The Gruffalo is one of the stars of 2022 Children’s Week, with a book reading and scavenger hunt among other activities in the last week of October. Eurobodalla Council has been running Children’s Week events for nearly a decade and this year’s celebrations are set to top them all.
Child development officer Jenny Hogg said Council would run several events to celebrate the skills, talents and abilities of the shire’s youngest residents.
“We all love the Gruffalo and although the live show has sold out, we still have plenty of fun with a book reading of this world-wide favourite at Dalmeny on Monday 24 October and a Gruffalo-inspired treasure hunt at Moruya on Thursday 27 October,” Ms Hogg said.
“There are also beach excursions, story time at the Bodalla Nursery and a guided walk at the always popular Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden. And we’re bringing the popular Children’ Week Fun Day back to the Moruya Showground Pavilion – with music and dancing, face painting, art, obstacle course, book reading. Plus, the chance for families and carers to speak to local community-service providers.
“All the activities are filling up fast, so book in soon.”
Children’s Week is a national program and schools, playgroups, early education providers, libraries and community groups across Australia will be hosting activities and events designed to recognise and promote the rights of children to enjoy their childhood.
