Spending your school holiday’s in COVID-19 lock down really sucks. FALSE. Why? Because MYRC, Barnardo’s Australia and Deadly Connections have on-line activities to keep you active, creative and entertained. So why not #stayconnected and be part of the winter school holiday on-line program.

These activities are FREE and open to all ages 12-24 years old, welcoming LGBTQIA+ community and people living with a disability. You can participate in as many activities that you like!

We would like to see all the creative things that you took part in so why not tag us @myrc2204 so we can give you a #shoutout on our social media. You can also email your details to us on so that we can #stayconnected. Some activities also come with a ZOOM tutorial, so watch this space so that you don’t miss out!

Activities to choose from … if you dare to accept them. 🙂

Recycle and Create


Create your own robots from boxes, bottles, tubes, buttons, bottle tops and pipe cleaners or whatever else you have hanging around at home.

Box animal

If you’re getting an Amazon or eBay delivery soon, why not create a box animal using the delivery box! Here’s how you do it. Cut out one end of the box which is where your body will enter through. Then, cut out two oval like shapes on each of the box sides for your legs and arms to hang from. Finally, draw a face on the opposite end of the box and … taaa daaa! This activity is box-erffic for relays.


Ever wanted to sharpen your drawing skills in cartooning, portraits and shading? Well why not have a go with these free drawing tutorials, providing basic tricks and skills in drawing.

FYI: Our ‘deadly’ creative youth worker, Yill, from Deadly Connections will be running a ZOOM tutorial workshop on Free expression Art: drawing and painting. More details will be posted soon … so stayed tuned!

Shadow drawing

All you need is the sunshine for this (or a lamp if it’s a cloudy day). Get out your favourite ‘things’ that you’d like to draw. For example, Pokeamon, Lego, fruit and or figurines. Place the ‘things’ on the edge of the paper, the side that will give a shadow on to the paper. Then sketch or trace the shadow. Optional – add a scenery to bring the characters or images alive!
