So Much Fun, You'll Wish You Were A Kid Again!

Christchurch City Council





One of the great things about summer in Christchurch is being outside in any one of our beautiful parks. Combine that with fun, frivolity and children and it's another perfect day!

Over six days in early January, in parks around Christchurch, Kidsplay will enthral hundreds in the community. Morning sessions run from 10.30am to 1.15pm and in the afternoon from 1.45pm until 4.30pm (there's an alternative venue if it rains). Sharks and Fishes, Loose Caboose, Parachute Games and the Earthball are just a few of the activities planned. Whether you have pre-schoolers or older children, Kidsplay offers fun and entertainment for everyone.

There's even a special surprise that involves Tim, (an apprentice wizard), Topshelf, (who is the most powerful wizard in the land) and how to save the world from Sour-man, (one of the darkest forces of evil the world had ever known)! So don't miss Kidsplay, and the Amazing Games Team!
