What's on at Kids Collective - Roma Street Parkland

Finding things to do during the school holidays doesn’t have to be a challenge, Kids Collective at Roma Street Parkland have done all of the hard work for you! 

Kids Collective Roma Street Parkland

During school holidays, the parkland is buzzing with free activities for kids aged 5-12 years old.

Activities are held from 9am-1pm, Thursday to Saturday, during school holidays. There are two classes to choose from on any given day, booking is not required as classes are re-set at regular intervals, so you can come and go as you please. If you would like to grab a bite to eat during your visit, head to the Garden Room cafe for school holiday specials.

Activities change every holidays, so there’s always something new to try. And don’t forget – if you have young kids to entertain, Kids Collective at South Bank Parklands (designed for kids aged 0-5) is on Thursdays from 9am-1pm. Please note that due to seasonal events, Kids Collective is not on at Roma Street Parkland or South Bank during December and January.

Upcoming activities:

Thursday 26 September

Interactive art: Spring Sun Catcher at Children’s Garden Lawn

In this instalment of Kids Collective children will have the opportunity to get creative, constructing a sun catcher using an array of colourful floral petals and leaves. At home the sun catcher can be strung together for a mobile effect or placed against a window pane so light cascades through. Engaging and interactive crafts are proven to assist in children’s development and learning as well as their gross and fine motor skills, co-ordination, concentration and creative thinking. 

Soccer Play at Celebration Lawn 

During this active set of games, kids are shown the basics of soccer in a fun and friendly setting. Attendees will learn kicking, catching, running techniques, as well as coordination skills, and the importance of teamwork.

Friday 27 September
