The 2015 Tumbleweeds Kids Clubhouse, sponsored by University of Utah Health Care and Animal Jam, will be located in the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center Rose Room. In between film screenings festival guests will have the opportunity to participate in numerous activities, including: an obstacle course, Microsoft Just Dance mini dance floor, STEM learning activity presented by Animal Jam, and an arts and crafts station presented by The Wonderment.

Presented & Sponsored by Animal Jam
Animal Jam is an online playground for kids who love animals and the outdoors! In the world of Jamaa, animated animals come to life. At the Animal Jam booth in the Tumbleweeds Kids Clubhouse, you get the chance to bring some of the creatures from Jamaa to life using stop motion animation. Work with Animal Jam’s videographer to learn the techniques behind stop motion animation and make a fun Animal Jam craft to take home.

The Wonderment is a web platform
(developed by the nonprofit organization Kidnected World) where kids build a new sense of global belonging by creating with other kids around the world to make a tangible impact in their communities. As kids create and connect through creative challenges called Paths, their participation helps fuel and inform social good projects happening around the globe, backed by a community of passionate donors.

The Wonderment is excited to celebrate and connect creativity in the Tumbleweeds Kids Clubhouse with a series of Path projects inspired by Tumbleweeds film themes. Come create and share with the world!
