Workshops for Kids at LIB

EAKK! for KIDS

Family Love Village (FLV) is a community group based in Los Angeles, that is becoming the foremost model for support of conscious families and caregivers. FLV’s mission is to connect and support families and caregivers locally to learn and practice conscious parenting. Information, resources, and support allow families to develop a gently guided approach to communicating with their children, as well as the ability to make natural, holistic and eco-friendly decisions.

FLV is so excited and honored to be back to LIB for our 7th year in a row! Our FLV program allows everyone to get connected and celebrate life through our series of activities for kids and families:

EAKK! 2 Go (EcoArt Kidz Kollectiv!) is an eco-interactive environment for children where they can discover and learn the value of creating fun and educational art projects from recycled materials. Our local FLVillagers collect household items, as well as items from schools and restaurants to create eco-friendly art projects for the children that not only prevent junk from going into the landfills and oceans, but helps to broaden the families’ perspective by envisioning “junk” as art!

To learn more about our mission, vision, as well as past and future monthly gatherings, please visit www.familylovevillage.com.
PLEASE NOTE: During the EAKK! 2 Go workshops, there will be other fun activities/shows happening at Kidz Village for families to participate in, such as Dr. Solar and Drawing Big for Little People.

At all times, we strongly suggest at least one parent or caregiver being present with their children. Family Love Village is usually NOT a day care where parents can drop off their kids. The ONLY time that Family Love Village will be watching children is on Saturday during The Sacred Masculine and the Femininity Within Workshop, on Sunday during Conscious Parenting Workshop, and for the Saturday night Slumber Party. For the rest of the eco-activities and workshops, we always encourage fun participatory involvement for the family, as a whole. Thank you.
