Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

CAN­NON­VALE Li­brary is host­ing a range of ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren these school hol­i­days.

Up­cy­cle an old milk bot­tle by turn­ing it into a cool gar­den sculp­ture at Gar­den Jug Heads to­day from 10am to 11am or 2pm to 3pm.

Ages 6+ are wel­come with a 20-per­son limit per ses­sion. Book­ings are es­sen­tial.

The event is proudly sup­ported by Whit­sun­day Or­ganic Com­mu­nity Gar­den.

Fun Palace will also run on Satur­day, 9am to 11.30am, for any­one who has a love of art and sci­ence.

Cre­ate Lego zi­plines, colour dif­fus­ing art, slime and stress balls, and win­dow art, learn to weave, or par­tic­i­pate in build chal­lenges and the ad­ven­tures box.

This event is for all ages. Book­ings are not re­quired.

Li­brary as­sis­tant Sharon Lam said the ac­tiv­i­ties helped chil­dren to keep their minds ac­tive in a fun and creative way.

“They’re free, fun com­mu­nity events. We do dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties which get chil­dren off their de­vices and do­ing some­thing hands-on which ig­nites their cre­ativ­ity,” Ms Lam said.
