Monday, June 21st, 2010 - MarketPlace
MarketPlace Leichhardt is offering daily craft sessions and live performances these school holidays to inspire and encourage kids to switch off their i-Pods and gaming consoles in favour of more hands-on, interactive fun.

From 5-9 July, MarketPlace Leichhardt will host Bob the Builder, followed by daily craft sessions between 12-17 July, giving kids of all ages the chance to get their hands dirty and their creative minds working.

From building to digging to hauling, Bob the Builder and his team are always ready to tackle any project. As he hammers out the solutions that lead to a job well done, The Bob the Builder Show is full of song and dance fun that demonstrates the power of positive thinking, problem solving and follow-through. Most importantly from start to finish, Bob the Builder makes it clear that The Fun Is In Getting It Done!
Michele Brett, Centre Manager, MarketPlace Leichhardt, said the centre’s school holiday entertainment is always popular.

“It’s great to provide an opportunity for families to get out of the house, do something different and engage with others in the community,” she said.

“The free entertainment is also a wonderful opportunity to spend some quality time with your children this winter.”

The daily craft workshops will offer a variety of fun challenges and will provide the materials and guidance needed to create collages, paintings and other personal craft items to take home.

Session Times: 11am and 1pm
