With the children spending a lot more time at home over the past year, parents may have exhausted all possible forms of entertainment and be struggling for ideas to keep them amused over the Easter holidays.
But fear not, as West Sussex Libraries has a wealth of activities planned to help children have fun (and learn) at the same time.
Over the holiday, the library service will be providing kids (and their families) with a new and exciting blend of virtual and face-to-face activities which will be available online each Tuesday and Thursday covering the following themes:
- Growing – Tuesday 6 April
- Fun with food – Thursday 8 April
- Fit & Strong – Tuesday 13 April
- Cooking and ingredients – Thursday 15 April
There are competitions and challenges based on some favourite stories about food and growing, as well as ‘science in your kitchen’ experiments to try at home.
For anyone not online, local libraries will have all the activities available bagged up and ready to collect from the door.
“Primarily, these are fun activities for all the family to enjoy – the key aim of our Library Service. But they will also help children learn more about the importance of food for their growing minds and bodies.”
UK Harvest, the Chichester based food rescue charity, will also be supporting the holiday programme.
More information on locations will be posted on the UK Harvest website www.ukharvest.org.uk or on the library social media accounts closer to the time via Facebook: www.facebook.com/WestSussexLibraries and Twitter: @WSCCLibraries.
The holiday activities are open to all whether or not you are a member, but joining the library is free for everyone.
