Creative and Crafty Delights:

  • Museum Munchkins: Embark on a dino-mite adventure at the Queensland Museum’s Dinosaur Discovery: Jurassic Adventures exhibition (until 23rd July).

  • DIY Easter Fun: Channel your inner Picasso and get crafty! Turn cardboard boxes into rocket ships for interstellar adventures, or whip up some fluffy sock bunnies and adorable chick puppets with simple materials. Don’t forget the egg decorating! Natural dyes like onion skins and beetroot create vibrant swirls, while glitter and stickers add a touch of sparkly personality.
