SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN AND ENTERTAINMENT ON REDLANDS COAST That common school holiday refrain by children “I’m bored, there’s nothing to do” doesn’t need to be heard by parents and carers on the Redlands Coast, with a host of winter school holiday activities, events and entertainment now on offer. Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said Council facilities and spaces were well organised and well-resourced to put the fun and enjoyment into holidays, with something to cater for almost every taste and hobby. “Our Redland City Council libraries are a hive of activity with everything from a Lego Challenge to monster-making fun, family movies, yoga, bag-making and a magical morning of dress-ups inspired by the movie/stage show Frozen. “There is no cost for our library activities, but you do need to book to secure your child’s spot, with some events and activities already having a waiting list.” Council’s environmental education hub, Redlands IndigiScapes Environmental Education Centre, also has a fantastic mix of activities and workshops for all ages and abilities. There’s also a beeswax wrap making workshop, wild weaving circle workshop, papercrete planters activity and a cyanotype printing fun morning. Redland Art Gallery is hosting several events and workshops, starting with four events on Tuesday July 5, featuring paper animation with local artist Fiona West for children aged 5-10 years, followed by workshops for children aged 11-16 years, ‘Indigo vessels’ with Sandra Pearce on Thursday, July 7. Bookings are essential for most activities as numbers are limited. More information is available on the Redland Art Gallery website. Words, science and circus skills are on offer at Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) during the holidays. There are two performances of The Alphabet of Awesome Science on July 9, where fascinating words inspire scientific surprises that float, squirt, ignite and erupt. Flipside Circus will hold short and full-day workshops for children from four-16 years on July 7 and 8. Details, including booking information, is available on the RPAC website.
