Bellingen Shire libraries school holiday program

Bellingen Shire Branch Libraries have planned a holiday full of craft activities for local children.

In celebration of Autumn, workshops will teach participants to make an autumn leaf Suncatcher, use nature’s seasonal treasures to do some Nature Weaving or make a wooden Anzac.

Using a range of collected items and craft supplies children will have endless fun designing and decorating their creations.

“Undertaking arts and craft is great for child development and helps them to practice important skills such as coordination, fine motor skills and understanding shapes and colours. It also boosts visual learning and builds patience,” said Council’s Manager of Community Wellbeing, Alison Pattinson.

Workshop dates are as follows:
