Marion’s libraries will be packed with little monsters this school holidays as kids let their imaginations run riot at free craft workshops.

Monster-o-Rama will see kids create their own monsters from paper plates, pom poms, pipe cleaners, sequins and googly eyes from 14 April.

Wilhelmina and Wilkie got in the mood by slipping into their favourite monster costumes to join Marion libraries’ children's services officer Simone Sidler in some monster crafting.

“My favourite monster is a purple one and I like making things,” Wilkie, aged four, said.

Monster-o-Rama continues the libraries’ popular school holiday activities which have included detective, medieval and under the sea themes.
