Heaps of awesome holiday fun at your library
  • Wednesday 18 June 2014

Sunshine Coast Council libraries have come to every parent’s rescue with a range of great free activities to entertain the children during the June and July holiday break.

There is something for kids of all ages.

For those children who love getting creative there are some cool craft activities including string art, french knitting and tissue box knitting.

You can even build your own mini terrarium, all kinds of bugs and butterflies or create your own manga character softy out of felt and fluff.

For the science geeks we have Robogals robotic workshops for girls and boys aged eight and over.

Minecrafters are invited to create 3D paper crafts, cardboard Steve swords and box Creeper heads.

Local authors will abound with the talented young author and fairy house creator Samara Welbourne running a Making fairy houses workshop at Maleny Library.

Chris Collin will be showcasing his new children’s book Doug the Bug with song, dance and fun at Maleny and Beerwah Libraries. Indigenous author Gregg Dreise will launch his new children’s book Silly birds for NAIDOC Week and introduce children of all ages to the wonders of Dreamtime stories and the didgeridoo.
