Build­ing with their own hands

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

BIRD houses and bright colours were the fo­cus of kids at Wednesday’s art ac­tiv­i­ties.

Each week the Ma­reeba Shire Coun­cil Library on Byrnes Street helps grow chil­dren’s minds by run­ning cre­ative ac­tiv­i­ties.

This week kids used mal­lets and glue to put to­gether their own lit­tle wooden bird houses.

They were then re­quired to paint them, wait for them to dry and then dec­o­rate them.

The 28 kids at Wednesday’s ses­sion used their fine mo­tor skills and imag­i­na­tions.

While kids waited for their houses to dry they did dot paint­ings and dec­o­rated their own cook­ies with ic­ing sugar.

Next week the library will be hold­ing a Teddy Bears Pic­nic on Wednesday April 18 at 10.30am.

Kids are en­cour­aged to bring a teddy bear as they lis­ten to sto­ries and make honey sand­wiches. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.msc.qld.gov.au.
