July School Holidays – Kids activity packs
July 6, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until July 17, 2020
This July school holidays, Orange Regional Museum and Orange Regional Gallery are producing a selection of free activity packs for kids inspired by our current exhibitions.
Order your free activity packs by choosing your pick-up date, then selecting from three activity pack(s). You can choose to pick up any weekday of the school holidays during our regular opening hours (9am-4pm).
There are three packs to choose from:
- Regenerate: Plants — Get creative while celebrating the unique environment of Mt Canobolas. Make your own leaf wall hanging like those in Regenerate, or create a forest family of tree hands.
- Regenerate: Animals — Learn more about the animals that call Mt Canobolas home. Get busy with some insect-inspired origami, make a nest for a flame robin, or test your memory skills.
- Capturing Nature — Dive deeper into our travelling exhibition from the Australian Museum with three animal craft activities. It’s a lucky dip, so you could get activities about sharks, cassowaries, flying fish or snakes.
Each pack includes at least two activities, and comes with most of the materials you’ll need, like printed templates, coloured paper and stick on eyes. You should make sure you have access at home to scissors, glue, stapler, and at least one of the following: coloured pencils, crayons, markers or paint.
These activities are suitable for children aged 6+ to complete independently. Children younger than 6 will also enjoy them, but might need more assistance from an adult.
Pick up details
You can pick up your pre-ordered activity pack from the Museum on Mondays-Fridays (9am-4pm). We have limited materials, so pre-booking your free activity packs is essential!
Unfortunately, face-to-face school holiday activities are still on hold at both the Museum and Gallery due to COVID-19 restrictions.
