Council keeps kids happy these school holidays

There’s no reason for winter blues these school holidays thanks to Redland City Council’s kids’ activity program.

Redland City Council’s Cultural and Environmental spokesperson Cr Lance Hewlett said Council was again offering a great variety of activities for children aged 4 – 16 years to keep school holiday boredom at bay.

“Our Redland Libraries, Redland Art Gallery and Redland IndigiScapes Centre teams have combined to create a great range of events these school holidays,” Cr Hewlett said.

“While the teams work hard to ensure there’s plenty to do during school breaks, these facilities are fantastic community resources that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
“The school holidays are a great opportunity for families to visit their Council facilities and rediscover all they have to offer.”

IndigiScapes are hosting a free ‘Seek Unearth Explore Family Fun Day’ on Friday 3 July with environmental activities, arts and craft, plant bingo, weed weaving, scavenger hunts and more.

Redland Libraries free activities over the two week period include a ‘Wild Things Day Out’, African safari craft and the opportunity to learn how to make a video game and controller or your own music video.

Redland Art Gallery will host workshops including basket weaving with Rosie Harvest, jewellery-making with Quandamooka artist Delvene Cockatoo-Collins and wood transfer art with artists Chez Beauvardia – a small fee applies for the Redland Art Gallery workshops and bookings are required.

 All activities in the Redland City Council school holiday program are offered at a low cost or free of charge but may require bookings prior to attendance.
