Children’s Week


Children’s Week (24 October - 1 November 2020) is a national celebration of children’s rights, talents and citizenship, taking place annually in October. It celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood, and is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.

Threads of Connection

While we can’t be physically close at the moment, finding ways to stay connected is more important than ever. In partnership with artists from The Ball Room Projects, we are delivering play-based activity packs to let you join in the fun during Children’s Week.

There are three activities in each pack for your family to enjoy and explore ‘thread’ as a symbol for human connection.

To take part at home, please visit the webpage below to access the activity pack tutorials.

Submit photos of your fun using the form below to have the photos added to online gallery, or upload to social media using the tags #marimoments #childrensweekthreads

This activity is tailored to children aged 2-5 years, but the whole family can enjoy!

This Children’s Week activity is presented by Maribyrnong City Council in partnership with the Victorian Government.
