ART & CRAFT 10AM – 2PM

Map it Out
Create a map of the street where you live. Do you live in a unit, a house or a maybe it’s a two storey house? Are there many cars in your street? What colour is your car?

Circle Painting
This collaborative art project sees us “going places”. Choose a spot and begin by painting a circle. Children will then rotate around the table and add to the previous child’s art to create a super collective artwork.

Transculpture
Get creative and sculpt your own mode of transport. If you’re feeling especially inventive, you can create yourself a new way to get around.

Traction Transition
It’s time to have some wheely good fun. We’ll use cars, bikes, trucks and tractors instead of brushes to bring out our creative side..

STORY TIME 10AM, 12PM & 2PM

Doors in the air
Doors usually take us from one place to another, but… they can also act as a doorway to our own imagination.

Great day for up
Let’s get “Up” beat with this great Dr Seuss classic and discover what’s “Up” in the Discovery Space.

Not a box
A box is just a box….unless it’s not a box. This story shows us all that a box can go as far as your imagination allows.

On the way to Nana’s
Join in on one family’s spectacular adventure counting backwards across the Kimberley.

Wombat goes walkabout
Wombat is looking for his mum. Along the way he meets some wonderful creatures who all think he’s pretty ordinary… until one day.

When we go camping
There’s always something to do when you’re camping from sun up to sunset. Join this busy family in some campsite fun.
