The Wacky Weather Fun Day on Wednesday had kids colouring rainbows, making wind turbines and experimenting with rain droplets at the Bundaberg Multiplex.

It was all part Bundaberg Regional Council's free school holiday activities, with children of all ages getting involved.

Kelly Austin spent the morning at the event with her family and said it was a great opportunity for fun and learning.

“We came out to explore the community event and check out the activities,” she said.

“It's vital to have these activities, they are open community activities which are free and fantastic for communities on a budget.

“The educational activities on offer today, especially the reading and the craft, are all educational activities where they are learning through play.”

Yalah Gillard spent the morning with her vacation care group and said the children had a ball participating.

“They were very excited … they love meeting new kids,” she said.

“I think it's great, our kids are very into the weather at the moment. It's great they are getting to learn know more about it.”

The Wacky Weather Fun Day was held at the Bundaberg Multiplex and was followed by a free screening of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
