We promise these creative courses won’t
feel like more school time.
FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE KIDS’ HOLIDAY PROGRAM
This diverse program of short courses includes painting,
theatre, street art, animation, photography, pottery and
more. Classes are divided into three different age groups,
so you can be sure content is age-appropriate. Fremantle
Arts Centre, Apr 7-17 , 9432 9555.
Perfect for kids who need to be in control, this workshop
teaches them how to make their own puppet in the
morning, followed by Spare Parts’ latest show in
the afternoon. Treat your budding puppet-master to
a day of creative magic. Spare Parts Puppet Theatre,
Apr TBC, 9335 5044.
It’s like a secret insiders’ club for zoo fans. Participants
experience exclusive animal encounters, as well as themed
crafts and games. The second rule of Zoo Crew? Tell
everyone about it. Perth Zoo, Apr TBC, 9474 0444.
‘Zookeeper’ is up there with ‘pop star’ and ‘Batman’ as
a dream career. Fortunately, Perth Zoo’s newest holiday
program can make it a reality (for the day) – kids will learn
how to weigh and check animals by shadowing one of the
zoo’s qualified wildlife vets. Perth Zoo, Apr TBC, 9474 0444.
SWAMP SAFARI HOLIDAY ADVENTURES
They’re going to play in the mud at some point, so why
not make it an educational experience? This guided
bushwalk includes an opportunity to scoop up invertebrate
samples from the lake. Herdsman Lake Wildlife Centre,
Apr TBC, 9387 6079.
It can feel like you need a degree in nutrition to pack an
appropriate lunchbox, so why not defer that responsibility
to the person eating it? This hands-on course teaches kids
how to prepare healthy lunch and snack recipes – from
harvesting produce, to chopping and prep, and eating the
end product. Scenic Drive, Wanneroo, Apr TBC, 6201 5054.
In this four-hour workshop, budd-ing chefs will learn
the skills they need to replicate dishes at home. Expect
a meal of sausage rolls, flat bread, vegetable skewers and
chocolate slice sometime soon! Lord Street, Highgate,
Apr TBC, 0415 365 395.
SCARBOROUGH BEACH SURF SCHOOL
Look on the bright side – when they fall in love with
the waves (as they inevitably will) you’ll have to take
family holidays down to Margs. Surfing classes are also
great for improving kids’ confidence in the water and
developing essential beach safety skills. Scarborough
Beach, Apr TBC, 9447 5637.
CITY SUMMIT SCHOOL HOLIDAY COURSES
If the kids are climbing the walls at home, take them
somewhere they can do it literally. They’ll learn the basics of
belaying, bouldering and navigation, and have plenty of fun
in the process. Harris Road, Malaga, Apr TBC, 9248 7035.
nJUST FOR FUN
Birthday parties are exciting for kids, stressful for parents.
These two-hour dance sessions – just $10 for kids aged
4 to 11 – have DJs and party games, with no bookings
required. Seriously, that must be the easiest party you’ve
ever heard of. Royce Court, Joondalup, Apr, 9301 5828.
