Easter came early to Queen’s Park Library as local children enjoyed seasonal activities on Thursday 17 March. First there was egg decoration (the polystyrene variety, not the real thing), during which the kids were encouraged to be as creative as possible and come up with their own designs. They had some brilliant ideas – as well as the more traditional rabbits we had a very colourful Easter peacock and a couple of aliens.
The children were an incredibly well-behaved bunch and even helped pack up! The promise of a chocolate egg hunt once the craft materials were tidied away was definitely a good incentive.
On Saturday 19 March, Westminster’s Family Learning Service continued the theme with their Easter Eggstravaganza. Parents and children worked together to make detailed 3D chickens and eggs. One participant, Maryam, was particularly impressed with her creation and commented:
“I really liked it today because of how I made the chicken. It was stunning. I couldn’t believe my eyes!”
We’ve got lots more free children’s activities on offer during the Easter holidays, including a family film, April Fool’s crafts and jokes and a gaming afternoon. See you there!
