WITH just over a week of the school hol­i­days left, chil­dren can en­joy their last few days of hol­i­days at West­field Mt Druitt.

The cen­tre has a huge va­ri­ety of free pro­grams and events for chil­dren all week, start­ing with their Kids in the Kitchen lunch box work­shop, which runs un­til Satur­day.

West­field will also be host­ing The Bud­ding Busi­ness Brains in­ter­ac­tive work­shops from 9.30am this Thurs­day and Fri­day.

The work­shop runs for three hours and teaches chil­dren how to be­come en­trepreneurs.

Young­sters will learn to de­velop con­fi­dence and cre­ativ­ity by cre­at­ing a busi­ness and de­vel­op­ing a prod­uct pro­to­type they can later sell.

A West­field spokes­woman said there was some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“We will be host­ing free ac­tiv­i­ties ... de­signed to be fun for kids and re­lieve the stress and ex­pense for par­ents, es­pe­cially dur­ing hol­i­days as par­ents some­times feel pres­sured to en­ter­tain chil­dren with some­thing dif­fer­ent ev­ery day,” the spokes­woman said.

Fun­park also is run­ning in Bid­will Square from 3-5pm to­day and Fri­day for ages six to 16. Chil­dren can en­joy hula-hoop­ing, film­mak­ing and street dance.

For those who want to beat the heat this Satur­day, the last Dive-in movie, Min­ions, will be screen­ing at Mt Druitt Pool.

Gates open at 7pm with the movie start­ing at 8pm.

Bbring a pic­nic rug or your favourite in­flat­able and sit back and re­lax.

Sis­ters Megan, 11, and Tara Aquilina, 12 make a splash at Mt Druitt Pool but young­sters can also watch their favourite movies at the pop­u­lar venue.
