There’s lots of great reasons to head down to your local library this October half-term as families can pick up their free monster-tastic activity pack filled with lots of fun things to do.
And online, libraries are taking people on a trip to the jungle with two virtual events encouraging children to create their own Henri Rousseau inspired jungle scene or take part in a jungle-themed creative writing workshop.
“There’s always something going on at your local library service whether on site or in the virtual world,” Said Cllr Bill Soane, executive member for neighbourhoods and communities. “These free half term events are the perfect opportunity for families to have some fun and entertain their children over half term.”
The free Monster-tastic activity packs can be picked up from your local library from Monday 25 October to Saturday 30 October and are full of great activities including wordsearches, book reviews, colouring and writing challenges for families to enjoy.
Families interested in taking part in either of the virtual events below should email: firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm which event, or events, they wish to attend. They will be sent details of how to join the day before.
- Tiger, Tiger Join artist Chris Holley in a virtual hunt for famous French artist Rousseau and then create your own jungle scene! For young people aged 7 to 10 years old. Monday 25 October 2pm to 2.40pm
- Jungle Creative Writing Workshop with Explore Learning online for children aged 5 to 7 year olds. Tuesday 26 October 1pm to 2pm
