The final weeks of the Christmas holidays will not be a continuous drag of boredom and lazy days, not on Bunbury Centrepoint’s watch at least.

The shopping centre released its school holiday program last week online, stacked full of fun, free activities for the whole family to enjoy including mini golf, craft sessions and, in a Bunbury first, rides on remote-controlled cars.

Bunbury Centrepoint marketing manager Diana Ashworth said the goal behind the program was to give families something to do in the closing weeks of the holidays.

“We just wanted to create a little bit of activity a week so that parents have something they can bring their kids to and get them out of the house,” she said.

The program will launch tomorrow, being kicked off by the ride-on cars, which will be operating in a vacant shop in the Stirling Centre between 10am and 1pm each day until Friday.

Children will be able to ride on the cars operated remotely by their parents around a specifically designed course.

Mrs Ashworth said the cars had generated the greatest amount of interest so far, with the event thought to be a WA first.

“In Centrepoint, the whole of the target mall is going to be transformed into a mini golf course, running from the 21st to the 25th of January, again with no bookings,” she said.

“The following week we’ve got back-to-school craft, which is a ‘make your own pencil topper’ which is something the kids can take home and use through the 2019 school year.”
