Wondering what fun things your kids can do this summer holiday? Tameside Libraries and Culture has a packed programme of exciting activities for your little ones.

The month of activities begins at the end of July and is themed around nature. 

Weekly outdoor crafting events see children create leaf art, butterfly feeders and fairy dens in different green spaces around Tameside.  

Every Wednesday families can enjoy a live theatre performance in local parks. Productions range from fairy-tale favourites to modern stories, but it’s important to note that booking is required to attend.  

The Portland Basin Museum is hosting indoor craft activities and a summer exhibition all about food. They are also selling Make, Do and Play bags that are full of summer craft ideas for only £1. To keep safe, booking is needed for the museum.  

For those families that want to take part but might still be self-isolating, zoom craft activities are happening on Monday’s and hosted by a resident artist.  

Big readers are invited to get involved in the 2021 reading challenge. Its theme is ‘Wild World Heroes’ and is presented in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund. By borrowing books from the library and reading them, children aged four to 11 can collect stickers and rewards.  

When they finish six books, they’ll receive a medal and certificate and by taking part in the challenge they’ll be helping to make a difference to the environment.
