Goulburn Valley Libraries will be ‘Going Wild’ these school holidays. The very popular #TakeHome craft packs back again to encourage a bit of creativity.

Inside every pack are four different wild animal crafts to make. They include templates, instructio­ns and any additional extras required to finish each animal.

These activities are great for all ages and can easily be made by younger children with a little bit of grown-up help.
