A whole program of free activities
What do soccer, ballet and beach craft have in common? They are just some of the activities planned for Southbank's Little Days Out program this term.

Every Thursday morning, recommencing on February 4th, there is an activity in our beautiful Southbank parklands. And even better all are free. Activities and workshops are designed for children under school age (5 years and younger) and are held in various venues and parkland around Southbank from 9am 1pm.

The workshops help little ones develop gross motor skills through lessons in rugby, soccer, or dance and their fine motor skills through the varied craft workshops. All activities engage imagination, movement and creativity something young children are so good at and enjoy so much.
