Some great options for activities to keep the kiddies entertained!
It is #TravelTuesday and we are all spending more time indoors at the moment. We can’t travel very far and with children on their school holidays, parents may be running out of ways to entertain their little ones. Many organisations’ activities and shows have now gone virtual so you can enjoy them from the comfort of your own living room.
For this week’s #TravelTuesday blog, we have created a list of shows and activities that are sure to be a lot of fun for your little ones. It includes everything from online shows to virtual classes so your kiddies will have plenty to choose from.
Take a look below for some of the activities on offer:
Pantomimes are an essential element of Christmas. Although we may not be able to attend the pantomimes in a theatre this year, Wexford Pantomime Society have come up with an innovative way to deliver their 2020 pantomime – “Jack & The Beanstalk 2: Locked Down, But Not Out!”.
The panto is available to view for free on their website here until the 11th of January but you can make a monetary donation on the site if you wish. Half of all donations will go to their chosen charity partner, Focus Ireland.
Looking for something to watch that the whole family will enjoy? The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen is an hour-long show that shows the popular storyteller’s tales in a new way through song and dance. Andersen’s classics like The Little Mermaid, The Emperor’s New Clothes and The Ugly Duckling come to life in this family-friendly show.
The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen is available to book on Wexford Arts Centre’s website here for just €12 per device and is available until the 9th of January.
If your kids enjoy arts and crafts, they will love art classes with Brid Colloton from Wexford Arts Centre. Choose from free videos such as “Bubble Wrap Craft”, “Abstract Tree Art” or “My Pattern and Me” and let your kids explore their artistic side. You can view the free videos here.
