Bugs and Beasts

Learn, create and be entertained at the same time these School Holidays with the Bugs and Beasts School Holiday Activity Programme. Each of our activities is focused on bugs, beasts or both. While the theme is buggy and beastly, there is nothing to be afraid of and all of the activities are free and super fun. All children must be supervised during activities. 

Download your copy of the Bugs and Beasts School Holiday Programme or pick one up at the library.
