There are ample opportunities to see this and other kids' movies with a range of dates throughout January.

Magic comes to life on stage when BATS Theatre Co Inc. present the renowned pantomime Cinderella on various dates at the Lake Kawana Community Centre, starting on Saturday, January, 10.

Kids and big kids can join in the fun with lots of singing and dancing with many laughs to be shared.

The show recreates the traditional fairytale of Cinderella, complete with a handsome prince, ugly step sisters and Buttons, Cinderella’s friend, for only $14 per ticket.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, Lake Kawana Community Centre presents The Listies Make You LOL! on Tuesday, January 13.

The comedy is perfect for children aged six to 12 years and features alien attacks, toilet paper guns, spew, the rudest word in the world and the most disgusting undies you have ever seen in your life!

Tickets are $18 or only $15 for SCvip members. It's perfect for the whole family and guaranteed to make them laugh (including the Dads).

If your child loves drama then they will have a ball at the Little Seed Theatre Company’s week long intensive drama workshop at Nambour Civic Centre.

Kids will have fun while receiving drama training with the opportunity to act in two full pantomime performances at the end of the week, showcasing to family and friends all they have learnt.

Last, but certainly not least, if your child enjoys outdoor activities, you can’t go past what’s on offer at the Sunshine Coast Stadium these school holidays.

The Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy, in conjunction with Kawana Aquatic Centre, will offer skilled bike, swimming and running sessions.
