Free art packs created to keep kids busy these holidays

Art packs have been created by BRAG staff to help children explore their creativity during the school holidays.

Bundaberg Regional Art Galleries staff are helping to keep children entertained during the school holidays by offering free, creative art packs.

The packs include two activities for children to create a moving toy, as well as a booklet featuring art and craft to help imaginations run wild.

Bundaberg Regional Council's arts, culture and events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the packs were free and now available to pick up from Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery.

“With many activities over the school holidays becoming cancelled or postponed due to Covid restrictions, the staff at BRAG wanted to help keep children entertained while putting their creativity to use,” he said.

“They have come up with these fantastic free art packs for all to enjoy.”

Cr Learmonth said there were two art packs available, with the first containing a flapping bird and chomper creation while the second featured resources to make a unique paper plane and frog in a pond.

“These activities have been created to get children thinking about how to utilise a plain piece of paper by transforming it into something wonderful and imaginative,” he said.

“Staff are hoping that by making these simple mechanisms, children will become inspired to invent other moving toys.”

“The arts really is a great platform for children to embrace ‘dreaming big' on the journey to becoming tomorrow's inventors!”

Art Pack 1 will be available form the Gallery reception desk from Monday 10 January to Friday 14 January.

Art Pack 2 will be available from Monday 17 January to Friday 21 January.

Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery is located at 1 Barolin Street and is open from Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 5pm and Saturday, Sunday and public holidays 10am to 2pm.
