost $5 and printing is free! Hang your shirt up to dry while you tour festival, then stop on your way out to pick it up!

Kids' Boatbuilding
A perennial favorite and right of passage for all kids! Kids of all ages can design, build, rig and sail away with their own small wooden boat. Select a hull, a mast, some sailcloth, and before you know it, life slows down while you help hold a nail, and share the joy of building a boat! Then take the boat to the water to enjoy the sweetness of kids playing with boats on the water.
