A FEW WORDS ABOUT »POČITNIKARIJA 2017«

We have been active all summer in the Idrija Geopark. Together with Idrija's Association Friends of Youth, we prepared four workshops for children that took place at various locations in Idrija and its surroundings.

In the first half of July we organized a felting workshop. Children made various products from dry and wet felting such as keychains, coloured necklaces and bracelets.

The next activity, "Gravel is a playground," was carried out in Idrijska Bela - at Lajšt, where we played traditional games with pebbles: don't be angry, »vovkalca«, »tančula«, rotten egg, solid bridge, and made stone columns. Throughout the game, children learned about pebbles, their shapes and colours, and enjoyed the pleasant nature of the natural park.

The workshop "Finding the cave dwarf Perkmandlc" took place in Anthony's Main Road. First, we watched a short video about the history of mining in Idrija followed by a guided tour to the underground. On the way through the mine, we discovered the 500-year-old history of mining, the significance of using mercury, and at the end, we found the mischievous dwarf Perkmandlc.

The fourth and the last workshop was the production of "Mega Memory". Children first chose the most interesting local cultural or natural attraction and drew it on two wooden panels. The products will be used as a memory game within the Geopark.

We are pleased that the workshops were attended by a large number of children, and we are looking forward to the next "Počitnikarija 2018" workshops where we will surely meet again.
