The Great Play, Swap, and Recycle Festival

Motherhood is hosting another swap festival! Bring your outgrown toys and children's clothing for a second chance through swapping. Bring up to 5 items of each and discover exciting "new" items. Let's actively reduce our play footprint and keep items circulating longer in the circular economy. Join us for creative workshops all day where you can recycle, repair, and upcycle together. Participation is free.

Toy Repair Station

Bring in toys that are glitchy, not working, or just need a little love. We're giving nearly discarded items a new lease on life through repairs. Because far too often, we're too quick to think something's ready for the landfill.

Workshop: Take Apart and Put Together

Want to learn more about repairs or just curious about how toys work on the inside? Join our Take Apart and Put Together workshop. Guided by a handy father, we'll dismantle and reassemble things, learn about how batteries function, and explore other exciting toy experiments.

Upcycle and Recycle Play Station

Do you really need fancy toys to play with? We don't think so! You can have just as much fun with all those unnecessary items your parents are about to throw away. Cardboard tubes, cans, mandarin nets, and cardboard are all we need to bring our imagination to life. Will you help us build a massive marble run?
