With September school holiday almost here, schoolies in the Scenic Rim will be treated to more than 40 fun-filled activities for kids of all ages to enjoy – thanks to Council’s list of free and low-cost activities.
“School holidays can be an expensive time for families, which is why Council is pleased to deliver an exciting calendar of events that is affordable and fun for all ages and interests,” Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen says.
“Families will be able head to their local library and participate in more than 22 free activities, which range from story and rhyme time, author talks and craft workshops, Lego building sessions, games and even the chance to make your own frog habitat to take home.”
Councillor Christensen says there will be cooking classes for budding young chefs to learn new recipes, theatre workshops for aspiring actors to test their drama skills, watercolour workshops for creative kids to learn new techniques, as well as drumming and rhythm workshops for youngsters who love music – all within a low price range from $12 to $25 per person, to cover the costs of materials used.
The popular Kids’ Flicks will also be returning, with a number of Hollywood blockbusters being shown on the big screen. Families should head on down to the Boonah Cultural Centre, The Centre Beaudesert and Zamia Theatre in Tamborine Mountain to watch special screenings of Dream Builders, Maya the Bee 3, Raya and the Last Dragon, Spirit Untamed and Tom and Jerry.
“Going to the movies has long been a favourite pastime for families, and with this line-up of movies there are going to be a lot of happy young ones,” Cr Christensen says.
“At only $5 a ticket, that means there is extra left over for movie snacks.”
