For families staying put this school holidays, if you’re stumped as to how to keep the kids busy you don’t need to look far.

The City of Greater Geraldton has put out a revamped school holiday program for the Easter break, with a variety of choices and simplified layout.

“We want to make sure we’re providing you with the most up to date information — especially in these uncertain times — so we have moved many of the listings online,” Mayor Shane Van Styn said.

Active options include soccer and skating clinics, sunset yoga and wheelchair basketball, while for the creatives there are Dungeons and Dragons, cupcake decorating classes, low tox potion party and a succulent plant workshop.

The April school holidays will also see the return of the Critter Trail on Chapman Road, an interactive experience for young detectives.

The trail is a series of art pieces along the CBD part of Chapman Road depicting critters that have “borrowed” art from the City’s collection.

Participants have to spot what letter each critter has made off with in order to solve a puzzle. The password must go into the critter chest at the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery, and every participant gets a ‘reward’.

The trail is part of the 12-month pilot project that has seen Chapman Road into a more pedestrian-friendly space.

Visit the art gallery’s website to learn more about the Critter Trail.
