Face-to-face Creative Kids Club sessions return from Monday 1 March! Until this time, sessions will continue to run online. Please read on for more information.

Drop-in to your local library and get your craft on after school. Each week we will be exploring different themes and trying our hands at a range of STEAM-based activities. Get stuck into papercraft, construction, problem-solving and more!

Creative Kids Club is aimed at 5-12 year old children

To help us stay COVID-Safe, please bring along your pencil case with colouring pencils, textas, scissors and glue. We will have limited craft supplies and will be practicing safe handling of materials.

All sessions 3:45pm to 4:45pm (excluding school and public holidays).

Mondays at Altona North Community Library
Tuesdays at Newport Community Hub
