Dare to Explore @ Central City Library

Kia Māia te Whai @ Ngā Whare Mātauranga o Tāmaki Makaurau

Make a magnetic fishing game or try drawing your own kowhaiwhai pattern in this very fishy session with challenges from the Kia Māia te Whai challenge sets. This session is recommended for slightly older children, aged 7 years plus, because it involves drawing and cutting which can be challenging for younger children. Children can take part in this session if they are enrolled in Dare to Explore or Kia Māia te Whai and collect stamps for the challenges.

Challenge Buster: This event will help you complete a Dare to Explore or Kia Māia te Whai challenge!

Ngā Ika:
* Māu e whakahoahoa he tauira kōwhaiwhai mā ngā tauira ā te mangō, te pātiki, te moana ranei.
* Rangahau i ngā momo taputapu i whakamahia e te Māori mō te hī ika, me te hanga anō hoki, i tōu ake taputapu hī ika.

(Translation) The Fish Family:
* Have a go at designing your own kōwhaiwhai pattern using the shark, flounder or ocean patterns
* Research the different methods and devices that Māori used when it came to fishing and have a go at making your own device for catching fish.

This session is aimed at children aged of 7 to 13 years and their families.

Please note that children under the age of 14 must be accompanied to the Central City Library by a parent or other caregiver.

Dare to Explore @ Central City Library and Kia Māia te Whai @ Ngā Whare Mātauranga o Tāmaki Makaurau

Children aged 5 to 13 years can sign up for Auckland Libraries’ free summer reading adventure online and in library branches from Monday 7 December.

Dare to Explore and Kia Māia te Whai are about reading every day (even if it’s just a little bit) and completing fun new challenges.

Come along to the library for special holiday events and activities, or to share what you’re reading, creating and discovering. When you finish at least four challenges, you’ll be invited to a celebration party at the end of the summer holidays!

Once you’ve signed up, pick up your activity book from your local library and you’re ready to go!

The countdown is on for Dare to Explore 2015... can you unlock the secret?
