Creative Christmas Holiday Activities for the Kids

The Christmas school holidays are nearly here, and if you’re already stressing out about ways to keep the kids occupied, never fear! Here are four different festive events for your little ones (and you!) to enjoy. All events are free, or just $3 and are best suited for kids aged 5 to 12.

Summer Wonderland

Every weekday up until the 24th of this month the Wanneroo Library is holding a free, festive event that celebrates Christmas by the beach, in the bush and under the Australian sun. Families will be given the opportunity at Wanneroo Library to make decorations for a driftwood tree, create gumnut koalas and decorate eucalyptus leaves. It’s a true Aussie Christmas!

Christmas Sand Art: Dec 18

From 10.30am, bring the kids down to the Joondalup Library where they can create Christmas artwork out of coloured sand.

Christmas Bauble Decorating: Dec 18

After spending the morning making sand art, head over to Whitfords Library where the kids can create unique Christmas baubles to hang in your family home, or even give away as unique little gifts.

Christmas Stocking Decorating - 20 Dec

Keep the creativity flowing all week and visit the Duncraig Library from 10.30am. Your kids can prepare for Christmas by sewing a felt stocking and threading a unique beaded gift.
