CHIL­DREN around the re­gion have made the most of the win­try weather by head­ing in­doors for some school hol­i­day fun.

Har­vey Li­brary wel­comed its new­est mem­bers when it hatched 14 baby chick­ens early last week.

The chicks will stay at the li­brary for the re­main­der of the hol­i­days.

Chil­dren got cre­ative with cup­cakes at Aus­tralind Li­brary on Thurs­day at a special cake dec­o­rat­ing work­shop.

“It was a great turn out and a fan­tas­tic win­ter hol­i­day ac­tiv­ity,” li­brar­ian Laine Brown said.

“Ev­ery­one put a lot of ef­fort into their dec­o­rat­ing, and took great pride in their work.”

Con­stance Feng, 5, and Yuze Xu, 5, both of Kingston, draw some of their own cre­ative cup­cake de­signs.

Leigh Cock­ing, 7, of Aus­tralind, puts the fin­ish­ing touches to his cre­ation with Ash­ton Mor­ris, 6, Keira Mor­ris, 7, and Abby Dick­en­son, 12, all of Kingston.
