Fun fills school holiday

ACROSS the Coffs Coast children are making the most of their school holidays, cramming each day with as many fun-filled activities as parents can be dragged along to.

From cartoon kite-making at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery and kids’ discos at C.ex Coffs to rock climbing, gymnastics, trampolining, ball games, athletics and dance at Jr Superstar Sports, the list goes on and on.

Back at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery, Lisa Magri was busy teaching tiny hands how to handle a chisel point Texta to create flowing lines.

“The kids have been learning about creating lines that move. Cartoons are flowing and expressive and the kids need to choose when they will use a narrow versus thick line,” Ms Magri said.

“They have done a great job and are excited about flying their kites at the end of it.”

Sailor Rose said it was “fun” and “interesting” to practise drawing different lines and trace cartoon characters.

Like Sailor, children across the coast will be enjoying holiday activities before school returns on April 27.
