Creative ways to enjoy the school holidays with kids at home
As kids and families take a well-earned break from remote learning, Victoria Together has collated a fun-packed program of activities to keep young people entertained at home during the school holidays.
Make a film
Aspiring young filmmakers can learn a range of filmmaking and production skills through ACMI’s Film It toolkit. ACMI also has a range of resources to help you learn how to craft your own claymation characters, invent a wacky contraption and create your own stop motion animation, when you discover the Magic of Aardman.
The NGV is providing free creative experiences so kids can tune in to virtual art classes, download activity sheets and take artistic inspiration from home. Find out more.
Each week, the team at Craft Victoria release a new creative activity to foster important creative skills and beat boredom.
Movers and shakers
