A day full of fun activities has been planned for the whole family to mark Children’s Day on March 5.
The Mid Canterbury Children’s Trust is holding their event at the Plains Museum in Tinwald and trust president Alice Czerski is looking forward to the day following a three year hiatus due to covid.
‘‘This year there will be plenty of activities for children like bungee, a craft tent, paintball target shooting and cornhole throwing.’’
Everything on the day is free, including a sausage sizzle.
The pool should be open as well as opportunity to explore the Plains Museum and Railway complex.
Other groups will also be there like gymnastics, play centre and the toy library.
There are a few new surprises planned this year but Alice is staying mum on what they are, so people have to turn up on the day to find out.
Families are encouraged to bring along a picnic.
‘‘We run it so every child gets the opportunity to have a go at something fun,’’ Alice said ‘‘and to do it with their family and friends.’’
Children’s Day is the main event for the trust but they also get involved in other community events like crafts at Matariki and Light up the Night, face painting at Glow in the Park and donating to Camp Courage.
‘‘We also are looking at other ways we can be involved in the community,’’ Alice said.
Mid Canterbury Children’s Day is on March 5 from 10.30am to 2.30pm at the Plains Museum, Tinwald.
