You might feel a bit overwhelmed thinking of how you’re going to keep your children busy while we’re still in lockdown – and might stay in it for a little while longer.
Luckily Wicklow County Council announced its Cruinniú na nÓg line up for 2020 as part of the Creative Ireland Programme and has some exciting new things in store for young people under the age of 18.
Cruinniú na nÓg is Ireland’s national day of youthful creativity. It’s the third year it takes place, but this year is slightly different to the previous two years. That’s because all the free creative activities will take place within the Government and NPHET guidelines of social distancing and staying safe.
Activities include stop-motion animation workshops, a story writing competition, film making and an up-cycling heritage project. Little cooks can look forward to a bake-off lead by celebrity chef and Emmy nominee Catherine Fulvio.
All competitions are free and open to young people under 18 years with fantastic prizes including iPads and much more. On June 13th all submitted work will be digitally showcased on all of Wicklow County Council’s website and social media channels, and also on the Creative Ireland platforms.
