School holidays kick off this week and there are plenty of things to keep the kids entertained.
For a gold coin donation youngsters five and up can create Easter bunny, Easter basket, or Mother's Day keyring crafts every day of the school holidays at Crookwell Library (excluding public holidays when the Library is closed). No bookings are required.
Gunning Library will also be hosting a stained glass light catcher craft activity for kids aged five and up from 2.30-3.30pm on Wednesday, April 17. The cost is $5 per child or $10 for families with more than two children. For further information, please contact Gunning Library on 4845 1231.
Both libraries also have a huge catalogue of DVDs, books, music and digital collections available to borrow for littlies through to teens.
If your kids prefer the outdoors you could take a bushwalk through the Grabine Lakeside State Park or Abercrombie River National Park or explore the breathtaking Wombeyan Caves.
They could also take their boards, blades or scooters for a spin at the shire's skate parks in Gunning, Taralga and Crookwell - and if you visit Crookwell's Clifton Park, why not pack some supplies and try out the park's new all access barbecue.
The kids could also expend some energy at their nearest community playground. Crookwell, Gunning and Laggan Public Schools' playgrounds will also be open from 8am-6pm throughout the school holidays as part of the NSW Government's Share Our Space Program.
