As a parent, the looming school holidays can be stressful. Keeping kids entertained for the two-week break can sometimes feel like a herculean task! That’s why Casuarina Square will be running a five-day school holiday program for children aged 6-12 years, kicking off on Monday 10 April. The program will run every day until Saturday 15 April (except Good Friday) from 12noon to 2pm – leaving you with plenty of time to fit in your food shop or a little ‘me’ time, too! Here’s what your family can get up to with us this Easter:
Each day of the program, kids can enjoy two craft sessions; one at midday and another at 1.30pm. At the start of the week (on Monday), kids can design their own Easter egg using fun and colourful materials, while on Tuesday it’s all about chicken puppets! On Wednesday, your smalls will love creating stained ‘glass’ frames with Easter designs, an Easter basket on Thursday and an Easter parade-ready bunny visor on Saturday. Our friendly session leaders will be on hand to ensure every child has something to take home and proudly show off to Mum and Dad.
Lead by Music and Movement with Mel, our daily music sessions will run for half an hour at 12.55pm. Packed with group involvement, games, movement, dance and song, children will enjoy joining in with songs they know and love.
This Easter holidays, Casuarina Square is running an exclusive Build-A-Bear pop-up workshop experience, located on Level 1 near Cue and The Coffee Club. Kids are welcomed to the workshop to bring their very own ‘lil cub’ to life during an interactive heart ceremony. Bears will become a member of the family right away, as kids have the chance to name their bears and take home an official birth certificate, too! Contact us to book ahead and secure your place, as limited spaces and sessions are available on April 10, 11 and 13.
Don’t forget, there’s also live toddler entertainment each Tuesday in the Food Court from 9.30am, as part of Casuarina Square’s Toddler Tuesdays, and the excitement of our kid-friendly fountain at The Quarter. We look forward to welcoming your family to Darwin’s most fun and friendly shopping destination.
