Holiday activities to beat the boredom
There is no reason for kids to get bored these school holidays, with a host of free activities on the Cairns Esplanade and at Cairns Libraries branches.
A taste of the World Cup will come to the Esplanade on Wednesday as part of a program to keep youngsters active during the school break.
The Ready Steady Go Kids World Cup Soccer Games is a free, fun-filled games session suitable for children aged 3-8 years.
Cairns Regional Council is also presenting Kids’ Zumba, bouldering and Fit Kids Fitness Games free of charge to all participants.
For those who like to get a bit musical, a free ukulele workshop will follow the soccer session on Wednesday. Storytelling, a magic and makeup show and hula workshop are also on offer.
Participants will be invited to unleash their creativity on a growing collection of Lego blocks. The holiday sessions will be a pre-curser to an ongoing theme-based Lego program.
Lego Mania will visit Earlville, Manunda and Babinda Libraries during the winter holidays.
A range of art and craft sessions will also be held at various library branches and regular weekly activities will continue during the holidays.
Numbers are limited and bookings are essential for all library holiday activities. Contact the relevant library to book.
All holiday activities require a parent or carer to attend for the duration. For outdoor activities, please bring a hat, sunscreen and water to drink.
