Dance competition

Children's Day this year is all about getting out in nature, so why not hop into your backyard or head down to your local park and create a dance for Children’s Day.

What’s more, if you film your dance and share it on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok with the hashtags #ChildrensDayNZ and #PutTamarikiFirst you could go in the draw to win some cool prizes!
