Roma Street Parkland's School Holiday Fun program is happening from September 20 to 29, with fantastic, free activities for children aged 5-12 years.

Wednesday 20 September

Little Builders 

The Little Builders Program with Little Green Thumbs is a hands on program developed for children with the aim to introduce simple woodworking skills as well as focusing on tool safety. At the end of the workshop, each child will take home their very own creation - either a Toolbox or a Marble Maze!

Nature Craft

Mini Beasts - Loose Parts Play Experience: Join Bazil Grumble and create your own mini beasts with our loose parts play experience! Come and explore the tiny world that goes unnoticed in the parklands and create artistic interpretations of the little creatures who live there. Start by selecting natural materials then assemble your own mini beast creation. By taking a photograph of the artworks before they are disassembled, children will have a permanent reminder of their nature play experience at Roma Street Parkland.
