Holiday fun to keep kids happy

HAVING trouble entertaining the kids for the last week of the holidays?

Seen every talking animal movie on offer? No fear, there's plenty of activities to keep them amused.

Brumby's at Lismore Shopping Square is running a Create a Cupcake stall until Friday.

Inspired by a recent MasterChef episode, the stall allows kids to get creative and decorate their own cupcakes foronly $2 each and will be situated outside Woolworths from 11am to 2pm each day this week.

Brumby's Lismore Square franchisee Donna Faulkner said they had so many kids anxiously waiting yesterday morning they had to open half-an-hour early.

“They get a plain cupcake and get to decorate it with lollies and sprinkles, but some kids just grab the bag of lollies!” Ms Faulkner said.

Kids are also able to make their own bread plaits out of dough and bake them in Brumby's ovens.

For the kids who like to get active, the Police and Community Youth Clubs (PCYC) run a vacation care program every school holidays.

Kids aged between six and 13 are able to get involved in activities such as science experiments, treasure hunts, group sports and cooking classes.

“About two-thirds of the kids are regulars,” activities co-ordinator MarkIrwin said.

“We like to keep the groups small so they actually get to know each other and make friends.”

Dodge ball is a favourite among the majority of the kids, as are the cooking classes.

“We get to watchmovies and go in the games room, but my fav-ourite activity is cooking when we baked biscuits,” Daniel Wall, 12, said.

For a full list of programs on offer call PCYC Lismore club manager Mark Greig on 6621 6276.
