Shire hosts hol­i­day arts, play time

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

School hol­i­days can be a busy time for par­ents, but with the help of free events in the shire the ‘I’m bored’ card could not be played.

Last Wed­nes­day, Tocumwal’s lit­tle crea­tures were kept en­ter­tained with a free school hol­i­day ac­tiv­ity fun day held at the Memo­rial Hall in De­niliquin St.

Hosted by In­tereach Fam­ily Links worker Sharon Soule, an ar­ray of wildly fun hands on arts and play pro­grams and in­spir­ing ac­tiv­i­ties put the smile on the dials of 10 young­sters.

‘‘We had ev­ery­thing from paint­ing, mak- ing pet rocks, tee-pee, gi­ant con­nect four, it was just great,’’ she said.

‘‘It was sup­posed to be ‘Art in the Park’, then it turned to ‘Art in the Pond’; hence why we moved in­doors.

‘‘Thanks goes to the Memo­rial Hall com­mit­tee in Tocumwal for pro­vid­ing the space free of charge.’’

An­other free hol­i­day pro­gram will be held this week — at Fin­ley to­day and Ber­ri­gan and Tocumwal to­mor­row.

Come cre­ate, dec­o­rate and make wooden mo­biles to hang from 10.30am.
