Summer holiday fun for kids!

December 19, 2012

Activities for children: Summer School Holidays 2012/13

Paper Craft sessions (mystery theme)

These free fun sessions are aimed at primary aged children. Adult supervision is required. Except for Dannevirke, please register your interest at your local library (see opening hours page) – if you don’t turn up, that’s fine, but we’d rather have too many craft materials available than too few!
