Boredom will be kept at bay these coming school holidays with painting, bushwalking skills, robotics, adventure writing and pottery workshops among the activities on offer in the City of Logan.

Action-packed activity programs will be offered by Logan Libraries, Logan Art Gallery and the KRANK School Holiday Program during April.

The city’s libraries will host free, fun events and activities for teens and younger children including craft, robotics, LEGO and adventure-writing sessions.

Children can learn how to create their own felt animal bookmark and paper characters to take home.

There will also be sessions on how to make dreamcatcher looms and phone charms from air-dry clay.

Eight to 14-year-olds can learn how to build and code a robot using one of LEGO’s latest robotics applications Spike Prime.

To mark National Youth Week (April 7 to 13), the libraries will also launch free loans of Sphero robots.

Library users can then borrow these robots on an ongoing basis.

To help those 10 years and over learn more about the robots, workshops will be held at Beenleigh, Logan West, Jimboomba, Logan North, Marsden and Logan Central libraries between Tuesday, April 9 and Friday, April 12.

Each workshop participant can borrow the Sphero robot they use in the session through their library membership card to allow them to keep learning and playing with them at home.

Bookings are essential for the library’s holiday program and can be made through Logan Libraries.

The KRANK School Holiday Program, featuring activities for children from 5 to 17 years old, runs from Tuesday, April 2 until Sunday, April 14.

A new KRANK activity these school holidays is the painting in the garden sessions for 5 to 17 year olds in Jimboomba Community Garden on Sunday, April 7 and Saturday, April 13.

Bookings for the KRANK program open at 9am on Monday, March 18 online through KRANK.

No bookings can be accepted before this date.

Activities are always popular and those interested are encouraged to book early once the booking window opens.

KRANK program booklets are available at Council’s Customer Service Centres and Logan Libraries or visit the website for the full program.

School holiday workshops will be held at Logan Art Gallery to tie in with the new exhibitions being launched there this Friday (March 8).

Artist Fiona West will host two different optical animation workshops on Tuesday, April 9.

Fiona’s exhibition – The marvellous and magical: collage and the moving image – is on display at the gallery from this Friday (March 8) until Saturday, April 20.
