Nine boredom-busting activities for creative kids

Want to inspire the little ones? Check out this list of activities for creative kids that will get them dancing, drawing, cooking and even coding.

Flying Fox Studios

Flying Fox Studios

A life lived creatively” is the tenet of Flying Fox Studios in Everton Park where the term “art classes for kids” takes on a completely new meaning. Ever heard words like Kindermusik, Zoom Art, Fox Blocks, PlayDates, Scribblers and Zoomers? If your little ones draw, dance, sing or build, Flying Fox is for you.

CoderDojo Brisbane

Brisbane kids are responding in big numbers to the opportunity to take up the coding challenge with their local CoderDojo. An open-source, volunteer-led, global movement of free coding clubs, the program runs five permanent locations around Brisbane for children aged 7 to 17.

Little Days Out

Little Days Out Craft

Keeping the kids entertained just got a whole lot easier thanks to Little Days Out, South Bank’s children’s program. Held in the Parklands, Little Days Out features a rotating range of exciting free activities from musical play to cooking.

Bim Bam Boom

If you have a toddler who loves getting messy, Bim Bam Boom at Graceville is the place to be. Here, they’ll get the chance to play with collage, glue and goop. But toddlers are not the only ones who can discover their artistic talents – children aged 5+ can try their hand at drawing and painting classes.

Creative Kids Brisbane

Get your hands busy. Here, kids of all ages and abilities can learn specific drawing, sculpture, free-form clay work, mixed media, and photo-processing skills under expert guidance, and have fun at the same time.

Queensland Museum

Years ago, the thought of entertaining kids at a museum would not have registered, but now it’s a totally different story. The Queensland Museum caters as much for kids as it does for adults. Marvel at dinosaurs, size up against giant whale replicas and take a look at history’s oldest contraptions.



With a cutting-edge kids’ engagement program, Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art are the perfect spot to introduce the little ones to the wide world of art. They’ll be so engrossed with what they’re doing, they won’t even realise they’re learning.

City Council Events

The “events for kids” page on the Brisbane City Council website is not only jam-packed with suggestions, it brings the events closer to home. This site includes a constantly updated list of activities in various suburbs.

Flipside Circus

Flipside Circus

Flipside Circus is Queensland’s largest youth circus company, with a national reputation for training and shows. Running a year-long program of classes for all ages, Flipside will have your kids doing handstands, swinging hoopla-hoops and somersaulting to their hearts’ content.
