NOW that the excitement of Christmas is over, the question on many parents lips is “What to do for the rest of the school holidays?”
The children who live or visit the Myall are spoilt with beaches, rivers and bush to explore.
But if you’re looking for something to do indoors, then Tea Gardens Library has some fun activities ahead in January.
The Library is closed until Wednesday 3 January giving Librarians Chris Shelly, Carol Johnson and all the volunteers who give their time throughout the year, a well earned rest.
But when the doors open again, there’s lots to do from books to borrow to computers to use to google the world.
And returning by popular demand is the search for hidden treasure at the ‘Crazy Daisy Magic Show and Pirate Party’.
“Come dressed as your favourite, swashbuckling pirate, mermaid, monster or princess,” Chris Shelly said.
“It will be full of excitement, mayhem, fun facts, games, games, magic and of course treasure!”
The Pirate Party is suitable for children aged five years and up, and costs $7 per child.
The swashbuckling takes place on Wednesday 17 January from 2.30pm until 3.30pm.
If you miss the pirates there’s also Crafty Science taking place at Tea Gardens Library on Wednesday 24 January from 2.30 till 3.30pm.
The afternoon will be full of crazy, messy, slimy fun.
Again the cost is $7 per head and suitable for ages 5 to 12.
Bookings are essential for both activities.
Head to the MidCoast Council site and its Library page or phone 4997 1265.
