I'm a freelance writer living in Perth. Having 2 young kids with endless energy, we are always on the lookout for new outdoor activities.
City of Stirling's libraries are good in producing children activities for various occasions like school holidays. I am definitely a fan as their activities in the past have been creative, organised, and age-appropriate. For Childrens Book Week this year, they are holding two different activities.
The first is a Sunday Book Week Spectacular which is going to be held at Karrinyup Community Centre (Davenport Street, Karrinyup) on Sunday 21 August from 2.30pm - 4.30pm. There will to be entertainment for kids including face painting, games and fancy dress parade.
Being a Childrens Book Week event, a story or two, of course, will be told, this time by WA author David Caddy. WA illustrator Samantha Hughes will demonstrate her skills in Fractured Fairytales. Come dress as your favourite book character and you may indeed win an iPod Shuffle or an iTunes Voucher.
The second activity is the Pizza Pyjama Story Time. Conducted at six of their libraries at 6.30-7.30pm on different dates (Monday 22 August – Dianella and Scarborough; Tuesday 23 August – Inglewood and Osborne; Wednesday 24 August – Karrinyup and Mirrabooka), kids will get to enjoy pizza and be entertained by our book week stories. Come dressed in your pyjamas, bring your teddies and beanbags. Booking required.
Previous bookable City of Stirling library events proved very popular, so book early to avoid disappointment.
