Central Coast Council has announced a mix of more than 100 free and affordable events in its Summer 2019 School Holidays program.
New to the program is a special series of Citizen Science activities, providing an opportunity to learn about the local environment and make a contribution to scientific knowledge.
The workshops are designed to be educational and lots of fun and include Hollows as Homes, Waterbug Blitz, Native Bees and Insects, and Birds of Woodlands and Wetlands. Council’s Leisure Centres have a packed schedule of swimming and sporting activities.
A variety of swimming programs will be held at Council’s pools, and the sport centres will host football (soccer), basketball and multisport clinics, as well as fun sessions with obstacle courses, slides and jumping castles. Autism and sensory friendly sports sessions will be also held at Niagara Park Stadium for children who require more space in a quieter environment.
At The Entrance, you can enjoy the Peppa Pig stage show or join in the range of other fun activities including the Willy Wonka Scavenger Hunt, Bricks4Kidz and a silent disco.
At Toukley, kids can take part in a circus workshop, play mini golf and get creative before Australia Day by making their own cork hat. In Wyong, kids will enjoy wildlife and reptile displays, a magic and comedy show, plus much more.
At Council’s Libraries, kids can get crafty with rock painting, terrarium sand art and origami, or learn the secrets of make-up artists with special effects make-up workshops at the Erina and Tuggerah branches.
The ever popular Green Living Kids workshops are back too, as well as new wildlife shows where kids can get up close with a range of Australian animals.
A full list of holiday activities is available on Council’s website.
