Popular play project returns for some half-term fun!
Parents and grandparents of children from across East Hampshire have their February half-term plans sorted as a popular play project returns for a week of fun.
The half-term week, which runs between Monday 18 February and Friday 22 February, will see the return of a range of exciting activities to many towns and villages across East Hampshire – including Ropley, Rowlands Castle, Selborne, Headley Down and Whitehill & Bordon.
The fun-filled week of activities start in Ropley for a candle making session where the kids will get the chance to make their own candles and lanterns for them to go in. There will also be an opportunity to make something for someone special in the afternoon when a Valentine’s arts and crafts session comes to the village hall.
Local children’s entertainer and RAPP favourite, Mr Giant, returns on the Tuesday morning for a circus skills and balloon modelling show and then the kids will be able to make penguins out of recycled plastic bottles in the afternoon.
Wednesday will see local activity and games club, Redwood Active, teach some archery and fencing in the morning and help build some bushcraft and catapults in the afternoon.
Youngsters will be able to build the Antarctic out of Lego on the Thursday while learning about the animals and creatures that lived their both past and present – including dinosaurs!
The week will wind down at Woodlands Hall, in Headley Down, on the Friday with a chance to create a story out of stones and create some art out of recycled bottles – which could include making fish, rockets, bird feeders, turtles and much more!
RAPP was set up 13 years ago by East Hampshire District Council to give children up to the age of 11 (under eights must be accompanied by an adult) the opportunity to get involved in fun activities, games, adventures, workshops and meet new friends in the school holidays.
