MAP MAKING

Holiday Activity

School Holiday Activity:  JOHN REYNOLDS – A WALK IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD. Artist John Reynolds has drawn a wonderful map especially for the school holidays, taking a journey from the Octagon to the Dunedin Railway Station. These maps will be available in Playspace for you to add your own special features. Imagine that Lower Stuart Street has been closed to traffic on this map, allowing you to draw in your own fantasy streetscape of places you would love to visit on a walk through town. You may like to create a zoo, a robot depot, a park with swings or a swimming pool or a dog park. You can choose!
