The Tatura Guardian - - Community - By Madeleine Cac­cian­iga For more in­for­ma­tion on Sto­ry­time in the Park, phone Goul­burn Val­ley Li­braries on 1300 374 765.

The sunshine brought out the crowds in Tatura last week for Sto­ry­time in the Park with Goul­burn Val­ley Li­braries’ ‘House and Home’ themed ac­tiv­ity.

Learn­ing about houses in a fun way, chil­dren aged four and un­der en­joyed list­ing to sto­ries read by chil­dren and youth li­brar­ian Emma Kennedy.

‘‘We had a great turn out, which was fan­tas­tic and a nice sur­prise,’’ Ms Kennedy said.

Chil­dren spent the morn­ing build­ing bird houses out of pa­per be­fore paint­ing and dec­o­rat­ing them to take home.

Ms Kennedy said the chil­dren dis­cussed dif­fer­ent kinds and sizes of houses.

‘‘We dis­cussed what we could make a home out of, start­ing off with pipe-clean­ers and sticky tape, which the kids de­cided wouldn’t be very strong,’’ she said.

Chil­dren en­gaged in singing and danc­ing while ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the great out­doors at Mac­tier Gar­dens.

‘‘We en­cour­age chil­dren to read in all en­vi­ron­ments, to get out­side and be so­cial and a lot of them brought snacks to en­joy for a pic­nic in the park,’’ Ms Kennedy said.
