Central West Libraries are offering take home Rock, Paper, City Craft and Activity Packs to stimulate creative minds during the holiday break. The activity pack means children can don their architect’s hats and design either their own house, or other buildings, vehicles and neighboured adornments for a cardboard version of their town that will be on display, and grow as the entries come in.
There will be several levels of difficulty involved in the construction of these buildings and structural pieces, so the activity will be applicable to a wide range of ages. Central West Libraries are hoping to talk about the concept of a child’s identity within their community, and how everyone has a special place in town.
Central West Libraries are also encouraging children to get creative, and let their imaginations run wild, with possible town improvements such as “make a unicorn stable, a slip n slide, or a giant jumping castle”. Some crafty goodness is included in the pack for building embellishments and decorations.
The second activity is the Lego Challenge: Central West Iconic Buildings. Wherever you live in the Central West, you will find iconic buildings, historic and modern which can all be created in Lego. Simply take photos of the original building and the Lego version and submit them together via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and go into the prize draw.
Children have until Wednesday 29th July to submit their entries to any of the competitions, and winners will be drawn on Saturday 1st August 2020. To reserve a Rock, Paper, City Craft and Activity Pack, please register through Eventbrite and choose to collect from Canowindra Library.
