COVID notwithstanding, Central Coast Council has lots of online fun lined up for the coming school holidays, from September 20-October 4.
There will be a range of online activities for ages six to 17, as well as some family activities, designed to spark creativity, imagination and learning.
Children aged 6-12 can put their engineering skills to the test and build a marble run using all recycled materials during the Great Recycle Marker Challenge.
Once registered, participants will be sent a list of everything needed.
Photos of the creations will be shared on the Children @ Your Library Facebook group and in library branches.
Children aged 12 and over can pick up their markers and paper and join in the Doodle Prompt Challenge: Flower Power.
Children will be sent a film to watch that provides tips and inspiration for fun doodles.
The event runs from September 18-October 3.
Kids can also get their creative juices flowing in the Ghost-Writing Story experience or create their own poem and artwork at the Blackout Poetry Workshop!
They can also join the online book clubs – Bookblasts for primary school students and Tangents for high schoolers – where they can enjoy chats about books, graphic novels or games that have been adapted for movies and which version was better.
The popular online gaming sessions are also returning with Dungeons & Dragons and Rangers of Shadowdeep sessions on offer.
There will be an online family trivia session via Zoom and Kahoot from 11am-noon on September 27.
A Booktalk Online session from 7-8pm on September 23 will look at The Wreck by Meg Keneally.
Full details and booking information for all events is available on Council’s website.
