It is a time to gather together and celebrate Matariki.
Hamilton City Libraries and Te Whare o Te Ata – Fairfield Community House are celebrating Matariki by hosting activities for children and families. Learn about the 7 stars of Matariki and participate in a variety of different activities.
Activities include – stargazing, painting, movies, traditional Maaori kite making, seed growing, entertainment and so much more!
Ka kitea a Matariki, ka rere te korokoro - when Matariki is seen, the lamprey migrate.
At Dinsdale Library, we are making hiinaki out of card to catch lamprey and tuna!
At Glenview Library, we have water colour painting activities where you can paint skyscape and use salt for texture.
Come and plant some seeds at St Andrews Library which you can take home in a little pot that you decorate yourself. We will also be making tukutuku stars using wool/string and pegboard.
At Hillcrest Library, we will be doing the Manu tukutuku challenge to make traditional kites.
If you are interested in attending this event, please register your interest as places are limited.
