Gladstone is hub for holiday fun

THERE'S no reason for letting your kids laze around these holidays with all the great activities the Gladstone region has on offer.

There are educational activities, arts and crafts, action-packed fun in BMX demonstrations and rides, canoeing and horse riding just to name a few.

The Tondoon Botanic Gardens will be hosting many activities both weeks of the spring holidays.

Children can experience and appreciate the large array of flora and fauna at the garden during the activities.

Libraries across the region, ranging from Boyne Island to Mount Larcom, are all holding fun activities catering for a range of ages, which will continue through the duration of the holidays.

Stockland Gladstone is also providing youth with entertainment both weeks of the holidays.

This week kids can get creative and stuff their own teddy bears at the centre court from 10am until 2 pm.

The bears come with a wishing ceremony, complete with a birth certificate for the special bear kids can take home.

On the second week of the school holidays GAPDL's Communities for Children program will be entertaining the kids with plenty of free art and craft activities at Stockland.

Kids will be able to design door hangers, crayon placemats, create spring flowers and listen to enchanting tales during storytime.

The Gladstone region has countless fun activities for your children these September school holidays, hopefully leaving little room for boredom for youngsters.
