Timaru children have been flocking to South Canterbury Museum this week for the first of two weeks’ school holiday fun.

The Courier reporter Greta Yeoman popped down to the Perth St site to take photos of the first day’s activities, and found youngsters making their own badges.

The museum is running various activities on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The next event, a Make-a-Waka workshop, will be held tomorrow and next Friday. Bookings are required.

The badge making, which people can just drop-in for, will be held again on Monday.
