September-October School Holidays 2020


Here are some great ways to keep the kids entertained during the school holidays, all without needing to leave home.

The Mad Food Science Program

Do you love doing experiments and having fun? Are you ready to become a Mad Food Scientist?

The Mad Food Science Program is a fun, interactive workshop for the whole family, that uses quirky experiments to teach children about why it is so important to eat more real food and less processed packet foods.

Bookings are essential as these workshops  will be highly interactive and will be held over ZOOM (a link will be sent to those who make a booking).

There are two workshops on offer: one designed for children in K-2 and one for children in upper primary (grades 3-6).

Fossil Frenzy

We're celebrating dinosaurs and fossils, just in time for Earth Science Week!

Listen to a colourful new dinosaur story and discover other prehistoric-themed books to read. Download fossil-related activities and colouring you can do at home (brought to you by Inspiring the ACT). You can even make you own fossil out of plaster or jelly.

Activities suitable for ages 4+

Floriade Reimagined

We’ve got lots of great activities and programs for you to watch, listen, download and do at home with us during Floriade Reimagined this spring. Click through for a downloadable activity booklet, flower and nature themed story times, Giggle & Wiggle and a simple DIY craft activity.

Activities are suitable for a range of ages from babies to primary school.

 Left Lane Outreach Theatre: Little Listeners Podcast

We are so excited to host Left Lane Outreach Theatre's Little Listeners Podcast. Enjoy their shows as special listening experiences from home and explore new places as we learn to understand ourselves and the world around us.

Brick Club Challenges

Do you love to play and create with LEGO® or other materials? Be part of our Brick Club challenge by listening to the stories and building something amazing inspired by them. You can also challenge yourself to build something from our list.
